This week for Artful Sentiments' Copic Challenge the colors were as shown. Well, E47 was one I didn't have BUT I did have E49. Then RV21 was another I didn't have so I substituted RV17. At least my substitutions were fairly close to each other on copic's color wheel. When I first looked at those colors, all I could think of was Neopolitan ice cream. Alas......no ice cream stamps to be had so I settled for the next best thing......cupcakes! In order for my brown to be light enough I didn't color directly on the paper with it. Instead I touched the tip of my E11 to the E49 and then colored. You have to touch the tip quite often or you run out of color. I used the same technique with the RV17 on the icing so I would get a lighter color. Then I did the same for the 'shadow' under the cupcake using E11. I added sparkle with my Quickie Pen and some ultra fine sparkle. Dang.....that stuff is EVERYWHERE now. It is soooo fine that you can hardly get it out of the tidy tray. AND now I have sparkle all over the carpet in the Stamp Hole too! See that little ribbon slide. You'd never guess that it had it's beginning on a piece of my lingerie! When the old bra gave up the ghost, I cut it apart and saved the plastic pieces from the strap. Shhhhh! Don't tell anyone!
This is also an entry into the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC3). Priscilla made a comment on my dragon card on SCS and invited me to play along. Can't say that I will be able to play all that much but it happened that I could this week. I actually had this card done on Thursday but couldn't post it until Saturday when Kimm's challenge goes live. Since I'm on her Design Team.....no early posting for me!
