Color Me Copic - Challenge #1

Color Me Copic is having their first challenge...to use black and white! Ooh, and the fabulous Rachel has an excellent tutorial on her amazing technique. I definitely had a lot of fun doing this challenge, and I chose Swiss Pixies Ladybug Nora for my card. She can be found at ATS.


used a recent ATS sketch...










and came up with this...


All the b/w paper is from my dd's old papers for paper clothes, was lucky to find scraps that were big enough to use on the card. Also used an image background from Bugaboo stamps (and they're having a great sale right now). Couldn't resist using my stickles, only a touch on her wings and headband! and a shiny ladybug to finish! The flower is made with two little flower punches, and used MS butterfly punch...wish i had a smaller butterfly punch too!

Thanks for stopping by! ;)

Such a beautiful black and white card, Mimi! It's just gorgeous! I wish I could do a monochromatic card like that but I just can't seem to do it right! Hugs, Cami
