Lollipop Challenge #26...

Hi everyone! Happy Valentine's Day!! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! The weather here (near SF, CA) was absolutely gorgeous, sunny and mild temps. . . but that is gone now, and the rain is back for the week. Oh well, we need the rain as much as the sun!
Today at Lollipop Crafts, Kim has new challenge for us. . . use your favorite color medium. It could be copics, water colors, pencils, or whatever you prefer to color your images with and this week's sponser is JLJ Designs!

I only color with Copics, but I would love to try other techniques - {sigh!} maybe some day. Back to the card, this week our sponser, JLJ Designs, have generously given us some cute digis to play with! I chose Sugarplum Fairy Bear, isn't she a sweetheart?! For this image I used the following Copic colors: V000, V12, V15, V17, E40, E41, E43, R20, and 0Blender.
I added Liquid Pearls to her outfit and Stickles to her wings. The flower flourish was made with Sakura Glaze gel pens - first I stamped the image on and then traced it over with the gel pens. When dried it gives a light embossed texture...think I'll be using this more often!

So, pick your favorite coloring tools to create something spectacular and join us at Lollipop Crafts
for a chance to win some cute images from JLJ Designs!
Thanks for stopping by! ;)
Happy Valentine's Day and give those that are special to you
a big HUG today!
