Copic Colour Challenge #9

The Copic Colour Challenge this week was to use the following colours.

Well I've never ever done a challenge before and so I'm right in at the deep end with this one using Copics,as I've only had mine a few weeks and still getting to grips with them.I suppose this is the best way to learn though.I'd have never ever used these colours together but was surprised how lovely they went together.I'm not particularly happy with the colouring of this image as I found it a bit fiddly,but it's done now.

Image - Gardenia Greenthumb from Stamping Bella coloured with Copics
Cardstock - SU Bravo Burgundy
Paper - K&Co Que Sera Sera Floral Collage and Crate
Ribbon - SU Old Olive
Nestabilities - Labels 3 and Ribbon Tags Trio
Sentiment - Studio G
Flowers - Prima and Doodlebug (coloured with Copics as I didn't have matching shades)
Pearls - Kanban
Punch - MS Doily Lace
Flowerpot button and Frosted Lace Stickles(on her wings)

Hi Cass, I think your first ever challenge card is fantastic. It's an unusual colour combo but I love it too and it's great how you've used them. Your colouring is gorgeous and I can it's quite an intricate image but it looks wonderful. Such pretty papers and design too. Hope you have a lovely weekend. Chris x
