Color Me Creative Classroom Copic Challenge

Happy Monday!  I hope your week has gotten off to a great start!  I am hoping to be very productive this week, but we'll see how that goes.  I've already gotten one thing accomplished today and that is to make my card for the current Copic Challenge (Challenge #18) on Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom site. The challenge was to create a card or project with lots of white on it, using only a small pop of color.  The image had to be mostly white and colored appropriately.  This was the inspiration photo, but our project did not have to be wedding-related:

Here is my card:

I decided to use this sweet Lady Tilda image for my card.  She is from the 2010 Fairy Tale Collection. I colored her with the following Copics: E00, E000, E11, R20 (skin), E27, E31, E35, E50 (hair), R85, R81, R00 (rose and headband) and BG10, C1, C00 (white dress).  I added some Stardust and Pink Stickles here and there for a little sparkle. I cut her out and popped her up on foam tape.  The embossed frame was created with the Sizzix Wreath Embossing Folder.  I kept my embellishments to a minimum, adding only a few tiny ribbon roses to the frame and some little pearl flowers to the corners.  The CS is all from Gina K. Designs (Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight, Layering Weight White and Innocent Pink).

Thanks for dropping by my blog!  Have a wonderful day!
