Color Me Creative Copic Challenge - Golds, Cream and White

Good morning!  Hope you've had a nice weekend!  I have a few gifts to finish up and get in the mail tomorrow, but otherwise, except for cooking, I'm pretty near done with my Christmas preparations.  Never thought I was going to be able to say that!  Before I get back to it, I am here to share another card I made for the Copic Challenge #33 going on now at Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom site.  The challenge is to color with only golds, cream and white.  Because this is a very special challenge for a very special cause, we could enter two projects.  To learn more about the charity Suzanne is supporting and all the challenge details, including the amazing prizes, visit here.

Here is one of the inspiration photos for the challenge:

Here is my card:

I used the colors to create another Christmas card.  I started with a card base of GKD Good As Gold and layered with shiny gold patterned paper from the Kaisercraft December 25th pad.  My gorgeous image is from Mo Manning called In The Manger.  You can find it in Mo's store here.  I love the precious face on the angel - just so beautiful!  I printed it on Cryogen White and colored with the following Copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E11
Hair: E97, Y11, Y21
Manger: E44, E43, E442, E41, E40, Y28
Straw: YR24, YR23, YR21, YR20, Y28
Wings: YR30
Blanket E53, E51, E50

I matted the image on a circle cut from gold mirror cardstock with a Spellbinders Lacey Circles die.  The sentiment is from Flourishes The First Noel set.  It is stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold detail embossing powder.  It is also matted with gold mirror CS.  I didn't add any other embellishments because I wanted the image and sentiment to take center stage.

Many thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!
