Spice It Up

Hi All!  I swear I must have some sort of jinx with electronics lately!  First it was my internet and then my email from my phone.  But I think I've finally got everything in working order- Knock on wood!  I'm not good at operating without all my toys :)
On to the fun stuff now!  I saw the Kenny K Krafty Girlz Challenge was 'Spice it Up' this week.  If I wanted to get completely literal here I could say I used some orange- courtesy of Paprika, some red- maybe a little Cayenne Pepper and some yellow- lets go with Curry for that one.  I don't think literal thinking was mandatory but it's definitely a way of thinking outside the box :)  I colored up Club Kid, one of my new favorites (grab it here), in my spicy colors and then used some more of the My Minds Eye Stella and Rose paper since it complemented my colors so well.  It's a pretty simple layout because I wanted my image to be center stage but I had to add a little bling in there of course!  She certainly looks like one cool- or maybe I should say hot and spicy, chick!

Here's a close up and a list of Copics used:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R32
Hair: YR00, YR02, YR07, E99 (this is a new favorite combo of mine!)
Jacket: R14, R24, R27, R29
Tie: Y23, Y26
Jeans: B32, B34, B37
Shoes: C1, C7, C9
Ground/Background: W0, W1, W3
