A Little Copic Love

Hi All!  Well, it's been a bit since I've been able to post and to say that I've been busy would be somewhat of an understatement :)  But one big, and thankfully successful, baby shower done and all I can say is Whew!  It's so much fun to help take part in something so special but it can definitely take a lot of time too.  So when that was done I thought I deserved some time to sit and color and couldn't wait to play with my Copics and my new Saturated Canary image called Copica.  I have to say one of the reasons I love Krista's images so much is that they are just so much fun to color!  I've been trying to really push my coloring to the next level so I tried giving the image more facial features like a defined nose, it's a little hard to see in the photo's but I'm actually pretty happy with how it turned out- you'll have to let me know what you think- should I keep trying?  I paired my image with some bright and fun design paper and cardstock border stickers from Little Yellow Bicycle...I liked the stickers because they kind of look like washi tape.  I went for bright and pretty and as a bonus got to use a cute little crochet flower that a coworker made for me (since you definitely won't see me adding that to my craft repertoire any time soon, lol).  Anyways, I hope you all are having a great week so far and that you enjoy my little piece of sunny Copic love!

This is sooo cute! I she holding a Copic?! I like the defined nose, it makes the image more 3 dimensional.

Wow Katie! I saw this on Unique Crafters Challenge blog where you're featured on Friday Spotlight. I think her nose is perfect. It's very subtle which makes it look so real. I'm so glad I got to come over and see some of your work!
