A Tickled Pink Birthday

Hi All!  It is soooo past my bedtime but I desperately wanted to enter iCopic's challenge for coloring blonde hair.  You see, when I first started using Copics blonde hair was the one thing I thought I'd never get- the lovely and helpful ladies at my local scrapbooking store can attest to this as I was always asking for tips on what colors to use.  And I can still remember the first time I got done coloring and wasn't embarrassed by how the blonde hair had turned out.  Now I can honestly say it's one of my favorite hair colors to do!  I have my standby colors that I turn to repeatedly- E50, 51, 53 & 55 because they make a pretty blonde without being too yellow.  I'm sure as more time goes by I'll find other color combinations that I like as well but for now I'm just glad that I don't have to feel a panic attack coming on when I see a stamped image that just screams at me to be blonde :)
Here's a close up of my image-'30's Lylah from Tickled Pink Stamps and my Copic List:
Face: E000, E00, E11, R20, R14, R17, V17, V20, V25, BV25
Hair: E50, E51, E53, E55
Clothes: BG10, BG72, BG78, T1, T3, T5

Oh Katie, this is AMAZING! Gorgeous colouring - your blending is perfect!!! I always over blend and then the ink dries up and goes blotchy!

See you again soon honey!
