Copic challenge

I love colouring in with alcohol pens and I have just brought some Copic Ciao pens.  I do have the Spectrum Noir pens already but loved how Mel Heaton used the Copics on TV the other day.  I coloured an image in with both just to see how each looked.

This card is for the Copic challenge blog

I used the Copic image to make the card mainly because it looked better on the card I had already coloured with Spun Sugar distress ink.

The little girl image is from the Sugar Plum Daisy CD from Polkadoodles.  The first time I have used digi stamps but I love them and will be using them more.  I used 3D pads to fix the image to the card.  The Cheery Lynn swirl die and the Joy card stand die also came this week so used both of them as well.  The card does stand on it's own but because of the shape it is a bit wobbly so used the card stand.  I did cut the stand twice and glued both pieces together as the card was a bit heavy for just one layer.

Here is the same image coloured with Spectrum Noir pens.

I added the little flowers because one of the green pens 'pooled' ink and rather then throw it away I popped the flowers on with a little pearl in the centre of each one.  All ready for another card.
