skin: YR00, E00, R20 and R22 for cheeks and eyelids
hair: E31, Y35, Y21, Y15, Y11
skirt: G28, G24, G21
flowers: YR18, YR16, YR15
I stamped the image a second time and colored the flowers, cut them out and popped them up on some dimensionals. To help tie in the image more, I used the background paper to paper piece her bikini top.
Thank so much for stopping by, have a great day! :)
First, I made an Easter card using an image I had colored a while ago. This is from La-La Land Crafts, called Marci With Bunny. In a previous post, I showed how I colored her hair. You can watch my video by clicking here!
- Hair: Y000, Y00, Y21, Y23
- Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E01
- Clothing: YR00, YR12, YR14, G40, G43, R81, R83, and R85
Here is a close up of my coloring.
Next, I made a cute little spring scene with the Sitting Lovely stamp set from The Greeting Farm. This set contained this adorable sitting Anya and the flower stamp I used for the flowery hillside.
Mix n Match Sentiments: Occasions stamp set from SP & Company. The three words are separate stamps in the set so you can arrange the words in this set any way you like.
Here is a close-up of my coloring:
My next card features a new Wild Rose Studio stamp, called Annabelle in the Meadow.
Annabelle's Meadow. I drew my color scheme from these patterned papers that I used on my project.
I used the following Copic colors:
E00, E21 (for the skin), E15 (for the hair), E57, E59 (for the dog)
Y23, Y26 (for the hat and apron), Y13 (for the birds)
YG61 (for the greenery), B00 (for the flowers)
RV10, RV11, RV13 (all for the outfit and pink flowers)
Spica Glitter Pens #2 and #6
I also added some ribbon & a cute button & twine from the Trendsetters Buttons & Twine set from Webster's Pages. The button is a cardboard adhesive backed button. So easy to work with because it just stuck right to the ribbon.
Here is a closer look at my coloring:
Have a great day! Marie will be back tomorrow with something amazing to share!!
TIP #1 - You don't need to use an image on your card....I went with a simple Magnolia image called Baby Shower.
TIP #2 - Use elements from your designer paper to embellish your card. The designer paper on this card is from My Mind's Eye Be Amazing Collection.
TIP #3 - Save bits and pieces from your everyday life, you never know how you can use them to embellish a project. My bits on this card?! The funky little bows! It was thread that came off of a skirt that shouldn't have! Rather than pitch it, I stashed it and I used it! SCORE!
TIP #4 - Think about using your embellishments in ways other than the obvious. On this card I used Prima Marketing's Wood Buttons. The heart, the way it was meant to be, and the circle I flipped over and used the back to add a totally different feel to the element.

Please remember these are COPIC coloring challenges so you must use your Copics :)
The Challenge: Yellow Green Family
Yellow Greens! These Copic colors are often overlooked but what better colors are there than these fabulous SPRINGY colors in the YG family!? Pull out your YG Copics and color something for your next project!
To join this week's challenge just add a direct link to your challenge project below. Projects are due on Sunday, April 1st at noon PST. A winner will be chosen at random to receive this week's prize. The winner and top 3 picks be showcased right here on the iCopic blog Sunday evening! We will also announce our weekly commenting winner too (chosen at random from all the comments left on the blog this week, so be sure to leave us some love)!
We're adding a NEW RULE, because we want our challenges to be for iCopic customers and loyal fans . All challenge projects must be newly created JUST for the iCopic Challenge (if your post title or first couple of sentences is promoting a different challenge, then your project probably wasn't created just for us!). You may enter your project into additional challenges, but excessive challenge pile-ons (more than 7-8 additional challenges) will be removed and not eligible for our prize or top 3.
This week's prize is a special $15 gift voucher!
HERE! I also added some beautiful Twine that's also available at iCopic!
Now, it is your turn! Show us what you can do with the YG Family Copics. Add a direct link to your project below:

Thanks for stopping by! We will have another spotlight in two weeks so keep uploading and sharing your projects on the iCopic Facebook page! We might just spotlight you!
The main image and sentiment come as a set which I love. There are lots of tiny details on this image, but it's drawn a little whimsically so I don't think your coloring has to be perfectly inside the lines. Mine definitely isn't as you can see. :)
The Copics I used were:
B000, B21, B23, B24, B26, B32
C1, C3, C5
E000, E00, E21, E23, E25, E27, E31, E51
G20, G21, G24, G28
R20, R22, R29
Y11, Y13, Y23, Y35
All the patterned paper I used is from the Echo Park - This & That Graceful 6x6 Paper Pad. I love Echo Park papers, you should definitely check them out HERE!
I sponged all the white edges with a little light brown ink to help soften the brightness so it went better with the patterned paper pad. To finish it off I added a few rolled rosettes on the bottom right.
Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day! :)
Today, I am going to share THREE cards in the same post, because I want to show you three examples of how to use the same stamped image! Generally, there are three "looks" you can achieve with a lined image stamp, when you are making that image stamp the focal point of your project. With our Copic coloring projects, it is great to have options for making your images more versatile.
On all my cards today, I used the spunky Creeper Crew Madden from The Greeting Farm. I just love her spunky, rocker attitude!! I had a lot of fun making these cards and it brought out my inner punk rocker, lol.
