Triple Challenge Card

I wanted to share the card that I did for three challenges today. I used this digital freebie image from Inger Harding. I love her images.

Here is my card,



The three challenges were,

1) Copic Creations Challenge - Coloring Black with Copics. I used C5, C7 and T6 for coloring the hair black in this image. As per the tutorial you can see on Copic Creations site, the colors that Suzanne Dean uses are C5, C7 and C9. I did not have C9, so I had to substitute.

2) Copic Color Challenge - Challenge #36 was to use the Colors V17(Amethyst), YR68(Orange), G99(Olive).



3) Just Us Girls Challenge - To add a 3D flower to your project. They have a fantastic tutorial also. But I did not have the Blossoms nestabilities. So, instead I used the five petal flower punch from Paper Wishes and created my own 3d flower. Basically I punched out three flowers, edged with ink, then folded two of them and then curled the third one using a tooth pick and then put them all together with a jewelled brad.

Supplies:
Stamp - Digital Freebie Image from Inger Harding, PTI Simple Things Anniversary Set
Paper - 120 LB Pure Luxury CS from Gina K, SU DP, SU Orange CS, PTI Rustic Cream CS, Bazzill Yellow CS
Ink - Memento Black, Copics, PTI Avocado Ink, Brown chalk ink
Other - Jewelled Brad, Paper Wishes 5 Petal Flower Punch, SU Word Window Punch

Ahhh Banu this is a great flower! That touch of ink on the edges plus the curling makes them look almost real. Great idea - thanks for sharing and thanks SO much for playing along with Just Us Girls! I hope you had a great time and will join us again next Saturday for a brand new sketch challenge.
