Happy November to you all! Am I the only one that as we head in to the colder months I tend to want to craft more? 😀 Maybe it is something about being surrounded by lovely, shiny things while it is so grey outside. I’m super lucky though that for the next two months I will be a Guest Designer for Make it Crafty, which means more craft time!
How awesome is that?!? When I started on my Copic journey four years ago Zoe’s e-books taught me the foundation of how to use them. It took the e-books, YouTube videos and lots of color-a-longs from Some Odd Girl to get me where I am today. It really has been a great journey, so I am very honored to be a part of the Design Team for two whole months. 😀
Without further ado here is my first inspiration piece. I’m loving it!
I’ve been obsessing over the awesome backgrounds the Make it Crafty gals have been sharing on Instagram, so I thought I would try my hand at the novice version of it. 😀 Some Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick, Crushed Concord, Broken China, Faded Jeans and Black Soot were my weapons of choice. It has been awhile since I’ve played with the inks so my blending took a bit to get decent enough. I’ll be trying this again and again so I’ll hone those blending skills. 😉
Of course the background is only the back drop for the image, Bridgette in Love. She is a gorgeous gal, with long locks and a wicked awesome sweater.
Here are my Copic Marker colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R22, R20
Hair: E31, E33, E35Eyes: Y13, Y26, Y28, E59
Sweater: V01, V04, V06, V09, R81, R83, R85, R89
Hat: B95, B97, B99
I love this color combo – not so much “fall”, but more a beautiful cold, winter night color palette. 🙂
Well, I’ll be up on the Make it Crafty blog every Wednesday for the next 8 weeks, so make sure to check me out there and leave some love!
