JustRite Apple Orchard: Copic Creations Challenge 10


As I work on my coloring "skills" (a debatable term!) with my tiny stash of Copics, the current challenge at Copic Creations is to use Reds/Pinks. I have much to learn & reds are the most difficult colors I've yet tried, but the only chance at becoming better is to practice. We all have to begin @ the beginning, huh?!!! Again, my lack of Kindergarten and art classes notwithstanding, I do find coloring to be very enjoyable & relaxing! I used JustRite's Autumn Blessings basket of apples and a new favorite layout I first discovered on the fabulously talented Jak's blog here! So if I'm brave enough to post my beginning ventures into Copic coloring, why don't you also & maybe you'll be the lucky winner of the fabulous prize they're offering in this challenge! I know I'm hoping to win as I'll either improve or at the very least, have fun trying!!!
Paper: PTI's White CS; Basic Grey's Mellow DPs
Stamp: JustRite Autumn Blessing; PTI's Everyday Classics
Ink: Memento's Rich Cocoa & Lady Bug
Embellishments: Ribbon (source unknown); Burgundy Stickles
Tools: Fiskars Upper Crest Punch; Spellbinders Wizard & Circle Nesties
Finished Card: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
