Fancy Marci

Remember the skin tone step-by-step guide I did a couple days ago using a La-La Land Craft image?  We’ll, as promised I finally put her on a card and wanted to share it with you this weekend.  To see the tutorial just click HERE and that even shows all the Copic colors I used on this sweetie.   Check out my finished project which is both perfect for Valentines and spring…

Isn’t she just adorable!  The images I used are Fancy Marci from La-La Land Crafts and That’s the Ticket stamp and punch from Stampin’ Up! The dragonfly chipboard embellishments are from Make it Crafty in a set called Dragonflies (of course!  LOL).

For the hexagon aspect, I used a beehive stencil and sprayed Iridescent Spray & Sparkle over the background.  (Thank you Ruby!!)  The light reflects on it and really adds an interesting element.  I’ve also colored the chipboard dragonflies and covered the wings with pink Stickles.

  
QUESTION: Some of you may be wondering if coloring Marci with a facial personality is allowed – and the ANSWER is: YES of course!!  The terms of use state no altering of the image so I’ve deliberately left the line art alone and printed the image the way it downloaded – nothing was change.  Now I can safely color using only Copic markers and some “mad coloring skills.”  Also check the other awesome examples on the La-La Land Crafts Blog that show fantastic ways to use your coloring!  Such as plaids, fuzzy texture, camouflage, hair strands and fabric folds – there so much you can do with your Copics and that’s what makes them so fun!!

I’d like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #38 – Anything with Ribbon
Copic Marker Europe – Anything with Copic
Make it Monday Linking #126 – Anything Goes
Oozak Challenge #11 – Anything Goes with Favorite Color (Pink/Brown)
Stamp and Create February Challenge – Spring

Update: I was a chosen winner for this project at 7 Kids College Fund!

  3. That combo makes for a nice darker brown. I may have to try this!! I recently gave up Copic blush on brown. For me, it works if I color the blush before the browns go down; otherwise, I'm using a colored pencil! 😀
