Mad For Markers Colouring Embellishments Challenge... Tennis Anyone?

It's my turn to post on the Mad For Markers Challenge Blog today for the current challenge, COLOURING EMBELLISHMENTS WITH COPICS.

On this card I have used the digital image Anya Tennis from The Greeting Farm and have used my copic markers to colour in the sparkly flower. I have also distressed the edges of the patterned paper and then edged the paper using the chisel tip of my V15 marker.

Colour your flowers, pearls, rhinestones, metal charms, chipboard etc, pop them on your creation and link up your blog post at the Mad for Markers Challenge blog.
Copics Used:
Hair: E55, E57, E59, E79
Skin: E50, E51, R20
Clothes: V12, V15, V17, R21, R23

Working full time and card making - no wonder you are exhausted. Not to mention all the other 'unpaid' jobs we all have. If we could just get a break from washing cleaning and cooking there would be more time to spend cardmak ... I mean, spend with the children. (he he) Very cute card. Fabulous Copic colouring. Hugs Jenny B x

Hi Susan, sometimes I am very computer challenged, so I thought that I would ask for help if you dont mind. How do you make a separate Challenge blog list from your My blog list? I can always google "blogging for dummies" if it is too tricky to explain. My daughter just walked past the computer and exclaimed "How cute!" at your card. I would take that as a huge compliment cause she is... 15!!! hugs jenny

Hi Susan, this is such a lovely card. I'd like to say a huge thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting on my entry to the Mad For Markers coloured embellishments challenge. I really appreciate your advice on the skin colouring too. I'm off to the class tomorrow morning so I'm all set for soon churning out some stunning work! LOL well passable at least.
