Altered by Copic...

I love challenges. As a new stamper, I always look to others for ideas on things that will...well....be challenging so that I can become better and so my stuff doesn't look...well...dumb. LOL!

Anyway, All That Scraps blog has a color challenge this week! This is my first attempt at a color challenge. I looked through my stuff to see what I had in the colors but I found I was lacking in a few things..heh. So, I scoured around for things that I could alter the color with so that I could closely fit the challenge.

So what is altered on this card? The ribbon was white, but I colored it with a Copic marker that matched the Summer Sun SU CS. Then I colored the little rhinestones at the bottom in the same color. Finally, I just could NOT find any patterned paper that would match the paper and since I LOVE to paper piece these Glam Girls, I found a piece of DCWV scrap that I had and I got it all cut out then colored the light part of the paper in the same Copic marker to more closely match. :D

I realized after I photographed this that I didn't at all stamp on the sentiment. LOL What a dork! Just pretend you see it there, mkay? hehe

Oh, I also used my Versamark ink with my Cornish Heritage Farms paisley bg stamp...again...to make it more closely match the challenge colors.

Thanks for popping by my little blog today! Hope you're having a fantastic week.
