Create a Scene Challenge at Mad for Markers

Hi Blogging Beauties,

Before I get onto my card I just wanted to appologise for being such a bad blogger lately.  I have lots of comments from lovely people that I have read, but havent published yet because I wanted to return the favour and leave you a comment too.  I hope to get to those tomorrow.  Life has been busy and everything seems to be getting left to the extreme last minute including my posts this week!  I hope to turn over a new leaf next week and get right back on top of everything.  So thanks for being patient with me.

Over at Mad for Markers the entries for Ashlee's "Create a Scene" challenge are looking amazing and so are the inspiration from the DT!  I picked a Magnolia image for my card and I have always wanted to try a cloud background.  I visited youtube and came across this great video by Annika Ryan which I watched and tried to emulate.  I didnt have the same colours as her so I used what I had.  Then I watched a tutorial by Melyssa Connolly on how to colour grass and gave that a go too.  I have included links to the videos in case you want to check them out yourself.

The Copics I have used on my card are:

Reds: R53, R46, R59
Yellows: Y15, Y17, Y38, Y02
Hair: E35, E57, E37, E31
Skin: E11, E51, E02, R20
Sky: B93, B32. BG000, C-0, C-1
Grass: YG67, G99, GY63, YG03
Warm Greys: W-1, W-3, W-5, W-7

Since the image is so large, and the focus,  I kept the rest of the card fairly simple.

I hope you can find a little bit of time to join in our challenge!
The winner will have a GD spot at Mad for Markers.
You have a week left to enter.

Thanks for stopping by,
