Copic Creations Challenge - No 35

>> Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Copic Creations has 2 challenges for you every month! This round we have been sponsored by Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps! I just adore Kimmie Reid so i was super stoked to have us sponsor us in this challenge. Please stop by Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps to check out her most recent additions to her line. Then be sure to check out the Copic Creations blog to see the other talented designers cards and also enter yourself in the challenge. The winner will receive 2 Kraftin' Kimmie's stamps!!!

Our challenge for these next 2 weeks is to use shadow colors! The girls have really rocked this challenge, and while i was proud of my card... well... correction, i WAS proud of my card until i saw theirs! They really did an amazing job. I dont think i went "far enough" with the challenge to use the gray value markers for shadows. Alas, here is my card anyway!

Is this sweetie not just hilarious with her little finger up in the air, ready to poke her doll with a pin!

Now i did use the neutral gray markers both around my image and also within my image where there was an absence of light. In real life (look at photos) where there is an absence of light (take for example where a tree branch is in the way of the suns light and your face... you get a shadow. Well that shadow has GRAY VALUE. It's not just a darker color that you skin. So i wanted to use the gray colors in those areas with absent light (the top of the dolls head under her cheek/chin, under and beside the the doll on her dress, under the pockets on her dress (like they were really sticking out), on her bloomers just under her hemline, etc.

I probably could have gone even further... o maybe did more around the entire image. But i'm still pleased with how the overall look turned out.

Now take a peek at the sentiment...
This sentiment is actually NOT a kraftin' kimmie's stamp. It's one i've had forever that i picked up at AC moore to stamp on the envelopes of cards i make for people. I think its just hilarious! But it was just SO appropriate for this card and when else am i going to be able to put it ON the cardfront itself! I just HAD to take advantage!

This card made me absolutely laugh out loud, clutching my sides as tears rolled down my face. BRILLIANT sentiment to go with this stamp. Thanks for the best laugh I've had in ages!

This image is hysterical and there is no better sentiment for it! LOL!!! I love the colors you chose to fill her. Is it possible that a tiny touch of "you" is shining through? LOL!!!

I think you card is awesome! It really stood out! Hence why I clicked it and found your blog =)

I actually have a DT call right now, and I would be thrilled if you applied. I think your use of copics is amazing! You really know how to bring an image to life.
