A New Challenge at Copic Creations! White Clothing!

Hey, everybody!  Welcome to July!  Is it just me or is this year zooming along really fast?  One minute I'm watching 'em countdown the dropping of the ball in Times Square on TV (yes, we are that boring) and the next we're whipping out the red, white, and blue, and cranking up the BBQ grills (yes, we have more than one).  We are literally half-way through the year.  At this rate, Christmas will be peeking around the corner at me, with it's blood-shot eyes (my version of Christmas is exhausted!) waiting to get some attention.  UGH!  Why do I already feel like I'm behind?  

Well, now that I've thoroughly depressed everyone...LOL...let's move on to the new challenge at Copic Creations.  This week's sponsor is La La land Crafts and they are near and dear to my heart ;D  For this week's challenge we are asking that you use your Copics to create a white piece of clothing.  

I love creating the illusion of white.  If you leave an item devoid of color, it just looks flat, but the addition of gray to mimic shadows, and the addition of a very pale color to capture light really gives white objects dimension and life.  For my card I colored Jesalyn and opted to leave her dress and shoes white.  I added C3, C1, and C0 to give areas of her dress shadows and I added BG10 to add glints of light.  The BG10 gets lost in the photos, but trust me, it's there.  I hope you'll join the challenge this week at Copic Creations and show us what you can do with white.  

Please swing by the blog and check out what the DT has been up to.  They have really worked their magic with this challenge and the cards are AMAZING!  You won't want to miss them ;D 

Join me tomorrow and I'll share another Bombshell mermaid card with you.  Until then, stay crafty!

  3. Absolutely stunning! I love the hints of blue.

  4. Love the card! For me this year flew by until May and now it feels like time is in slow motion. But that's just because I'm pregnant, due in August and have had complications! I need it to just be August NOW! But My oldest baby is turning 10 this month and I turn 29 on the 4th, along with a whole bunch of other birthdays, so it'll probably wind up flying by quickly and yes then next thing we know it'll be Christmas! Which won't bother me because Christmas is my favorite!

  5. Love all your designs. She favors you alot. lol. TFs
