1st Ever Competition Entry

I wanted to share my entry that I submitted to the Copic Australia Card Challenge.  The challenge was to use the colours E02, Y06 and BV06, which translate to a skin colour, a bright yellow and a lovely mauve.  This was my first ever entry into any sort of competition relating to stamping/papercrafting and it was even a bigger deal to have to use my Copics.  I have had them for nearly a year and whilst they are beautiful to work with, I have been immensly intimidated by them.

I  was really, really happy with how this turned out.  I used the requisite colours as follows:  E02 was the base colour for the orange flowers, which were given depth (I hope) with YR02 and YR04  -  I think.  I did have all the colours written down but I can't find them now.  Y06 was used in the flower centres and BV06 was the base colour for the purple flower.  I'm pretty sure that the pink flowers started with a base of RV10.  (I will update with the correct additional colours once I find where I've put the listing).  I drew the frame using my Black Stampin' Write Journaller and a ruler, the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, stamped in Memento Black, as are the flowers, which come from the SU! Fifth Avenue Floral set.  The cardstock is also from Papertrey Ink.

I was really glad that I entered -as they say, you have to be in it to win it :)

Thanks for looking - have a great night/day

Nicely done Jo. I am very intimidated by my copics too and tend not to use them often :o(
