Inspire- CMC Copic Challenge- Backgrounds

How was everyone's weekend? I had a great one. Saturday I went to Austin with a great friend Melissa to the brand new Archivers store. Oh my goodness, I had never been to one and I thought I was in crafting heaven. Melissa is also a fabulous photographer who took my new profile picture and some really pretty glamour shots of me please stop by and and check out her work at HelloMisha.
I have so much to share with you about happenings at the CMC Copic Challenge Group so let me get started. The new challenge is up and this time we want to see you create Backgrounds on your image.  Our sponsor this time is Squigglefly and I was given this adorable digi called Inspiration.  For my background I sponged my clouds with ink.  I can never get the clouds to photgraph very well, they stand out more in person.  I wanted my image to look like it was a picture hanging on the wall so I added the paper photo corners.  The paint easel and brush was something I drew with my Copic Multi Liner and finished coloring it with Copics.  I finished it up by distressing the papers.

Hair-E29, E47, E37, E35 Skin- E11, E00, E000, R20 Clothes- E43, E42, E41/YR16, YR15, YR12/BG13, BG11, BG10 Grass-G82, G40 

One of the hardest things to learn with Copics for most people is coloring hair. On August 31 Suzanne will be debuting a new online class that is  focuses 110% on all hair types, styles and colors.  The Preregistration is up now.
  Suzanne Dean is teaching her Copic class in Stafford Springs the weekend of the 22nd, it is not far from Boston area or NYC area AND she will be teaching the All About Hair Class in person as well.  You can get all the details at HERE.
Sorry this a bit long today but I hope you like my project.  See you soon and thanks for stopping by.
