Week 4: No Copic Coloring

Have you seen the Lawn Fawn blog recently?  Kelly Marie featured my card that I made for my alphabet sticker self challenge on this post here.  I was grinning ear to ear when I saw that pop up over there!  There's also a Valentine's card drive for children's hospitals going on.  You can get the info from that post if you're interested in sending cards out to the kids.

Yesterday, I posted this card that I made using my Prismacolors instead of my Copics.  Today, I stepped away from the pencils and picked up some of the Smooch colors I have to create this non-traditional Valentine's card:

I used the sketch from the Young Crafter's Unite Challenge and the CAS-ual Friday Challenge (they sketches are very close to each other!).  I used the color palette that is out there this week at the Play Date Cafe (plum, pear, and moldy cheese).  

I stamped Hero Arts' Blooming Heart and colored it in with three colors of Smooch - Plum Berry, Ocean Soul, and Olive Twist.  The olive twist was a little darker than the papers I had picked out so I added some pops of green with Zing's Leaf Embossing Powder and a Zig emboss Writer.  

Next week, I may bring back the Copics (my, how I miss them!), but I will also be using ribbon.  Ribbon is my challenge for week 5.

Have a great week!
