Color Me Copic's 1st Challenge!!

Good Monday morning friends!  For those of you wondering we has a wonderful week in Pigeon Forge!  The girls didn't want to come home (however I was ready to get back to my own bed). 

Here's a wonderful pic of Anthony and the girls in front of the MagiQuest Castle.  Which by the way is one of the funnest things we have ever done.  How can you go wrong with magic wands and adventure quest that range from easy to really really hard?!?!  I also just found out there is a MagiQuest at the Great Wolf Lodge in Mason Ohio (Anthony and I have been talking about going). 


Okay on to why you are here!  My extremely talented bestie Rachel and some other very very talented ladies started a blog Color Me Copic about a month ago.  If you haven't been there, go now!  Its mainly an informational and tutorial blog with tons of helpful hints.  Rach did a fantastic tutorial on coloring images black and while and issued a challenge to use the method. Te best part is that The Greeting Farm has donated the prize!!!!!!  Since Rach is my number one cheerleader and a fabulous friend I had to try my hand at it.  I'm happy I did! 

I had to add a touch of color since I bought the DCWV Black Currant stack (its so fabulous!!) at JA's the moment I saw it. I've been waiting for it since I saw a sneak peek of it.  I also used the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #59 and turned it on its side.

Stamp: Sweet November Stamps Fathom Calmsea
Paper: DCWV Black Currant
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Pearls: Martha Stewart
Button: Fancy Pants Designs
Flowers: Prima.

Have a wonderful Monday!!!
