Coloring on Acetate with M4M's

Happy Wednesday!  It's my turn to show you some inspiration for our current Mad For Markers challenge, which is to color on something other than paper! I decided to color on Acetate and create some gorgeous wings for Tilda. I stamped with Black Staz On onto the acetate and colored it on the reverse side with my copic markers. Now remember Staz On is not our Copics friend and will ruin your markers if you color directly onto it! So if you want to color onto acetate, just make sure that you color on the reserve side!!! I am really happy with the effect for Tilda's wings, kind of looks like stained glass! I also colored my pearls from white to pink to match my card. I love how my Copics can color anything to match my project. No need to buy colored embellishments anymore!

Copic Colors Used

Hair - E47, E25, E50, E53 and Sand Spica
Dress - RV00, RV02, RV04
Rose - V01, V06, V09, Lavender Spica
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Butterfly Wings - RV02, BG23, V15

It's a bit hard to see in this photo, but I have sprayed the punched border with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist and Tilda's hair has the Sand Spica pen in it, so in real life it is quite glimmery!

There have been some fantastic entries into this challenge, but there is still time to get your entry in! So get coloring for your chance to win a guest DT spot and a Mad For Markers voucher valed at $16. Can't wait to see what you come up with! And don't forgot for all your copic needs head  over to the Mad For Markers Store!
