Pink with Mad For Markers

Hi There fellow Copic lovers! I have some not so Pink inspiration for you! The reason behind my not so pink inspiration is my 15 month old little boy! I did have a very nice Pink colored card to share with you, but I left it on desk last night so that I could photograph it today and of course one of the first things my little man did this morning was climb onto my desk and get my copics out and start coloring! I think I may have another copic lover in the family...hehe! So needless to say he wrecked my card and I have had to go with another card that I had just about finished, which happen to have little bit of pink on it. So I am sorry for the lack of Pink and will make sure next week I will have a lot more Pink! So the moral of the story is, NEVER leave your card on your desk when little people  can get to it. You live and learn...hehe!

Copic Colors Used:
WS Jeremy
Jeans - BG78, BG75, BG72
Shirt - E55, E53, E51, E50

Mad For Markers Pink Challenge!

Ok I have to say that I am loving our current Mad For Markers Challenge. Who wouldn't love to color using their Pink Copics, it only happens to be my all time favourite color. Maybe that's why I chose this challenge...hehe! So if you are a pink Copic lover as well, why not get coloring and enter our Coloring Pink Challenge!

I have colored up Tilda for my Pink Combinations tutorial that I showed you last week, so I thought it was time for her to get a home on a card! I got this gorgeous Magnolia castle recently from the Lovely Tracey and I couldn't resist coloring up a very Pink Castle, and of course I had to get my air brush out to do the background. You can't really see it in this photo, but the whole castle picture has a lovely glimmer to it as I added some Dazzling Diamonds glimmer mist to it.

Hair - E47, E53, E51,

Pink Copic Color Combinations

Happy Friday Everyone! Now if you didn't know already, my absolute favourite color is PINK, so I tend to reach for my Pink Copics more than any other color. Then I got thinking about all the different Pink combinations there are and I thought I would show you a few different ones. Now I know that there are more than I am going to show you and if you have a different combination that you use, then I would love to know what it is so that I can try it out!

So below I have created a few samples to show you:

Thursday's Hair Colored with:
RV09, RV06, RV04, RV02

  Mermaid Anya's Hair Colored with:
R81, R83, R85, 0

Tilda's Jumpsuit colored in:
R11, R000, E04

Pinto Pony's Hair colored in:

Pinto Pony's Ribbon colored in :

So there you have a few different Pink color combinations that you can use with your Copics. Hope they inspire you to use a different Pink combination than you would normally use or if you don't tend to reach for the Pink Copics, maybe this will inspire you to give them a go. You can't go past a good Pink colored image...hehe!

Don't forget that Tomorrow is your last day to enter into Mad For Markers Coloring White competition! Next week we will have a new challenge for you!

For all your Pink Copic needs and any other color you might fancy, pop over to the Mad For Markers store where Sammi will fix you up!

Mad for Markers Meets lots of other challenges!

I was so excited when I recieved my new TGF Tuesday stamp on Tuesday...hehe! So of course I stamped her up straight away and got coloring! I have loved what the Amazing Randi has been doing with her hair do's lately and decided that I had to have a go and well if I do say so myself I was very pleased with how her hair turned out! My next new toy to play with was my Copic Airbrush, which I got last week for my birthday from my gorgeous Hubby and my lovely children, which also came with an air compressor. So no running out of air for me! Well I have to say that I finally got a chance to play with it yesterday and well.....I am in love....hehe! I airbrushed the pink background behind Tuesday, as well as my green flower and the green border around my sentiment! I just know I am going to have a lot of fun airbrushing. So I hope you like my card!
