Mad For Markers ATC Challenge

We have a new challenge over at Mad For Markers this week. It is to create an ATC and then send it in to be part of our swap! How much fun will that be! So get creating and send in your ATC to be a part of it!
Now I have to admit that this was my very first ATC and I did struggle a little with it at first. I am so used to making a 6x6 card that a tiny 3.5x2.5 ATC had me stumped! But I got there in the end and I am happy with the result. Now I have to say a big thank-you to the lovely Sammi who stamped off these Tilda images for me, so thank-you Sammi!

Copic Colors Used
Skin - E11, E000, E00, R20
Blonde Hair - E53, E51, E50
Brown Hair - E47, E50, E51, E53, E55
Clothes - RV09, RV06, RV04, RV02
B97, B95, B93, B91

Both images were colored with Copics, of course, and colored on Xpress it blending card. For all your copic needs make sure to pop past the Mad For Markers Store!

Hope everyone has a Fantastic Wednesday as it doesn't look like it is going to be a nice one here in Melbourne! Might be a good day to create!

Oh before I go I wanted to wish my very good friend Annette a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope you have a great day Annette!

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!

ETA - I forgot to say a big thank-you to the lovely Sammi who stamped off this gorgeous Tilda for me!!
