So here we go! I have only been using Copics for a year - - so be gentle with me! I have practiced so frequently that most of my pens need refilling! Once I saw the OWH Every Hat set, I knew I had to color this sassy lady! I researched coloring animal prints with Copics - but I was not very successful. Then I saw a commercial on TV which had a woman wearing animal print pants, and I just knew what had to be done! As I am sure many of the participants before me have said - - I used a lot of pens to color this! A LOT! This was the opportunity I have been waiting for! Somehow, coloring a sassy woman - who wears all the hats and juggles all the balls - with grace, dignity and smoking hot shoes brought out my suppressed artist! However, and I have checked, it didn't bring out the woman who likes to list colors and supplies used! **groan**sigh** First my cards - then I will force that woman to list supplies **groan**sigh!!!
Card #1 - Sporting the pink giraffe print pants and blue polka dot shoes, tool belt, and hat (drum roll).
Card #2 - Sporting blue leopard spotted pants, shoes, and hat, she is full of sparkle (covered - of course - with glossy accents) and sunshine. Her pink tool holder and sparkle handled screwdriver are a must have for any wonder woman!
While these ladies were waiting to become the center of attention on my cards, my totally awesome 12 1/2 year old nephew visited, and took an interest in coloring his original drawings with Copics. I gave him the 2 minute demo and set him free with my markers (ow!) He seemed to enjoy the experience and asked his mom to buy them for him! LOL! I did ship him a set of Prismacolor drawing pencils - which I hope he uses and enjoys. My granddaughter helped out by putting my Copics away, (because his mom was in a hurry to get home and let the pool motor person into their yard - this is coming to you from sunny and HOT Arizona). I really really really want to put them back in order!!! A bit OCD - maybe!
Okay - The ladies had the following colors used to complete her ensemble:
YG16 and 17, C1 3 5 and 7, R0000 01 24 35 46 81 83 and 85, Y11 13 15 and 19, E00 000 0000 07 09 37 and 47, B00 000 0000 and 04, and a 0.5 Multiliner. Whew! Check out their hard hats!
The lady in blue also had Silver Stickles and Glossy Accents used - - NO lose glitter on OWH cards!
Paper for the cards came from one of the following (so much for my record keeping!): Authentique Seasons: Summer, EP Note to Self, and Authentique Strong.
This has been a total blast. Thank you AI for providing these inspiring stamps, and donating to OWH. I have been sending cards to OWH for 2 years and I consider myself lucky to have found them.
