Color Me Creative–Gold, cream and white

Hi there

Color Me Creative is running their latest challenge which is Gold, Cream and White.  I’ve been eyeing up the Some Odd Girl digital images for a while now and finally downloaded one to use for this challenge.  They are FAB to colour.

CMC 1211-1
I made this card for somebody that is very special to me (sorry can’t say who in case they’re reading my blog!)  This person is a Mum that doesn’t realise the amazing things she’s achieving while juggling all of the responsibilities and jobs that go hand in hand with being a parent and partner.  She really should be very proud of herself, she’s set herself many goals and is just ticking her way through that list, not letting anything get in her way.  I’m really proud of her and I’m hoping this little card will remind her that you can wish big and that your dreams really can come true when you follow them. Our challenge is ‘Holiday Joy’ in the colours of Golds, Creams and Whites, so this could equally be used as a Christmas card where you’re wishing big for that special something on your list.

What do the words ‘Holiday Joy’ mean to you?  They mean love, happiness and peace at this most wonderful time of year.  Time to appreciate our family and friends.
So more about our challenge…

Show your holiday joy with sparkling colors of GOLD, CREAM & WHITE!

(yes you can use some other colors like hair/skin/etc but the majority of colors should be Gold, Cream &  Whites) 
We want to see you use YOUR COPICS, COPIC REFILLS OR COPIC AIRBRUSH SYSTEM (Or ProMarkers if you have them) 

Use Inspiration Pictures Below as well!


-Use any image you want BUT MAKE SURE YOU LINK BACK TO THE CMC CHALLENGE in your blog post!!
-Image MUST be colored with Copics or ProMarkers or Colored Pencils!

I found the cream a bit of a challenge but on looking at one of the videos I used some of the earthier tones.  I think my cream has ended up a bit dark (her hair).  As you all know I often use darker colours for hair but it was actually really nice to try a lighter colour on hair.  I think my favourite colouring technique in Copics is changing, I LOVE the way you can achieve gold using so many different colours, in this case I used Y00, Y11, Y15, YR23, YR24.

Don’t forget we also have some super exciting news….
Suzanne has now written a Class 5 Copic class, this class takes colouring up to a whole new level, you should see what’s in it!  It’s sooo fab, I can’t wait to get to that standard of colouring. 

If you grab it now it’s at the holiday special price of $60.

Pop on over and visit the other girls’ blogs and don’t forget to visit our Guest Designer’s blog too.

We have FANTASTIC prizes up for grabs, including a Kindle!  Plus we are also sponsoring a charity, Reading is Fundamental so you have the chance to donate to a very worthwhile cause.  This challenge runs for a month until 5th Jan so you have loads of time to play along.
