Michelle Perkett Studios & My Coloring Book

Please excuse me for re posting my Angel of Hope card, there's a really good reason...

Remember the Michelle Perkett Studios design team call?  I was chosen as one of her design team coordinators and there's a new challenge today at the Michelle Perkett Studios challenge blog with a theme of Anything Goes!!  Since it was very short notice Michelle said we could use a card or project we'd already posted, so that's why you're seeing my angel card again. 

I hope you'll join us with the Michelle Perkett Studios Anything Goes challenge!
If you don't have any of her images there's a cute freebie at her group on Paper Craft Planet and tomorrow (8-18-10) on the OWH Stars & Stamps blog there will be a couple more free images of Michelle's because she's our featured sponsor for the Midweek Throwdown challenge!

Would you like to see my coloring book next?!

I've had the covers for this book since I went to the Copic Certification class back in April, Patty who I sat with had made one and I thought it was a great idea!  

I used the Bind It All along with Bind It All 8 X 8 covers as well as a set of plastic covers to go over it.  I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.  The image of the little boy and girl are from Bug A Boo stamps and they are two images that I merged in my Publisher program.  
Here's a peek at what the inside looks like.  I have these little scraps of paper all over that have color combination's for hair, skin, jeans, etc. and I thought this would be a fabulous way to catalog all that and be free to throw those scraps away.
Here's a close up of my Some Odd Girl Mae relaxing, not all of my colored images are on card fronts or fancy, this is more of a reference book for me.  I also printed my Copic color chart, colored in the markers I have and put it in the front of the book.  
And a close up of Kaylee with her balloons from Some Odd Girl stamps.

Don't forget about the challenge at Michelle Perkett Studios challenge blog, you have all week and there will be a prize drawing!

Jan, I love this card you made! and the sentiment is so right to go with the image!
And what great to see how your book from the copic certi training is.
We have graduations in the copic certification. I have bronze. And to get further we need to be invited by the copic firm itself.
I hope to get my invitation soon :-)
I love how you used the colors in your images in the book!
Thanks for sharing!

OMG! Your work is really fantastic. I envy your talent, and you're so organized about laying out all the colors and showing how it's done. I'm afraid even with you're great instructions mine will not look as good, but practice makes perfect. :) You're an inspiration!
