Operation Write Home Monochromatic Challenge


I've been waiting to post my card today for a package of new Copic markers to arrive.  Waiting isn't easy in the age of instant everything...  the markers didn't show up but I did find out where they are so hopefully next week I'll have some new colors to play with.  

I've been toying with the idea of non traditional hair colors and finally took the plunge for the Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown Monochromatic challenge.  This is a Hannah Lynn mermaid that I cut out, she has sea turtles around her and I though purple turtles would look funny.  She's colored with Copic markers BV17, BV13, BV11, BV0000, BV00, BV01, BV02, E0000, E000, E00, Y19, Y15, Y13.   My layout is from the "I Need A Sketch" blog, she's so big I couldn't use the complete sketch so I improvised a little.  I added a punched photo corner with pearls to dress my card up too.  The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink stamp set and the cardstock colors are Sorbet Grape, Discount Cardstock's Cobalt & Neenah Solar White.

Have a blessed Easter weekend!

A fun card also with the non-tradional hair color. Since I teach at a high school, the color doesn't seem that non-tradional to me....haha...I see a lot of odd things at school...haha was getting ready to get a few more copics myself. I love your new bugaboo rain challenge card and really enjoying your copic coloring book. I wish I knew where you got some of the images. The one with the little boy sitting on the ground and the flower showering water is precious.
