Hip Hip Horray!

As you all know by now, I adore the Vival La Verve sketch with a twist challenge. After getting all of the August release, I "need" to have more. So, I am going to try and win them LOL! The twist with this one was to use your favorite color combo. I must admit my favorite changes numberous times and usually depends on what dsp I am in love with at the moment.

This week I did SPCCs color combo of green, brown and white. I had a lot of fun with it, so I did it again LOL! Here is the sketch
My take on the challenge
Isn't this kangaroo fabulous!!! I adore her. I haven't really used my copics much and I am taking a class in September to learn more, but I decided I should have some idea before the class so I have been playing around. I have the first two boxes and the additional colors really helped. I love her little pink cheeks as well.
Do you see the new Papertrey Ink polka dots basics 2 set in the background? It is a new one I just got. I am not sure I love it, but I know I will in a few weeks LOL! This card is going to my Sister in law. She is pregnant and so excited, so I wanted to drop her a line.
It's a good life!

Oooh, this card is great! I love that kangaroo and the coloring looks great now, so can't wait to see how you're doing after the copics class.

Danielle said...

Copic classes? COOL! Where are you taking them?
Your coloring work looks perfect!! It doesn't seem you need a class!!
Glad you decided to visit us twice at SPCC this week!!

Terri, your card is such fun! I would love to say "KEEP USING THOSE COPICS!" You do such a lovely job! Can't wait to see what you'll do "post formal Copic education!" Great job, darlin'!
