My calendar tells me its now Fall. however the sweltering heat here in sunny Florida says otherwise. The kids and I tried to play outside for a bit yesterday, but with temps being 98+ we decided to just eat popsicles and jump in the pool instead. I cannot wait for some cooler weather to come along.
My calendar also tells me that it's time for another Copic Creations Challenge and this time the challenge is Saturated Colors. Color saturation refers to how vivid and intense a color is...easy peasy for me since I'm so heavy handed with my Copic coloring. :)
This sweet image, Beary Big Hugs is from our fabulous sponsor Belles 'n Whistles. I've used DP from Cosmo Cricket (Odds & Ends) which has lots of machine stitched on all of the paper panels. The lace was a gift from my sweet friend Chris, which I've been hoarding for a while now. (We all do that right?!?!) The pearls were colored with my BG18 Copic to match the cardstock and a touch of Shimmerz (Pixie Dust) was added to her headband and bow with a small paintbrush.
The sentiment was computer generated using Garton Font, which I then cut out with Spellbinders Label Eight. Broken China distressing ink was applied while the sentiment was still in the die with a stippling brush rather than a sponge dauber. I could never really get the hang of sponging and have ruined many images/sentiments. I had given up altogether when Shannon introduced me to using a brush instead!! What a huge difference, I've found that the brush gives me better control of the ink coverage.
