Copic Creations Challenge #4 AND Copic Colour Challenge 13

I'm trying to get involved in some of the online challenges and have a few I'm working on. The first ones due are: Copic Creations Challenge #4 and Copic Colour Challenge 13. The Copic Creations Challenge was to do "blonde hair" and Copic Color Challenge was to follow a sketch of their choosing. This was both fun and challenging...but that's the point, right? I've never done blonde hair before, but I followed Suzanne Dean's video on how to do it. I didn't have all the same colors she uses, so I modified it to use the colors I do have. I think it turned out okay, but it took a few tries to get it to this point! LOL I also haven't really ever followed someone else's sketch, so this was a little odd for me...but I think I'm going to like it! ;o)

This is the inside of the card. I've seen some cards that have a very 'finished' look when the inside has a similar image and/or paper as the I went for it! Me likey!!! :o)

Materials used:

Black card - DCWV Textured Cardstock
Circles - Making Memories "Love Story" stack
Flowers - Primas
Brad Jewels - Recollections from Michaels
Image - "On The Phone" by The Sketching Stamper
Thought bubble - Plantin Schoolbook "Blurb" with YG06 Copic on the edges
Pink Checkered Paper - I have NO CLUE!!!
Border Punch - Fiskars Threading Water Punch
Phone - Lavender
Shirt - Fruit Punch
Border Punch 'holes' - Silver

Hair - Y11, E31, Y21, Y00 and E71
Skin - E50
Shirt - RV02, RV04, YG06 and G14
"Make-up" - C-3 and E00
Cell Phone - BV00, BV13 and B63
Shadow - BG10
Highlights - 0 (Colorless Blender)

Whew! That was a lot of 'stuff' to remember! LOL

...but I feel like I'm forgetting something? I dunno!!!

And here are the two 'cards' my little one made while I was making mine. Of course I did the Stickles, but she picked them out and told me where to put them! This is her in her 'princess dress' (night gown). Isn't she cute??? Yes, I'm a bit biased. ;o)
Pin It!
