How Brave Am I?

Yes, dear Crafty Bloglanders - the time has come to have a go at the Copic Colour Challenge - and I'm feeling rather brave for doing so.  I don't know why this should be, but, as you might have gathered by now, I'm a bit of a coward when it comes to venturing out of my comfort zone.  But I've managed to do it in many ways so far this year, this one shouldn't be a worry either. 

So, without further ado, here are this week's colours:

Mmmm, now the only problem is that I haven't actually got these three colours yet - so I've used the nearest I've got, which means I used R27, Y15 and YG23, among others.  Here's the result:

Image: Mo's Digital Pencil, 'Between' (see below)

Papers: Cosmo Cricket, 'Material Girl' collection

Other: buttons and ribbon from stash.

This beautifully dreamy image was originally a Papercraft Planet group freebie, but I think Mo will be adding it to her shop, if she hasn't already done so.  The image is 'Between' because Mo describes her as neither a girl nor a teen - that strange age when everything starts to change.  I like to think she's dreaming of her favourite film star!

She was coloured with my Copics (obviously, since this is for the Copic Colour Challenge!) but I added some grounding and glow with my Prismacolors.  I love doing that, it gives a beautiful softness to the image that I find difficult to emulate with my Copics.

I was back at work today after two weeks off sick and I have to admit to being pretty pooped.  It's amazing how sitting down all day can tire a girl out!

I now need to eat chocolate and put my feet up - well, I need to gather my strength for tomorrow and I can think of no better way!

Happy crafting.
