Copic Creations Challenge #5

The Copic Creations challenge team had a new challenge issued last Monday, and with all the plates I've had juggling in the air lately, I just never got around to posting my sample card for the challenge. The challenge was to color something clear or transparent with your Copics. You can find all the details at the Copic Creations Challenge blog, along with an introduction of our two new team members, Rachel Jakes and Cheryl Rowley! They're both amazing designers, so be sure to check out their work along with the rest of the team members. I'll give you links to their blogs below.

That nice lady that owns Gina K Designs... what's her name? Oh yeah, Gina K! LOL She generously donated a stamp set and some of her fabulous Pure Luxury cardstock to the team members to use for this challenge, and so you'll see my card here using the Friendship Blooms stamp set. While I like how this card turned out, I'm not happy with my interpretation of the transparency of the glass pitcher. I finally figured out several days after I had this card done that I needed to add a muted green to the pitcher to give the illusion of the background color showing through the glass! DUH! Rather than risk ruining the card by trying to "fix" it though, please just use your imagination and pretend it's fabulous, OK?


We'd love it if you decide to give this challenge a try! Just pull out your Copics and find a stamp depicting something clear or transparent. Leave a direct link to your creation on the Mr. Linky at the Copic Creations blog so we can see your work, too!

Check out these designs from the other team members for inspiration!
