Color challenge with Copictopia and a stair step card

I wanted to share the card I made for this week's color challenge with Copictopia!  I have been wanting to try making a stair step card, and I got to do it this week!!  It felt like I was making a mini-panoramic scene.... here is my card using this colors:


Here is a close-up of my card:

Yep, your eyes aren't deceiving you - I colored my little dog with the pink Copic colors!  I did use a gray color for shading...


I got this digital image from Copictopia.com too - it was FREE!  Digital stamps are great because you can resize them to fit your need, so I made this cute dog so he could happily run through the grass and trees, like my furbabies do!  I always have to laugh at them when they find some great odor in the grass and roll in it on their backs for like 10 minutes LOL.  As long as it isn't skunk smell or some other awful smell....one time when Inu was a puppy she thought rolling in cat doodoo was a smell we would appreciate....NOT.   Check out the free digital stamps here:  http://copictopia.com/digital-stamps/

 The "steps" of the card definitely make it dimensional!

 Copic colors #E37, RV66, RV55, G14, V17 and R29; some retired Stampin' Up items

 I used white baker's twine but colored it with the purple Copic pen - did you know you can do that??  I made a cute bow for my card!


You could see what other goodies are on the Copictopia website - a blog, a new card sketch design, free money card lion tutorial...and submit your card!

A prima paper doll card tag - she has a poodle!



 I was in a Prima doll tag swap recently and remembered to take pictures of it before it got mailed out!  I used the Betty girl but changed her hair and used the Olive hairstyle. 

My most favorite metallic color is copper, so I used that color along with pink, melon, and strawberry - yummy!  There are slight variations on each girl, such as facing right or left, background, arrangement of flowers.

 For each one I used a fabric flower at the top and  in the hair that I dabbed in melon ink and a lace flower applique at the bottom that was dabbed with copper ink.

 I also used copper paper, brads, glitter glue, thin copper ribbon, copper washi tape, and ruffled trim on the side and skirt.

 Here are a few closeups of my Prima girls with their pink poodles!

 Some of the supplies I used were retired Stampin' Up...




 The girls even have a copper sparkle on their leggings!  Yep, I love dolls and definitely have the Prima paper doll fever lol!

Introducing Copictopia card sketch design #2 - free digital stamps




http://copictopia.com/

I wanted to share news of a new digital stamps company that is perfect for those of you who like to color, especially with Copic or other alcohol ink markers!  You can get free digital stamps too!!  I got the little monster shown here to use with the card sketch #CASC22.

Here is the card I made - 


I colored the little furry tribble with legs with the color inspiration (yeah, I was a Star Trek fan!):

 I just got a punch with stars, as well as a star framelits, so I had some fun with them!


Here are the copics colors I used on my card:



In this picture you can see I used a dark blue paper that has a nice sheen to it, as well as a blue pen with shine, and the clear Spica glitter pen.
