Turquoise Madelyn for Whimsical Wednesdays

I love these turquoise colours. They are the deeper coloured BG Copics, in this case, the trio recommended by PTI to coordinate with their Ocean Tides paper. I saw Jody Morrow use them on one of the Pure Innocence images from MTF and I emailed her to find out the colours because I loved them so much! In case you are wondering, this is called a tent topper card.

Please click on the photo to get a better view of the markers, especially the numbers of the BG’s since the colour doesn’t show. Hard having a mix of Ciao and Sketch! I’ll try and get it in next time. Let me know if this is useful to you. I read a comment on SCS last week that some people won’t bother revisiting a blog if the Copic colours aren’t shown! Who knew it was that important!

You will notice in my image she has no wings unlike last week when she did! I asked a very talented young friend of mine to digitally remove them, just for a change. I coloured the image first, then wondered where on earth I was going to find paper to match. A quick dive into my SU! In Colours bin and I found this paper that matched perfectly. I completely forget the name of it but I am so excited that it matched. I think the lighter colour is called Soft Sky. The DP must have been from the same In Colour Year because the green from the DP pack matches the mixed CS pack too.

The paper was cut with Eyelet Borderabilities and layered, I was pleased to find that the cutouts matched. I wasn’t expecting that; see how two of the holes in the flowers cut into the patterned paper allow you to see through the CS layer? The button is Ocean Tides and matched perfectly! I was really happy with this card in the end which is great because being sick for so long, I was starting to lose my mojo.

Funny that the name of this girl in the image is Madelyn as this week’s challenge was from Madelynn!
DDSC20 Apparently, this is a makeup set of her mom’s that she loves a ton! I have to agree with her; it is gorgeous! I took the pretty turquoise colour and the flower in the geisha’s hair as my inspiration. I was considering an Asian-themed card but I really wanted to use the image again I got FREE from Katie at Paper Makeup Stamps as she is the AWESOME Sponsor for this month! Thanks Katie! I do hope you will join us in playing this week. We’d all love to see your work. Link up to Mr Linky at Whimsical Wednesdays! Use DDSC20 if you upload to a public gallery.

Enjoy, Rebecca
