Kick Up Your Heels

Well, hello again and happy Monday to you! I'm back again with another challenge over at the Color Me Creative Classroom.  This time we would like to see you use your favorite Copic technique.  I took Suzanne Dean's CMC On the Road class and learned the feathering technique and I LOVED it!

I seem to be using orange quite a bit this year and thought I'd try this technique with orange & yellow.  I just love this color combination. Tiffany's Doodles is our sponsor and Tiffany was kind enough to let us each pick an image to use for this challenge and I knew the feathering technique would look great on this pretty Summer Dress.

Now remember, anyone can play along, plus the winner gets 10 digital stamps of their choice from Tiffany's Doodles.  But wait...that's not all...each CMC challenge entry will be entered into a monthly drawing for a $50 gift certificate to!  What do you think about that?  Not one, but TWO chances to win.  You have until July 22nd at 8:00 pm EST to get your entry in to the CMC Copic Challenge.  We'd love to have you play along!
