You're a Classic

Hello again!  I'm here with another challenge over at the Color Me Creative Copic Challenge Group.  The challenge is Sepia or Black n White with a pop of color.  I'll admit that I was a bit scared when I saw this challenge.  I have never tried this before, and to be honest, I probably wouldn't have tried it had it not been for this challenge.  But being that it is a "challenge", I foraged on.  I'll tell you, the thing I love about coloring in sepia tones...I only used 4 Copics.  I don't think I've ever made a card that only used 4 Copics.  Anyway, here are your inspiration photos.

Here's my card using a digi that I got a while ago from DZ Doodles.

I printed the digi out onto Cryogen White cardstock and colored it with E71, E43, E40, and W0 Copics. The DP is from K & Co., I stitched the bottom panel, ran a ribbon across the front, and added the button and twine.

Be sure to head over to the CMC Copic Challenge for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design.  Remember that each entry is entered into a monthly drawing for a $50 gift certificate to  One play = two chances to win!  You have until Sept. 30th to enter, just be sure to use your Copics when coloring your image.  We hope to see you play along.
