Copics Creation Challenge No. 43 “We’re Cool”

So here we are again, a couple of days have passed since I have stamped, seeing that the flu season has hit (and hit me) I am behind.  I had to come home from work on Wednesday with stomach cramps, sore throat, headaches, feeling dizzy and generally really bad.  I went to bed for the rest of the day, except for when I needed fluids and pain relievers.  I saw the challenge at Copic Creations  We’re Cool, with the challenge to use the cool colors only on a card.  I thought, what better image to use then Whiff of Joy “Cool Oakley”.  He is indeed a cool little guy isn’t he.  My son picked him out when we were at Scrappin Great Deals last week.  I had not had a chance to color him yet and this was it now.  I of course looked to some of my favorite Copic colorers (is that a work)(Suzanne) to see how to shade and highlight him and am quite pleased with how he turned out.   I tried to keep it guy like and not add any ribbon or bows this time.  What do you think of him?

So here are the embellishments:  Stampin around wheel stars punched out with Stampin up small and large star punches and one cut out by hand, on a background of elegant soiree DSP with some Spellbinders nestabilities dies in very vanilla, and marina mist.  The stars are marina mist and wild wasabi.

Next we have glitter brads, even boys need a little glitter don’t you think.  These are from Stampin Up subtle brads. 

Finally here is the little guy all alone.  He is a cutie!  Hope you all like him and it adds some interesting aspect to the Copic challenge.

Leave me some encouragement and comments, as I am learning with the Copics now and am looking to get better at it as I am not a natural artist.  I need lots of help!!!
