Good evening. This is my first entry for the Copic Colour Challenge. I haven't got the exact colours for the challenge which are B14, R27 and Y08, so I've chosen the nearest that I have which are B24, R29 and Y06. These colours are lovely and bright, so this card is brighter than I normally make but, saying that, I really like these colours together.

The stamp is "Country Garden" from Funky Kits. The DP is Basic Grey "Cupcake" and the cardstock is Die Cuts with a View. I coloured an orange Prima flower with the red R29 copic - that's one of the things I love about these pens - they colour almost anything! I've used a Fiskars Scalloped lace punch and a Clare Curd Signature Range sentiment. The charm is from a pack of 6 charms that I bought from our new local pound shop.

I hope you are all having a good week so far, thank you for stopping by and looking at my card.

ps - does anyone know where I can get hold of some Memento Tuxedo Black ink? I've searched high and low but can't find anywhere that has this in stock in the UK - I'm using a dark blue at the moment which is ok for some images and not so good for others.

Your card is beautiful and you did a great job choosing alternate colors. I have had to do that myself.

Absolutely gorgeous Clare, beautifully coloured in too.

Black MementoInk is currently out of stock with suppliers, we are having problems getting it at the mo. Pain in the neck I know but looks like it's a universal problem.

Lovely card and well done on improvising with the colours ... they work really well together.


PS: Sorry can't help with the ink pad.

Beautiful card Clare and love your use of the Cupcake papers. Memento ink no joy I'm afraid, but if you want ink to use with Copics try Impress (Hobbycraft have it).
Thank you for joining us in the Copic Colour Challenge.
