My Very First Card for icopic!!

My very first challenge as part of my new icopic DT is to color grass.  That was pretty easy to do using one of my favorite Sarah Kay stamps called Bernadette Admiring the Spring Flowers:
Here's a close up:
She was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and then colored with the Copic markers listed below:
Notice on my hair colors that E37 is one of those that is actually darker than E39 ; )
My sentiment is from SP & Company and the name of the set is Rain Boots
And last but not least is that yummy Divine Twine!! I really did have a hard time deciding what color to use! Oh yea, except for X-Press It tape!! Love this stuff!! 
I hope you will head over to the challenge blog and show off your grass techniques! I can't wait to see them. I'll be back on Wednesday with hopefully a tutorial on how I do grass. 

Hugs~

Wow Dana your card is beautiful! Thanks for letting me know last night that I'd won the challenge at iCopic, I'm so excited!!

I've also wanted to visit to tell you I downloaded your Copic color chart and love it! It took time to color it in again but I saw new color families emerge that I'd never noticed before as I colored. Thank you!
