Crafts and Me Challenge

Hi all!! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. We've had a very hectic week so I was really looking forward to getting some coloring done. It helps me to relax and concentrate on nothing else but the next brush stroke ; )
I just got some new colors and I had a lot of fun trying out some new (new for me anyways) colors!
The new colors I tried are the darks for her hair and the pinks. 
I was inspired to try these new pinks after seeing Bev Rochester's coloring tutorial last week.  I've modified my blends slightly from hers mainly because I don't use any additional prismas like she does. Here's a close up:
The image is from Crafts and Me and is called May Digital Stamp.
Heres swatches of the copic colors I used:
I used Y21 to color my seam binding. I just colored directly on it with my chisel tip. I did end up spritzing it with some colorless blender and adding a few drops of Y21 reinker.  My new pinks I used on her dress are RV32, RV11 and blended those with two I already had R81 and R85.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

I usually don't miss Copics ... but everytime I visit your blog I wish I had some (not that I think I could ever be able to color as perfect as you do.. but your gorgeous cards always makes me so desperately wanting to just TRY them)

Wishing you a wonderful week, hunny
