Time for another challenge over at 
Crafting From The Heart
The sponsor for this week

I chose to work with this lovely image called
Woman with Stars in her Hair.

I'm not really comfortable with colouring but  
when I do I generally grab my Promarkers.
Today however I have used Copic pens.
I took a class  back in  Aug 2015 and now have my
Copic Basic  and Copic Advanced Certificates
so no excuse not to dust off my pens and use them!
I also used a silver gel pen along with a silver
Atyou Spica pen which twinkles like stars in her hair.
I mounted onto silver shimmer card stock die cut
using my Xcut  Rectangles dies 
Adhered onto pink shimmer card and then onto 
a dark pink card base (which is not shown ).
Flowers and ribbon from my stash.
The above photo was taken using  flash to show the shimmer
whilst the one below was using normal overhead lighting .
I also used a gem for her earing and 
a silver sentiment sticker.

The theme is Anything Goes as usual
and we would love to see you enter 
your projects .

Looks to me as though you've mastered all the skills needed to work with your copics!!! Brilliant work on her hair & especially the facial tones. Love the sparkle you've achieved with the spicas, and it looks grand with the silver mirror matting. Copic classes would be proud of you indeed! Go to the Head of the Class! TFS & Hugs.
