I Won! I Won the Monochromatic Challenge!

As you know, I am taking an On-line Copic class from Suzanne Dean at  We have the opportunity to participate in challenges that allow us to practice all our new skills.  The challenges are twice a month and we can post our work on our blog site after the challenge is over and the winner has been selected.  Well....... I won! I won! (Oh ya, did I tell you I am a little excited?)   I am so surprised and beyond ecstatic!  Here it is -

This little fella was colored with:
 Face and hands: Copics E000, E00 and E11
Mummy wrappings : E33,35,37,40
Background:  I  tore strips of paper
and sponged antique linen and old burlap distress ink on the strips
 I cut the mummy out and used pop dots to place the mummy on top of the  background. 
 Isn't he just cute?  I should have the sentiment read "I want My Mummy"!  Oh, I can't believe I said that!

I also posted a second entry with these cute little girls...  it didn't win but I had loads of fun doing it. Let me just say...   I have a new appreciation for how difficult it is to actually do a monochromatic card. 

Stamp "Hey Soul "Sista" Digital - Squiglefly
Background with Gina K's "Tree Silhouettes" with Memento ink -"London Fog"
Paper: Gina K "Pure Luxury" 120#
White ribbon colored with  C3 Copics and tied with Bow-Easy

I had a wonderful time cropping with my friends last night!  Kathleen made a wonderful pot of Amish Chicken Noodle Soup and I brought a loaf of crusty bread.  Melanie was celebrating a birthday this weekend so we celebrated with wonderful brownies for the occasion.  Barbara brought some almonds for our snack  so we could remain satiated while we were busy making our creations.   We worked at Kathleen's home until evening then we were off to Memories for the Making in Lodi for an evening of salad, pizza and fun cropping until 11:30.    Great food mixed with the worlds' greatest friends make for a fantastic day! 

My next posting will be tomorrow....  I will post the two cards I made yesterday....  yes, it took me all day to do two cards... LOL
