Spring Wonder

Happy Wednesday to everyone! I have a few days off from work and can hardly wait to hit the art room! The challenge for coloring "feathers" with Copic Markers is still open for participation. Anyone can play along at Color Me Creative Challenge . It's a fun challenge group with 2 challenges & prizes every month to get you using those Copic skills. Come chat with us and have some fun! Click on the GROUPS tab at the top of the CMCC page and then click on the CMC Copic Challenge Group (you do not have to be a student to join us)!!

And by the way, the new Junior Design team members have been added to our Color Me Creative challenge group. Stop by and check out their bio's and blogs. They are a fabulous group!

I created a second card for this fun challenge. I named the card Spring wonder. I combined a GKD stamp with a digital stamp from Prairie Fairy Designs.
