I decided to make my Glitterbee's Challenge card tonight as well, so needed to incorporate a color challenge- Positively Pink, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery. I added in a Sketch Challenge from Crazy 4 Challenges as well...... I colored the Digi Image from D2D in with Copic markers RV23, RV25, W1, C2, C3, B21, B23, E31, E33.
I used a Glue Pen and added SU Dazzling Diamonds to the whipped Cream. The DSP is from SU, and the ribbon is from Target $1.00 Spot from last year. I used the SU oval and scallop oval punch for the sentiment plus dimensionals. For a final touch, I pierced the top edges.
Challenges for this card:
Crazy 4 Challenges-Sketch
Corrosive Challenge-Let's go Digi
Polka Doodles-Love, Valentines.etc
Bee Crafty-fav color combo and a digital image

For the whipped cream on this card- I tried something brand new to me- Liquid Applique in a Vanilla color to add texture. For three textures of Cuttlebug Highlights, the piercing and the Liquid Applique, that also qualifies the card for another challenge- Crafty Creations. I added Glitter via the Sakura Gelly Roll Pen- the touch of Gold makes the hearts on the cup and the one in the steam really sparkle.

Finally, I wanted to share a picture of my Copic color card I keep in the rack with my Copic markers by color family. Mary Ann, who is the authority on Copics- her blog- I Like Markers- suggests making a color chart for your Copics on the paper you use when coloring images with Copics. I have a full sized color chart, and additionally, I take these ATC sized cards (2 1/2 x's 3 1/2) and make a small chart by color family. Here I have the B's and the BG's. This way, I can hold my card right up to the cardstock I am using to find the closest match I have to the cardstock I am using without the visual distractions of the 'other' colors on the color chart. I make these for my Bic and Sharpie markers as well.
