Color Me Creative Guest Designer

Have you ever seen any of Suzanne Dean's Coloring Tutorials? They are amazing! Her videos taught me to understand the basics of using Copic and other alcohol ink colors. I am only a beginner. By watching others' techniques you can lose your fear and begin to grow with coloring! Here are some of Suzanne's How to Color with Copic videos: Suzanne on YouTube

I am honored to be asked to guest design at Suzanne's Color Me Creative Copic Challenge !

The sponsor and prizes for this challenge is from digital Artist Alicia. You can see her digi images at her Etsy Shop here: Alicia's Little Shop

Here is my sample, using Alicia's Ballerina (without the included bunny). One great ability with digi images is that you can make them larger or smaller according to your needs at the time

Also entered into the TTCRD July 16 Anything Goes Challenge

Thank you so much for looking!

  1. This is a super card! I really love the colouring--especially her hair. I am going to have to watch those tutorials, too, so I can learn how to colour ;)

  2. She is so sweet! I love the touches of glitter on her skirt. :)

  3. Rosy I adore this precious card! you did a wonderful job of coloring. and Congrats on being guest designer on Suzannes site <3 hugssssssss, Karen

  4. Rosy, you certainly learned those techniques well. Your card is amazingly wonderful. So love how you did the hair on that sweet gal. Myself, I am not a fan of digis though. And, my printer doesn't work good with them either, as when I color with them, I have streaks of black.

  5. Rosy, what a wonderful card, the colouring is beautiful, so you have obviously picked up the techniques well for colouring. Gorgeous card. Hugs, Jen :-) xx
