Color Me Creative Guest Designer

Hello, Friends! I was invited to join the CMC Challenge group as Guest Designer. So, today I’m sharing a card I made for the theme this challenge which is Navy or Dark Blues.
My card features the lovely “Traveling Tilda” and “Suitcase with Sign” both from the 2010 Bon Voyage Collection. I colored them in Copics and I gave the suitcase a Zebra print. Our wonderful Team Leader at CMC, Suzanne Dean, loves zebra print so I colored this in her honor. I am so proud to be a member of the CMC Classroom now for 3 years and have learned so many Copic coloring techniques in Suzanne's classroom. I have also taken the Distress Ink Coloring, Magnolia Coloring and Prisma Color Pencil classes she offers. This is the best place I've found to learn or brush up on coloring skills with these mediums.
My DPs are from Papertrey Ink called Postmarks. I used some new die cuts on my card. The simple banner is from Poppy Stamps, the Garden Corner is from SCACD, and the Eiffel Tower is a Silhouette Cameo cutting file from Snapdragon Snippets.
Here's a closeup of Tilda. I covered the suitcase hinges with silver Stickles and Tilda’s shoes got a coat of Glossy Accents.
These are the Copics I used to color Tilda and her suitcase.


Supplies:
Cardstock – Bazzill
DPs – PTI
Flowers – WOC
Dies/Punches – Poppy Stamps; SCACD; Silhouette
Lace Trim – Simplicity
Feathers – Michaels

I’m entering this card in the following Challenges:

Make It Monday – Linky Party
The OutLawz Copic/Promarker - Vacation Destination

I hope my card inspires you to join us for the challenge at CMC. Go check out the lovely DT members’ projects as they are so talented.

Hugz,
