For my sister + 3 challenges

I am confident on posting this before my sister sees it ... because she has a toddler and a preschooler and never looks here! LOL

I made this mega bookmark for my sister last night in lieu of a birthday card. I mean ... cards are nice, but they don't do anything. She's a big reader, so I thought I'd make a giant bookmark for the huge novels she reads instead!

Stamp is Lillith, a Lil Lolita from Tickled Pink Stamps
Copic markers: E50, E51, E53, C1, C3, C5, C7, W1, W3, W5, W7, R20, R22, R27, R29, G94, G99, B00, BV00, BV02, BV04, BV08, 0
Clear spica pen (earrings, buttons, roses)
Letter stamps: Darkroom Door, Alphabet Medley
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Dusty Concord

* I printed my digital stamp onto Xpress It cardstock (the absolute best card for copic markers!).
* I used the colourless blender (0) to put down the colour for the eyeshadow, the eyes and help mute down the W1 & W3 for the white areas on her dress & sash. I'm really glad I did, because I am entering this bookmark in the Copic Creations blog challenge here.
* I used my Sizzix to cut squares for the letters, then trimmed them down, so I am entering this in the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge.
* I learned the eyeshadow technique from a great video on Color Me Copic by Kelly Booth, and this bookmark fits the current challenge (I think).

Dawn!! I love this bookmark...purple and black are so striking together. Your colouring of this fun image is amazing...great depth, highlights and the eyeshadow is perfect! I have a few sample sheets of the X-Press It, but haven't played around with it enough to know if I love it yet. (I'm such a "Neenah" girl...not sure if I can bear to switch!)
