challenge card

Whilst I was blog surfing this week I came across a blog called Copic Oz. With in the first few minutes I found a challenge to enter and a tutorial, by Mandi-Lee.. I loved the image Mandi-Lee was using in her tutorial so much the first thing I had to do was to head over to Tiddly Inks to invest in this image Wryn-Close to my heart..(and maybe a couple more shhhh!)..

Now onto the the Challenge at Copic Oz
To create a project using these colours (R46, R59, G40, BG53, BG93, BG96, E87, BV31, RV55, YR24, V20, V25) or as close as you can get...

Made for Markers is also having a challenge to use new colour combo's and due to this being colours I haven't put together I am entering it there as well.

I have used V20 and V25 for the wings but they didn't come up as dark underneath so I added C5 and C3 to the shadowed part and tried Mandi-Lee's tutorial for the wings as well.
Thanks for the tutorial Mandi-Lee I love learning about these great markers..
