January Color Challenge is LIVE

Who's up for a color challenge?  I'll be posting a new color challenge every month on the first day of that month.  I'm excited because I LOVE color challenges!  This one is no exception, it's awesome!

These beautiful pinks and grays just spoke to me, not to mention those amazing paper flowers in the photo! Wow!  I just love them! 

I had a hard time choosing an image for the project I wanted to make using this color palette.  I wanted to inspire you all to want to play along, but I also really wanted to challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone and do something that was a little intimidating to me.  Then it hit me!!!!!

Copic markers used:
Tail: R83, RV32, R32, RV23, RV21, RV10
Skin: E15, E11, E21, E00, E000
Hair: C8, C6, C4, C2, C0
Barrel: N6, N4, N2, N0, W6, W4, W2
Background: C, N, W, and T series markers and RV10 along with 0 Colorless Blender

I just ADORE this image from Some Odd Girl called "Mermaid Bath."  In all honesty, I couldn't be happier with the way this turned out.  I added a bit of white jelly roll pen to the snowcaps on the mountains and a glitter jelly roll pen to the mermaid's tail.  I mean, she HAS to be glittery right???

The background papers are from the Graphic 45 Bloom series and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and a few miscellaneous one that I had from friends sending them to me (thank you Jasmine!). 

I really hope this inspires you to play along with this color challenge.  To enter all you have to do is make a project that uses the color palette above, then post the photo of your project into the album in the FaceBook group.   You can enter up to three times as long as your projects are in the album prior to the last day of the month.  I'll announce the winner on the first of February when I post the new challenge!  Remember, we are a coloring group, so your project needs to have something colored on it! Wanna know what you're trying to win???  OK!!!! 

The winner this month will get:  A Sweet Sentiment Tee Shirt!!!!! Awe yeah!  So much fun!

I can't wait to see what you all create, I'm off to make a cup of coffee.  Toodles!
