Deconstructed Sketch Challenge 116- Fall Splendor

With the kids back in school I am trying to get in the studio more. I did not realize just how much I missed being creative until I got my fingers inky, and snapped the cap off of a Copic marker! (I tell you, those Copic markers are addictive! You will see in just a bit.)

You can see the sketch HERE. I had been looking through my stamps trying to find some inspiration when I am across Fall Splendor by Inkadinkado. I had yet to ink it up, so it was a good one to start with. I then hopped over to Deconstructing Jen for some layout ideas, as always I was not disappointed! For my final piece of inspiration I I looked to the August Taylored Expressions KI kit for some designer paper and cardstock.

Once I had all of my inspiration, I was able to begin coloring my stamped image. Oh my goodness, I rediscovered my love of Copics AND coloring!
I am not lying when I tell you Copic markers are addictive, just look at how many I used on this one image.......
Yikes!! There are over 20 markers there! I like the angle of the card in this photo too, you can see that the image actually overhangs the front of my card. (The polka dots seen in the previous photo is the inside of the card,) I think it turned out pretty cute considering how rusty I was. LOL
I am looking forward to using more Copics, and ink, and stamps, and pretty paper.........well, you get the idea.

Turned out beautiful! I was using my FlexMarkers which are also alcohol markers a lot, but have gone back to using my water color crayons more. Have also gotten into using colored pencils and Gamsol which I really am loving!
