A very COLORFUL Blog Hop today

Hey there all! It is Blog Hop time over at Bombshell Stamps.  If you arrived here from Alison's blog you are on the right track. If not - head on over to the Bombshell Stamps Blog and start your trail off right!  We are a hopping away today with a little bit of a color challenge. The Rockin Alison - The Goddess of the Bombshell Blog Hops has asked us to follow this wonderful colorful theme in our pursuit of Bombshell Hoppiness today!

44916557_a2yGNvL9_b[1].jpg Apparently she wanted us to use at least three of the colors in this. You know me - I can never just sit back and coast through, so I used ALL the colors. :-) The image is from the new GORGEOUS Lotus Garden Stamps - one of Bombshell Stamps new Asian themed stamp sets.

I used V000 and then RV63 and 66 for the main flower. The water is BG70, 72, 75, 78 for the water.  Now - A few of you know this already - I did take the Intermediate Copic Certification about a week and a half ago. It was AWESOME! One of the things they encouraged was more use of Shadows and darker colors. So I also added in a bit of RV99 to the flowers. I thought - it looks good, but to me the shadows really show up cool in the close up.  I hope to show some more off, but have not had the time since I got back later Saturday night and I have not had much time to practice. And trust me when I say, the key to Copics is PRACTICE.

Now - Your next stop on the hop is to visit the lovely  Jennie's blog.  And if you get lost you can always head back to the Bombshell Blog and start again!

Thank You for stopping by. I hope to see you again REALLY REALLY soon!!!
