ASCC #16: Brunette Buddy

I was big on challenges this week but short on time! Yikes! Of course, I can always count on Kimm at Artful Sentiments to make everything come together with her fun Copic Color Challenges! Her wonderful color selection this week inspired me to new heights of challenge combinations!

Here's the Artful Sentiments Copic Challenge colors for this week:

YG67 Moss, B23 Phthalo Blue, and E47 Dark Brown

Remember you can use 1, 2 or all 3 of these wonderful colors or whatever you have that is close! I chose to use Moss and Phthalo Blue and the spirit of E47 dark brown. Then I saw that Copic Creations was doing a Brunette Hair Challenge, I decided to try my hand at that as well.

For the sketch, I used the sketch from the CPS Card Sketch this week!

I took the Secret Crafter's suggestion from last Saturday and used 3 pieces of ribbon on this card. I even decided to go green in another way and used my scraps instead of breaking out any new paper.

Here's the final product of all my efforts!

Brunette Buddy
