Once again, it's Saturday and time for a new Copic Color Challenge at Artful Sentiments by Kimm!

Here's the lovely earthy colors for this week:

YR23 - Yellow Ochre, E37 Sepia and E59 Walnut

As always, you can use just 1, 2 or all 3 of the colors for the challenge or whatever you have that is close!

I put these colors together with Midnight Madness #24 Sketch below:

and the Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply Brads Challenge and added in the pierced spotlight technique from Technique Junkies! Now, for the perfect's a "sneak peek" at the absolutely charming new stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms, Horse and Rider! It will release on October 27th!
