Lollipop Crafts Challenge #88

Hey everyone!!

We're having another fun challenge over at the Lollipop Crafts blog this week and guess who's late in posting?  Yep, that would be me!  Well I hope you won't hold it against me!  (hehe) It was a pretty jam-packed weekend and it was non-stop so I didn't get a chance to upload my challenge share until now.  I hope you will join us for our Back to School challenge this week.  Hop on over to the blog and check out what the A-Team has to inspire you.  They did a wonderful job (as always)!  And also you'll want to know who our sponsor is this week.  Stop by the LC blog on Wednesday to check out the T-Team sponsor spotlight on Eye Candie Creations.

I made another bookmark, because you can't have too many.  I found this really cool anime girl in a school outfit that was perfect. 


I colored her up with greens, dark grays, blues and pink!  Yep, I've been itching to color up some pink hair and this was a perfect image to do that.   Her name is Tohru Honda and the lineart is by Sureya.  I just love all of Sureya's sketches and lineart.  They have that awesome anime/manga feel.  Too bad I can't color as well, but I'm still practicing.  I think I'll purchase Zoe's series of coloring tutorials.  I seriously need some help! lol..

Anyhoos,  I thought it would be fun to trim the image narrow so that her flowing hair goes off the edge.  Matted the image to a piece of black cardstock and see the ribbon on top?  Well I didn't have any black or green handy so I used my Copics to color one black and one green to match her outfit.  Pretty cool how you can use Copics to add some color to match your accessories and colored image. :)


Well friends, I hope you are inspired to create some Back to School items and then share with us on the LC blog.  We'd love to come and ooh and ahh! :)  Mahalo for stopping by!!

Take care,
Leanne
