Come Softly

It's been quite a while since I devoted some solid time to my Copic coloring.  And I'll be honest---I've really missed it!  There's something very soothing about coloring an image; no reason to rush and no one to tell you it's wrong.  And just when I needed a push to get back to my calm place, I discovered a brilliant artist by the name of Ching Chou Kuik.  Her designs are available through Sweet Pea Stamps and could not be more amazing or fun to color.  This image is titled Come Softly and I felt inclined to color it as such.  Lately my favorite go-to color combo has been aqua, teal and brown and I adore how it looks on this card.

Skin:  E11, E00, 0 (cheeks R11)
Hair:  E13, YR20, Y21, Y11
Lips:  RV11, RV10
Eyes:  B16, B14, B000, W1, W0

This cute little rosette was made by hand sewing a strip of fabric (1.5"x6") along the long edge and pulling it tightly. I then used hot glue to adhere it to the card and keep the two ends held together. It was topped off with a small gem glued to the middle.


  1. Great job! Crystal! Love the image and how you colored it.
