Here's a Hug

Ever have one of those days when you felt like this? I know I have! She is just so pitiful standing there holding her little rabbit and crying her eyes out. This is an image from Sassy Cheryl's and is called Missing You. All of her images are just so much fun to color, which lately has been my number one criteria for picking stamps or images to play with. I have bought several of them so far and every time I go and look she has added even more to the store, each one cuter than the last. I can't visit too often! Anyway, after sizing my image, I printed it out and then colored it with Copic markers. On Paper Craft Planet, there is a thread asking about our favorite color combos. This happens to be several of my favorite combos. Her shirt is R22, R24, R29 and R39, her jeans are B32, B34 and B39, my favorite yellow blonde hair is Y21, Y23 and a little E31 and my go to colors for brown shoes are E71, E74 and E79. I have had that paper forever and have been hoarding it because I just love it. Since this card was about my favorite Copic colors, I decided to cut into it. I just used some random buttons to make the border on the side. The sentiment is from a set of stamps that  got at Jo-Ann's and I can't remember if they are some old Hero Arts or another brand. I've had them a while and the original packaging is long gone. Thanks for visiting with me a little while today!

So cute - and I love all the buttons! Thanks for saying what color Copics you used - I'm trying to learn how to do this and it helps to kinda see what colors go with each other. Anyway, great card. That image is precious too.

I'm glad you shared all the colors that you used. This would be perfect for my DD to send to her sister and brother. Last night she was so sad because it is yet one more month before they are home from college and she misses them dreadfully.

I gave up adding all the copics I used, actually sometimes it was crazy how MANY I did use on just one card!
