CMC Challenge #3 -- Curly hair


Challenge #3 at Color Me Copic is to use Copics to color curly hair. The uber talented Amy Young produced her first video here on how she colors curly hair and it's truly mesmerizing to watch!

I stamped Dylan from The Greeting Farm's Roll Call kit and propped myself up next to my laptop and followed Amy's step-by-step tutorial. Here's my card with my first attempt at curly hair alá Amy!

I used Kelly's hair colors (E31, E25, E29, E49) and basically drew squiggles over his entire head, just as Amy explained. No blending at all!

I paired him with a Kid's Quote sentiment that my pal Kelly gave me but I think he looks a bit too sweet for it. Especially since I trimmed off his head and tilted it a bit.



And with the help of Random.org, the winner of Cheeky Glamour is Ruby! I've emailed you, Ruby! I'll also be sending you some rayon seam binding so you can make your own crinkled ribbon...Have fun!

Stamps; The Greeting Farm, Inkadinkado
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Hero Arts kraft
Paper: Fancy Pants
Ink: Memento, Versafine
Other: Copics, Nestabilities, twine, pop dots
