Just dropping in !

Hi there everyone hope you are having a great start to your weekend !  Wow it has been almost a month since my last post.  As most of you know I was moving and now we are pretty much settled in our new home and I am loving it, it is so peaceful and pretty out here we are at the base of the White Tank mountains so when I walk out my bedroom door to the patio I have a really pretty view.  I treated myself to some new furniture so on my upcoming vacation I will work on actually putting my craft studio it seems I have a little more goodies than I thought so I may need to have some custom cabinets built KWIM so we will see that will happen later if necessary which I am thinking it will be.

It is challenge time again over at CMC Challenge group this time we want to see your favorite copic coloring technique....Just to name a few: feathering, coloring embellishments, airbrushing, bridging colors, folds, hair colors, colorless blender techniques, black/white/sepia, and more!
I used blending, folds/pleats and blending 2 colors together. 
We are being sponsored by Tiffany's Doodles and the lucky winner will receive 10 digi images of their choice ! So what are you waiting for grab those copics and get to coloring.  Don't forget that this is the first challenge of the month and you will also be entered in a chance to win a Gift cert at Oozak.

I used the image called flower and mushrooms I knew exactly what I was going to do when I seen this know how I love my little Tilda's well this little cutie that is landing on the mushroom is a mini from the Fairytale collection as is the little butterfly. 
My images are colored with copics, the sky is done with chalk and I have added stickles to the butterfly wings and Tilda's wings.
