ATC Challenge and Swap at Mad for Markers

Hi all, our challenge at Mad for Markers this fortnight is to make an ATC (Artist Trading Card) measuring 3.5" x 2.5", now don't be put off by the size, these are fun to make, just learn from my lesson, make sure your image fits on that size of card before you colour lol!

Now I have used Inky Impressions Lili's secret, coloured her with Copics, isn't she just cute look at her FRV1 (Flourescent Pink) coloured nails with a little special effects added (just a little fiddly lol). Also used special effects on those gorgeous blue eyes, shoes, hair band and flowers. Used Kindyglitz on these gorgeous flowers from Bizzy Becs, yes I have got flowers, what a tough decision to either use the blue or the pink in the end I put both on and then as you can see I got carried away with the kindyglitz so fairly sparkly lol! Just might of overdone it a little hehe, so not like me. Cut around the sentiment, distressed then sponged with Regal Rose.

Copic Colours used:

Face & Skin - E000, E00, R20, R22 & B26
Hair - E50, E51, E53 & Y26
Clothes & Shoes - B91, B95, B97, (Trousers) R81, R83, R85 (Top)
FRV1, E13, E25 & YR16

The complete copic range is available from Sammi at the Mad for Markers Store, delivering to Australia and New Zealand.

This challenge is on till 10th July, don't forget to pop over to the Mad for Markers Blog each week day for some wonderful inspiration from the talented Mad for Markers DT. We thought we would have a little more fun this challenge and we are asking all entrants and DT to send in their ATC's to Sammi and she will swap them about and post back out to everyone and don't forget the winner gets to be Guest Designer for our next challenge. Looking forward to visiting and seeing your wonderful creations.
