A New Challenge at Jan's Digi Stamp Challenge

Hello everyone!  A new challenge is up over at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge Blog!

This is my inspiration for the challenge.  I love Jan's artwork and this set is
just gorgeous!  It's the Early Spring Nest  #932J
This is such a springtime set!  And I enjoy coloring up Jan's images so much!
So let's begin:

I started by printing off my image onto Neenah80lb Classic Crest Solar White
card stock.  I cut it to size and then softly ink blended the edges.

Then I colored my image with Copic markers (colors listed below).  I started by coloring
the nest first.  This helped me to figure out the placement of everything.

Next, I moved onto the leaves, flowers and lastly, the eggs.  I mounted my panel
onto an A2 size card base.  I added Vintage Drops and some Crystal Glaze to the eggs.
And my card was finished!

Copic Markers Used:

Nest:  E53, E31, E35, E37, E47
Leaves:  YG63, YG91, G21, G99, G94, G82
Flowers & Buds: R000, R11, R02, R05, R14
Flower Centers: Y21, Y28
Eggs: BG10, BG72

As I mentioned in my last post, starting in April all of Jan's challenges will be on the first Monday of the month with 2 winners - one winner will be chosen that has used one of Jan's digistamps.  And another winner from all of the projects that use other stamps.  All of the design team will be posting inspiration for you throughout the month.  By changing it to this schedule we feel that it gives everyone a better chance to win!  And who wouldn't want to win!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today and for your continued support!
