In a yahoo group I belong to, we do monthly card swaps. This month we were to make 3 cards and send 2 of them to our swap partners and one to a girl in the military. The first card is for our military adoptee, Kylene, and the other two are for my partners. I received beautiful cards from both of my partners this week. The bottom two cards are made with CC Designs Pilgrims from http://allthatscraps.com. I found that when I color with my copic markers the colors were too bright for what I wanted so I went over them with gray markers and the original colors came through much more muted. I love the way they turned out. The boy in green looked more like a leprechan than a pilgrim when I first colored them. The gray really toned him down. I also used the grays over the girl in pink and the boy in blue. The purples were perfect so I didn't have to do anything to them.
