it is the time of the week where I share a card  I made for the challenge at inspiration destination blogspot   using a beautiful image from east wind designs called kimono girl mon armour  Please check their images out, they are so pretty.

I coloured the girl with my copic markers on to white card cut out of a faux stitching die. This time I remembered to cut the image out before coloring, in case things went wrong with the cutting I would not have to start all over again.

For those living in France the best card I have found for coloring with copic markers is DCP from clairefontaine which is a laser printer paper. It exists in different weights from 80 grs to 250 grs.

The background paper is a paper I bought years ago while travelling in british columbia from a lady who had a stamping shop in her house in the mddle of nowhere. Those were the days when stamp shops were not really that popular. Things have changed now.

I try to keep my colouring to three colors, find it is less confusing to the eye. This was black, red and white themed ,OK white is not a colour, but you get what I mean, Hope you like it, I do......  I think I might even keep this one and frame it.

Beautifully coloured image and very chic layout and background paper. I love those faux stitched dies, they add such an extra lift but I thought they only came in American paper sizes? Well done on another superb card! Bravo!

Beautiful card! I love your image and great colouring too!
Thanks for your nice comment on my doggy calendar page - you'd asked if I'd used a stamp for the dates, but I've hand written it (always a bit scary as usually I can't write in a straight line LOL)

I love how you colored this beautiful stamp. You have some fabulous cards on your blog. Your coloring is fabulous. I have never thought about how many colors I use on a stamp. I took a look through my cards and I see that I usually use three colors also! So, you have taught me something new today! LOL! I am also your latest follower! (By e-mail) Have a great week-end!
