Copic Challenge - Pictorial Inspiration

Interesting challenge over on the Copic Challenge blog today. This challenge is based on this picture




I used the picture to its full potential, exploring colours and shapes equally. The horizontal lines are represented by both the flowers and scalloped chippie shape. The vertical panels are obvious and all the colours were plucked from the painting.

Everything has been coloured with Copics, from the images through to the background papers, the Chippie shape and even the flowers. I used an image from our latest Holly & Madison's World Tour download bundle.






The meaning behind the three pictures? Well I wanted to focus on a strong colour from the painting for each one. It is intended to be the same girl on holiday (see how she gets browner in each picture?), so same bag, hat and shoes but a girl can't wear the same bikini every day!

It's quite a plain and simple card but it shows the Copics well I think.

These are the colours used:
