Falling Leaves...

There is something about a pile of fallen leaves that just makes me want to run and throw myself into them with wild abandon. I chose this Mo's Digital Pencil image for my entry to the Copic Creations Challenge - #11 Favorite Copic Color Combinations! Now that's a mouthful.

So here is my wee one, Kai...

I guess if I had to come up with my favorite combination of Copics I would have to say E21, E000 and E0000. Those are the colors I use for the skin on all my images. Well, sometimes I substitue E21 for E02. To me, I get very realistic skin tones every time.

Here is a close up of Kai...

I had fun coming up with a sentiment to put on this card. I computer generated this one and fit it so it would work in the circle. The sweet Maple Leaf charm is from a friend who sent me a love package. Thank you so much Chris!

Here is how I have finished off the inside of my card...

Here is a closer view of how I did my image on the inside...
