Flip It!

I'm here to invite you to Challenge No. 16 at Inspiration Destination Challenge Blog! Wow! I cannot believe we are up to week 16! It feels like I only started this new adventure yesterday!
So this week, we have the fabulous Rick St. Dennis as our generous sponsor! One lucky winner will win TWO digis of their choice. This is my little project to inspire you to come join in on the fun!
I used a new color palette for the hair and eyes. It's not one I've used before and I LOVE how her eyes came out... and the hair! :) I'll give you the colors I've used for both the eyes and hair because that's the only color combo I can remember at this time. Also, I was experimenting because I'm running out of ink on many of my colors and have only returned to work since October but I'm so behind on life that getting Copic refills is kinda taking a backseat right now... if you can believe that!
Eyes: G99, YG95, Y19
Hair: 100, E79, E57, E37, E35, E33

Word Art Wednesday: Challenge #166 - Anything Goes
I liked this image so much, I had to make a second card!
I'm sure we all know that the wonderful advantage of using digital images is the ability to flip the image and resize it. This is how the image originally came to me. I flipped it as you can see in the first card. I think we often forget to do this and I like to try to remember to do it as often as I can, especially for a progressive challenge where everyone is using the same image. I think it makes mine pop out!
