Some Odd Girl Fun Day Challenge!!

Greetings Oddies!!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!  I know I did spending the weekend away with my darling hubby and kids!  Today is a fabulously fun day over at the Some Odd Girl Challenge Blog as Kristy is changing it up a bit with a Bright Color Fun Challenge!  As you can see, I've inked up Cupcake Mae and colored her super brightly with my Copics.  (psst...I TOTALLY want a dress like that!!)

I used white gel pen to create the illusion of shine on the cherry in her hair and the reflective dots on her eyes. 
Here are the marker colors I used to color Mae.
You'll notice a few Pantone and Prismacolor markers strewn about in there.  It's ok...they're all friends ;)  I LOVE the Pantone markers because they have three nibs.  One large chisel tip, one sort of small pointy tip - similar to the Copic Original markers and then they have a teeny, tiny micro-fine point that allows you to access the tiniest of areas which is helpful when you are trying to get color in one small space but not bleed out onto the areas around it. 
I used my Rolled Rose Die-namic from MFT to create this bright and happy felt flower cluster.  The pearls were originally white but I colored them with my Copics to match my felt perfectly.  I added a bit of bling and a few sewing stickpins to complete this arrangement. 

The blue doily in the background was also originally white but I used my spongy ink blending tool to coat it with Peacock Blue Distress Ink.  My papers are from MME and Bazzill.

I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired today!!  You'll definitely want to check out all of the gorgeousness at the SOG challenge blog!

Crafty Hugs!
