Challenge No. 50 ~ Yellow

May 15, 2011

Hello and welcome to our 50th Copic Creations challenge!   Phew, that’s a LOT of challenges!

Today we are featuring an often neglected Copic color ~ YELLOW!!    There certainly are enough Y and YR Copic color choices, yet it seems to be one of the least used colors.   Poor YELLOW.

Smiley from millan.net

 Well, we hope to change your feelings about YELLOW today!   Below you’ll find some amazing creations from the Design Team, showcasing their favorite YELLOW Copic combinations.  Yes, you will be amazed at their work!

We are also welcoming back one of our favorite sponsors ~ Paper Makeup Stamps, owned by our own awesome DT member Katie Cotton!    Here’s a little info about Katie and PMS:

Katie has been stamping since 2006 but paper crafting for much longer.  The first moment she had rubber in her inky fingers, she knew that one day she’d like to start her own company.  3 short years later, her visions are coming to a reality.  The company prides itself on a “have it your way” attitude offering stamps bare or mounted, and many in various sizes.  All suggestions will be taken to heart as the customers are the core of this company.
How the name came about
While stamping, scrapbooking and other paper crafting are Katie’s major hobbies, she is a professional makeup artist by trade.  When she was first thinking of what to call her company, Paper Makeup was first to come to mind.  After using it as her blog title for nearly a year, she couldn’t decide if she should choose a new name, or stick to one near and dear to her heart.  Since so many knew her as “Paper Makeup”, it won out and Paper Makeup Stamps was born!

We hope you’ll take some time to check out her store – you won’t be disappointed!    All the YELLOW sample cards from DT feature an image from Paper Makeup Stamps.

Soooo, what’s the PRIZE this week you ask … 

A $20.00 Gift Certificate to the Paper Makeup Stamps store!!

PLEASE NOTE  You are NOT required to use an image from our sponsor for your Copic Creations project. You will have until May 31st, 12:00 P.M., CDT to post your artwork and be eligible for a chance to win this weeks prize; The winner will be announced along with our next challenge post on June 1st.

Don’t forget to stop back on June 1st for our HUGE TWO-YEAR BLOGOVERSARY BLOWOUT!!   You won’t want to miss this one … we have a TON of prizes lined up this celebration!!
