Challenge No. 58 ~ Coloring Fur … with a Twist!

September 15, 2011

Welcome to a new Copic Creations challenge.

We’re so happy to have you joining us today … and, we think you’ll be glad you did!

But you’re probably wondering what exactly is COLORING FUR … with a TWIST?!

Here’s a BIG hint ~

Hopefully, you’re familiar with these guys!  🙂

Well, that’s our TWIST – Copic coloring of FUR with BRIGHT colors … not your usual BROWN bears!!

Fun, right?  hehehe

If you would prefer to color your fur using Brown Copics, that’s okay too – we’ll still let you play along!   No worries.

You’ll just have to page down to see the GORGEOUSLY colored sample cards from the Design Team today, in a wide array of Copic colors.


We’re also SUPER excited to share the news that we have TWO fabulous sponsors this week!!!

The awesome Design Team sample images have been provided by the Stamp, home to some of THE cutest digital images around.   I hope you’ll take a few minutes to pop over to visit the Stamp to check out these cuties and do a little shopping too!


Our SECOND sponsor is  …


My Creative Classroom is an online arts and crafts learning center.  Their interactive and in-depth courses are instructor led and filled with wonderful projects and techniques to help you get the most out of your supplies.

This fall MCC will be offering over 100 courses. From the Cricut to Primas to mixed media to rubber stamping to scrapbooking we have something for everyone. Don’t miss out on some wonderful classes starting in September and continuously opening through mid-December, including:

The BEST part is the PRIZES we have for one VERY lucky winner this week …

1.   A $10.00 Gift Certificate from the Stamp


2.  (from Kim of MCC)  “We are excited to be sponsoring the Copic Creations Challenge blog. You can view our entire class list on our website at My Creative Classroom. You can also view classes on our Facebook Page too!

One lucky winner will receive a free seat to a class of their choice…..Good Luck!”

How Exciting!!!   Pretty cool prizes!


Time for our In The Spotlight designer this week … always a tough one!  

But even tougher than normal since we received such amazingly gorgeous PINK entries for our last challenge.  

Thank you ALL for playing along with us – you’re all Copic Goddesses!  🙂

We just couldn’t help ourselves and had to spotlight this PINK pink pink adorable ostrich from
