My very first challenge!

Holy cow, did I pick a tough one for my first ever challenge, or what?!? The gals over at the new blog Copics Colour Challenge gave us THREE colors to work with: B28 (royal blue), YR07 (cadmium orange), & V06 (lavendar). I didn't have the exact colors, but I came pretty doggone close. Here's what I ended up with:It's called "Didja ever have one of THOSE days?" I named it that, because last week when I first pondered taking on this challenge, I was having one of THOSE WEEKS! *LOL* I mounted this on a 5x7 black pre-made base; some orange/purple diagonal stripe paper; used my Fiskars "raindrops" texture plate on a smoke blue cardstock; a Glaze pen to highlight the raindrops; black glitter "thickers"; Lineart from PC Crafter (Marie Cole's "Fontmania"); chalks for the sky & Copics for subject and the puddle;largest of the classic oval Nestabilities to cut out image. Here are the colors I used:Tomorrow's post (hopefully) ~ my challenge for The Cuttlebug Spot. '"B" is for Bling' ~ stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
