Coloring Black and White with Copics

 Hi Stampers,
Wow, it's been a while!  I didn't realize it had been so long....but I'm back in action!  I have been thinking about coloring an image black and white with my Copics and finally did it:)  I chose to use Beccy Muirs image from Just Froggy.  Only I did the entire piece in black and white and it just didn't do anything for me, so I had to do something??  At first I just added some semi transparent glitter to the b/w image with Spirited Green on the frog and Lemonade on the flowers buds, but that didn't look good with the b/w under it, so then I carefully added the colored Copic to the frog and buds and it became acceptable to me.  It's still not a wow card to me like I've seen others do in b/w, but I think it's okay.
I also did a Spellbinders Border die on the side and put the 3/4" Tear-ific Tape under it and added more Lemonade glitter!.  I embossed the sentiment with Black Detail EP.

I will be back tomorrow with a scrapbook page I just finished also.
Thanks for stopping by:) I've missed you!

Happy Stampin'
