Up and Away (Copic Colour Challenge #10)

This is the first time I've entered the Copic Colour Challenge and I have to admit that I thought the colors were hard to pair with the stamps in my collection. I also don't own Copic Color B02, but the challenge sponsors don't seem to mind if you can't use all colors in the challenge. I'm a Copic novice, and I'd love to advance my technique using these wonderful markers. Bean Tip: It is possible to match all of Stampin' Up's standard colors with Copic. B39 (Prussian Blue), for example, is very nearly an exact match with SU's Brilliant Blue.

To view an image up-close, please click on the photo.

For the image, I used only the mouse/balloon portion of this cute Penny Black stamp and paired it with a 'Thank You' banner. The cloudy sky was done by sponging ink using a scallop circle punch as a mask.
