From Our Family Tree To Yours....

It's time for a new challenge on the CropStop Blog...and this week's challenge is to use the colors of your country's flag.  For me that would be red, white and blue! 

I decided to go with a HoneyPop card featuring Inky Antics' Ornament Birdy set.  I colored my birdy with the following Copic Markers: B97, B95, B93, B0000, YG97, C1, YR16 and Copic Spica glitter pens in red and silver.  This designer paper is from Bo Bunny and punches are from Martha Stewart.
I used the white HoneyComb Pad for my tree, however then I used the Copic Airbrush and YG97 to add some coloring to my tree.  I've never seen this done before, but I love the shaded look I achieved with this technique!   I also used a star in this kit to make a Honey Pop star on top of my tree...how cool is that?! 

Be sure you pop by the CropStop Blog today to see the other takes on our challenge and to get the challenge rules and PRIZE information!
