Belli Challenge #35 - metal tags

This week's Belli Challenge is to use metal tags on your card or project. I chose to add a metal edge tag to my card. The tag was originally silver on the edge, but I used my Copic marker to color it pink to match my card. Isn't that cool??

Not only did I color the little girl image and the tag with my Copic markers, but I also transformed a white Prima flower into a chocolate flower. There are so many cool things we can do with Copic markers.

I stamped the "hugs" sentiment (from CHF) and the little girl image (from SNSS) with Adirondack Espresso ink. The designer paper is from the new Basic Grey Eva collection, the flowers are Prima, and the ruffly chocolate ribbon is from a retired Stampin Up Flirty Ribbon Originals collection. Below are the Copic markers I used to color in the little girl. I'm really happy with how this turned out, considering it is only the third thing I have colored with Copics.
