Sugar 'n Spice Dolls

Here the card I made using the gray samples from the in the last technique post, Tips, Tricks & Techniques 0x022, and uses all four tones of Copic grays. I arranged them in the center putting cools and warms opposite each other to balance out the difference. Then I continued to add everything else to the card too for another eclectic look. ;D

Here's a picture of all the colors used on the Sugar 'n Spice Dolls, from the top to bottom, and from coolest to warmest, the names of the images are Pepper, Peppermint, Nutmeg and Cinamon.

I used the carnival themed paper again and added various objects such as ribbon roses, linen mesh, chipboard embellishments, hat pins, film strip, ticket and carnival candy (faux of course)! Did you spot all that? Now we just need to find Waldo and we'll be set.
