Swings 'n Slides Happy Mail

I've been wanting to color this one for a while especially to give that pillar box a nice rich red color. I went off of memory and added some black to the base.  I missed the top placard when coloring and accidentally colored it red too... that meant I couldn't give it a nice shiny metal color so I went with black instead. But it still works.

I've used Swings 'n Slides Happy Mail rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. 

There's a new Anything Goes challenge this week - come link any project!
You can link any project from any company that you'd colored this week.

I wanted the dress to coordinate with the paper so I colored it blue then used a white gel pen and attempted to draw in the same pattern. I was able to get a few of the complicated components then filled in the rest with more simple ones.  I think it turned out better than I anticipated.

The Copic markers I used on Swings 'n Slides Happy Mail are:

T8, 5, 3, C3, 1
R02, 08, 59, 29
YG91, 93, 95
B91, 93, 97, 99
BG11, 32, 34
E41, 42, 43, 44
E00, 01, 21, 34
B000, 00, 01
