Happy Birthday w/ Cool Grey

Happy Friday,
and a happy Friday it is!!

Love Fridays!! Love the weekend and the break from the routine of work. This weekend will be filled with family as it is Mother's Day here in Canada.

Today I have a cute little card here to show you. I am entering it for the
Mad 4 Markers challenge : GREYS
Make it Colorful challenge : black w/ a hint of red.

Okay so mine ended up being a bit more of a balance between red and black but I love it all the same.

I love coloring black hair although it can be a little tricky. I think the best combo for black hair using Copic markers is the "C" greys. I think the COOL tones work best for a black effect.

Okay well, I'm off but I hope to be back soon with some more to share.

Have a GREAT weekend.
