Halloween Card Using 5 Copic Markers and DZ Doodles Image!

For someone starting out using Copic Markers it's very easy to find images that do not require a lot of colors. I decided to create a Halloween card showing how you can use just a few Copic colors.

This card was made using only 5 Copic Markers!



Also, since this was the weekend before Halloween I thought I would not only get another of my Halloween cards done and ready for mailing but would also see how many Halloween Challenges were out there that I could enter this card into!

The first Challenge was for DZ Doodles of course. Their challenge this week was a color challenge using the colors Black and Orange. Your creation does not have to be a Halloween card but hey, it's the season right? I still have a few more I need to make - so this worked out perfectly for me!
You can find their challenge here! http://dzdoodles.com/

I love your card! And thanks for the coloring tip of using C7 with the black multiliner, instead of using just the black marker. Your way adds shading and dimension. Looks great!
