Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Cool Shades

Happy holiday Monday to all my Canadian friends. Welcome to the inaugural Paper Sparks Cool Shades Challenge!  This week we are challenging you to use some fresh 'Candylicious' colours!

This was definitely a challenge for me, with two shades of blue.  Decided to use my Get Outta Town set as I thought it would work perfectly with these colours.

I used my Copics to colour the images and then used the blender pen to give the 'texture' on the coconut.

Be sure to check out the Paper Smooches Sparks blog for all the details and the rest of the design team for some amazing inspiration!

Hope you can play along.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
