Copic Creations Challenge 23-Greens

Well, you can take the woman out of New Mexico, but you can't take New Mexico out of the woman. When I saw that the challenge at Copic Creations was to feature green Copic markers on a card, I immediately thought of coloring green chiles. Of course, I thought my finished card looked more like jalapenos than chiles, but I think that is my years in New Mexico showing through. They take their green chile seriously!

For my card, I used images from Impression Obsession (Chilis D2213, WP16 Sentiments 1) and paper from My Little Shoebox. I colored the chilies with a combination of G17 Forest Green (I think this one made it look like a jalapeno-too dark), YG03 Yellow Green, YG06 Yellowish Green, YG11 Mignonette, and C3 Cool Grey #3.

Here is a close up of the coloring:

Of course, now I am really in the mood for some green chile stew. Sigh.
