Here is another card from the Copic 201 - Greeting Farms Class for your viewing pleasure.
Isn't she just the cutest?? I especially love her wavy hair and colourful outfit....come to think of it I think I wore the exact same thing back then too!!
My little tip for this card? When you close cut a stamped image, use a black marker on the sides of the cutout so that you don't see the white sides of the card stock. It gives the image a much cleaner look.
"The classroom" is a great website by Ellen Hutson and friends with lots of tutorials and ideas for all things cards/scrapbooking. If you subscribe to the newsletter each posting will come directly to your inbox.
I've just returned from the almost dead. What I mean by that is that this past Friday and Saturday I participated in a 24 hour non stop MS crop and even though I am exhausted from not sleeping for 24 hours it was totally worth it. Lots of fun/laughs/giddiness and prizes AND most importantly it has inspired me to blog.
ALL good things don't cha think?
Now, I have to clarify that I didn't stay awake for the full 24 hours - I took a nap for about 2 hours on Saturday.
What did I work on during the crop? Well class stuff of course!
Here is a sneak peak of a Copic Card Class that I'm teaching over at Scrapalicious this month. Hope to see you there!
Ever been to sea Billy? These are photos from 2007 and yes, I'm petting a shark. It was a nurse shark though and come on - if little kids will do it why won't I?? I must say though - I had to wash my hands immediately afterwards!! I'm a real germiphobe and those sharks were wet and fishy.
Back to using up stuff from the stash and this is photo paper bought in my early days of scrapping.
