Hello there. Having time to craft today, I started off with one project – and came up with this one. Does that happen to anyone else?
It’s only a few more days until I begin my first challenge as Design Team member for the ABC Christmas Challenge, but in the meantime I have this card for you:
I was looking for some holly stamps – for some reason I don’t have many that I could put my hands on – then I remembered my Catherine Pooler ‘box’. I have a whole storage box where I put my Catherine Pooler stamps and dies – there is a bunch of stamps I’ve never used, and I came across this die set from the Winterhaven collection.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m learning all about alcohol markers – Spectrum Illustrators and Copics. I recently bought some Copics from Ebay – and I really, really see the attraction. What amazing pens these are – totally fallen for them. And – I think I’ve developed a ‘full set’ syndrome……help me now!
I’ve been doing a little internet searching and currently reading all about Copics from the Copic Marker Tutorial page, and the Kit and Clowder tutorials. Still not feeling relaxed and chilled when colouring, but enjoying the process of learning.
This card is made from the die cut wreath, with the individual parts coloured simply with Copics, and adhered to the card base.
The sentiment is cut from a Copic coloured piece of card, with several layers underneath for just that little dimension.
I may have to return to my craft room to complete the project I was initially going to do – I think I can manage that. 🙂 🙂
I shall be entering this card into the following challenges:
Stamplorations CAS card challenge – CAS with option to use green
CASology – CAS Holly
