A few weeks ago I was asked by Mary Giemza to join her and design for...
When I finally quit squealing, I jumped at the chance and said, "YES!!" I've been a huge fan of Mary's and the entire DT at Copic Creations before I even had Copic's of my own.
About 2 years ago, I was doing a online search for invitation ideas for Brooke's 1st birthday and stumbled upon a card that took my breath away. The creator (Mary) said she colored the image with something called Copic markers?!?! I started doing a little research and I came across the Copic Creations Blog. So After 10 years of absolutely REFUSING to get involved with stamping, I broke down and bought $300 worth of markers, a few stamps and the rest is history. Believe me when I say this is an amazing honor to be asked to design for her and her team. If you aren't familiar with Copic Creations then you must check them out...It is a wealth of information on all things Copic.
But today is not only a big day for me...
It's Copic Creations 2nd Blogoversary!! And you can find all the info and how to join in and win some AMAZING prizes for yourself HERE.
The challenge...Vintage or Distressed Copic Coloring
And since EVERY first card I have ever done for any DT has been WAY out of my comfort zone...today is no exception. LOL :) I stared at the gorgeous vintage stamps I was geneously given by Crafty Secrets to work with for DAYS having NO idea what to do with them!! Finally I decided I had better get to work and just do something!! I was lucky and the card just seemed to make itself :) I was thrilled to discover that one of the fairies in the Fairy Set fit perfectly inside the arch from the Art Studio set. Masking the two images, I "sat" her on the inside and sponged Antique Linen distressing ink while the image was still in the Labels 8 die. I then stamped another image and layered her wings for dimension; which I lightly sparkled with Shimmerz Pixie Dust. I was going to machine stitch the paper panels too but thought it was best not to tempt fate!! LOL
If you leave me a comment on this post you will be entered to win this stamp set from me.
