It's been a while. But I'm happy to say I got some great stamps from STAMPlorations and picked up some Copic markers and have given Copic coloring (read: shading) a try. Not easy at all! Here's one card for you using the new set from Dee, Balloons and Banners.
Plain white cardbase. Stamped the balloons and sentiment with Memento. Grabbed some blue green (BG) and red (R) Copics and gave the shading technique a go. Much more practice necessary. And better quality CS, but my Neenah is back in Germany :( A strip of PP added to the bottom completed my CAS birthday card.
Come on back on Monday for a week of fun with the other new sets from the STAMPlorations July release. Good stuff, folks. And send a prayer Shery's way for an easy delivery of her little bundle of joy who is to make an appearance real soon.
