A card and a Giveaway
I am sharing a 'Thank you card' that I made last night.
As a new and proud owner of the fabulous Copic markers, I have yet need to learn all its wonderful magic. A Copic class is on my 'to-do list', but time is an elusive commodity.
I tried different permutations to my approach--accenting the outline with a grey border; and juxtaposing greys and yellows. The above is what came forth from my brew. The Hero Arts rose background was stamped with my Jenni Bowlin Lemon drop dye ink, and my sentiment was stamped in Memento London Fog. The yellow card stock was Paper Trey Ink Lemon tart. The grey card stock was from Michael's. It is lighter than Paper trey ink smokey shadow. I am looking for a grey card stock that is a touch lighter than this. Any suggestions out there?
Now the giveaway.
It includes a copy of Jan/Feb issue of Paper Crafts magazine, which has my first published card. I was so thrilled to see it on the magazine. It was my first time submitting to the magazine, and one of the four cards submitted was picked up!
The other crafting goodies that included are: Amuse studio Peace background stamp, Jenni Bowlin vintage-style wooden spools, Jenni Bowlin plain chipboard elements (star), Jenni Bowlin classic foam stamps, American Crafts Thickers (chit chat), and some SRM stickers.
Leave a comment here by Dec 27th, and I will select one random winner. It opens to everyone, including my international friends!
Have a wonderful holiday season everyone! Pin It
