Hello! Here is my submission for today's sketch challenge. As soon as I saw it I got this image in my head. I don't have any weddings or bridal showers coming up so I tried to resist and go another direction, but as you know I have been having some mojo issues, so I ended up deciding not to temp the mojo gods and just went with it, and am glad I did:0 I stamped the image with Versamark and Ranger Brushed Corduroy onto decorative paper and then embossed it with clear ep. I colored the image with my Copic Markers (E51, E33). The backed panels were stamped and embossed also with the SU! En Francais BG Stamp. I added some sewing which is intentionally wonky to add to the charm of the card (I am going to keep saying that until I learn to sew straight perfect line, okay).
I know I said I was going to show you some stuff with the Copics, but I think I have something better. Marianne, the person who did our Copic Marker Certification Training, has a blog that really shows and covers EVERYTHING I learned in class plus more. Her blog is I Like Markers, what else would it be called? I think most of the stamping planet probably know about this blog already, but I just went to it yesterday and will continue to go back. Tell me what you think. I will totally show you stuff I do if you can't see what is going on there, but I cannot stand to reinvent the marker, er wheel.
In case you were wondering why not so many posts, I spent Monday painting my son's room. It looks pretty cool. Sorta Tommy Hilfiggerish, but I am not sure if I want to show you picks because he decidedly has his own decorating preferences now (he's 12) and I pretty much have to walk away and let him be. I am going to do my daughter's this weekend. I have also been working on some new stuff for My Favorite Things, which I think you are going to LOVE!
Have a fabulous day, thanks for stamping by!
