Good Morning! Today I want to share with you a card that I received recently in the mail from mom. I LOVE this card! It is glittery, it is sweet, it is beautiful! Plus, mom has used a mermaid image from one of Kraftin' Kimmies more recent releases by Annie Rodrigue. What more can anyone ask ;D
Lots of details, too! She has twine wrapped around lace, topped with a metal flower and leaves, and just a scattering of pearls in the corner. AND Mom really knows how to work those Copics ;D
Speaking of Copics, I am having my first ever Copic Primer class tomorrow afternoon at China Phoenix 2. I am thrilled because this will be very different from teaching folks to make an actual project. It will be more educational as I will be talking about the tools, what makes the markers special, decoding the color wheel and the numbering system, basic coloring, shading and shadowing techniques, and how to use the sometimes challenging Colorless Blender. I am really looking forward to this class and hope I have additional opportunities to teach it again.
By the way, just a quick announcement...I am thrilled to share with you that I am officially a Bombshell Girl! I'm on the Bombshell Stamps Design Team! If you scroll through my older posts you'll see that I am a HUUUUUGE fan of Bombshell Stamps and frequently use them in my classes at CP2. These are truly some of my favorite images and so very different in style from other stuff I've seen. They are reminiscent of vintage tattoo art, which is great for cards for both men and women. Women love them for their aesthetic beauty and men love them for...their...er...umm...okay, they love them because they're HOT!! LOL! It's not just about the bombshells, though, check out the site and you will find vintage hot rods, motorcycles, Dia de los Muertos, and Sacred Heart images, too. Each and everyone of them wonderful in their own way. The lovely Bombshell DT is listed in my sidebar, so be sure to stop by their blogs and show them some love ;D
I won't have a card tomorrow, but Sunday means there's a new challenge at Kenny K, so stop by to see what I've cooked up for that. It's going to be a scorcher...LOL! Also, Monday is my day on the Lala Land Crafts Blog, so I will have a card featuring one of Lala's adorable new images, so come back if you have a hankering for something sweet ;D Have a crafty weekend!
