My FIRST Post!
After much nudging by friends, and fear that "I don't know how to blog", I am making a commitment to start!
I have found a love of coloring and crafting. I didn't even know about coloring with Copic Markers until Wendy Ramlakhan from SugarPea Designs introduced me to this addictive habit!!
(Thank you, Wendy!)
I have much to learn about blogging, and coloring, but the journey is fun!
Coloring is a great stress reliever. Designing the cards, maybe not as much. LOL! I am a slow crafter. It takes me a while to "see" the card in my mind.
Here is the first card I ever made, with the very patient assistance of Wendy.
I used the "My Hero" clear stamp set from SugarPea Designs. This was my very first introduction to coloring with Copic Sketch Markers. I fell in love!!!! Oh the things you can do with a few little markers! Wendy taught me how to give his jeans a more "denim" look by laying a piece of cut up jeans on top after coloring. It gave them a more textured look.
We lifted our Super Dad off the page with a little foam sticker. And applied some super hero theme Washi tape. So simple!!!
The phrase was embossed with white embossing powder.
Trust me when I say, I learned A LOT on this day! And, it's what got me hooked!
But, I must give credit where credit is due! Please go see all the CUTE clear stamps at Wendy's webpage! SugarPea Designs
Here's to a new year, and a new Blog!!!
