Tomorrow I am driving to Glen Allan, VA for the Copic Intermediate certification class. Even though I have learned everything I know about Copics from Suzanne Dean and Colleen Schaan I need the certification to obtain a position teaching Copics at my local community college and Scrap booking stores:)
Do you know what TTCRD stands for? It's abbreviations stand for "Through The Craft Room Door'" an online digital crafting magazine started by the talented Suzanne Dean and Marti Wills. This week the TTCRD challenge is CAS with a sentiment. The random winner will win a $20.00 Gift Certificate to SCACD where you can purchase many of your crafting needs.
My birthday card was created using "Pine and Lake Silhouette" by Northwood Rubber Stamps. I love Northwood stamps esp. the ones with scenery. I sponge ink my colors using Memento Inks. First I sponged Cantaloupe on the left hand side just right behind the tree line and made sure everything I did on top, I also did on the bottom to make it look like an identical reflection in the water. Around the Cantaloupe I sponged Angel Pink. Lulu next spreading it over the rest of the image and added a little bit of Grape Jelly on the edges. I love sponge coloring! It took me five minutes! I originally did it on Cryogen paper and hated it. The beautiful sparkles in the paper are awesome for copic coloring but not sponging. The A2 size card was embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folder and sorry it doesn't have a name on it.
The Baltimore Rodeo Retreat details are all on
Lots of fun and classes
