Thursday (tomorrow) is the big day -- my craft room base cabinets are being installed! So right now my craft room is a big empty (well, half of it is) and what hasn't been stuffed into the craft room annex is still in bags from this past weekend's crafty retreat. Let's just say I won't be stamping for a few days, so you'll get to see some of the projects I made last weekend instead. I hope to be back in business by Sunday or Monday.
Here is a card of which I'm quite proud:
I bought this Paper Smooches set for two reasons. First, the bouquet came already built for me. Being of low patience, I'm not a big fan of the builder stamp sets. Second, it let me practice my Copic coloring.
I used three reds, three yellows and two greens, and outlined it all with B000. It was originally stamped on a panel, but I stamped the "grateful" crooked. I die-cut the bouquet, then practiced stamping the sentiment -- took four more tries to get it straight. ;/ Then I just stuck the bouquet to the panel.
I colored the edges of another white panel with one of the red Copics, stuck the layers together, and called it done.
I will say one of my peeps stopped by and suggested I make the dark green darker, so I did. It really made a difference, too! I need to be bolder with my dark color choices, and I played with that idea on a few other projects I'll show you throughout this week.
Thanks for stopping by!
