Hello, and Happy Tuesday! I am so super-excited to share with you today, I'm just about ready to pop! I mentioned here a few days ago that I had just completed my Copic Intermediate Certification and I have spent much of my crafting time since then "practicing" the techniques we learned in that class. I have been having so much fun and it's been about all I've wanted to do for the last couple of weeks (sorry, laundry… see ya later, feather duster! :)
I received in the mail a couple of days ago this stamp by artist Hannah Lynn called "Bookworm Fairy" and I am in love… She is so beautiful and sooo much fun to color! You'll find that this card is definitely a departure for me, but I have to tell you, I'm just crazy about it!
I thought I'd present the card to you in stages so that you can see the coloring as I go… soooo, without further ado…
Before I go any further, I must confess that the image you've seen to this point is not the one you're about to see on my card. After I completely finished the one above, I masked it in order to color my background, which I totally, irrevocably botched. Badly. So, after a short, but intense, few moments of "losing it," I set out to do it all over again. And better this time.
Isn't she beautiful? If you love to color, I highly recommend Hannah Lynn's artwork. So fanciful and fun! :)
I am linking this card up to two Moxie Fab Challenges: "Focal Point" and the "Gallon/Quart/Pint" Challenge. You, too, can play along until Monday, September 24th. :)
Additionally, I used this week's sketch from RetroSketches as the jumping-off point for my design.
Thank you for stopping by… I hope you like this card! I had so much fun making it -- twice! haha! :)
Talk to you soon!
