I miss you so much!!

I am really making a commitment to play more, I really missed having ink and glue all over my hands LOL!  I am sincerely trying to create 2 designs a week instead of maybe 2 a month.  I am really really trying to get better with copics too.  I have now taken 3 of Suzanne Dean’s online Copic classes and have really learned a lot.  Suzanne also offers many free videos so if you are just learning copics I HIGHLY recommend Suzanne to learn with.  I have the best of all worlds since I have an Apple TV so I can watch her online videos on my big screen so all is good!  I have watched them over and over again and I finally think I got it!!  But only time will tell.  Here is one of my first attempts at shading and adding some dimension to my coloring.  I have a long way to go but Suzanne always says practice practice practice.

The very adorable image is from Faerie Song Rubber Art Stamps.  I couldn’t find this exact stamp so maybe she is out of stock (I hope not, she is soooo cute).  She was colored with copics on PaperTemptress’s very popular Cryogen White Iridescent (which is a dream to color on).  The base and mat are both cut out of Snow Cone 100# Pop Tones (which is on sale for 2o% off for a limited time).  I so love this color!  I also stepped out of my box and used some designer paper.  This sheet came out of the Sweet Fairy Collection from Susanna’s Custom Art and Cards Designs.  I wanted to keep it simple so just added the little pink roses to the side.  I think this card is really sweet, which was exactly the look I was going for.  Hope you enjoy looking at it as I enjoyed making it!

BTW:  you are more than welcome to give me trouble if I don’t meet my commitment of 2 cards a week, sometimes I need all the pushing I can get LOL!  (But I never need pushing to get out my copics and color)!
