I’m getting a little bit better!

Finally starting to get a little better with copics since I was shading challenged LOL! But as Suzanne Dean always says “PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE” and that is what I have been doing. This card was made for one of the little ones in my apt buildings 3rd birthday. I have to be honest with you and say ” I LOVE THIS CARD”. So it looks like I am not just getting better with copics but also getting better with designs! For that I have to thank all the excellent designers out there that share their talents every day with us so THANK YOU! Not sure how many of you know it but Suzanne and her daughter Alexa was here in San Jose last week and we had soooo much fun heading south to Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Carmel. Just way way way tooo much fun! Anyway here is my card for today:
Of course I colored the little cutie “dress up Marci” from LaLa Land Crafts (who I also met while Suzanne was here,  love her) on Cryogen White.  LaLaLand Crafts also offers several stamps in a digital form which is what I used for this image since I didn’t already have dress up Marci in a rubber stamp but knew she was EXACTLY the image I wanted to use.  I picked her because the little girl that I was making the card for is always walking around with her Mom or sometimes her Dad’s shoes on and loves to dress up so this was the perfect image for her!  The base sheet is Amethyst Mica/Metallic and the mats were cut out of BASIS 80# Purple.  Not exactly sure where the designer paper (yes I am getting way addicted to dp too LOL) came from.  Hope you enjoyed, do you think I am improving???  BTW  Just found LaLaLand craft stamps on sale for 40% (generally unheard of) at Scrap-Mart.com so rush over and purchase some, I am heading there right now!  All their stamps are 40% until April 29th….I LOVE Scrap-Mart.com except don’t they know I am an addict and have NO self control when it comes to a good sale LOL!
