Valentines!



I was sitting with Zoe this morning who has teacher training day so no school and she asked if you could colour one of my stamps. I stamped up Tilda with Puppy for each of us and started playing around with my Copics. I dont usually do alot of blending and am used to the Promarkers at the moment as I've generally been using them over the last few months, but found Copics remain wetter for longer and blending is so much easier. I dont use the blender pen much, cant get on with it. Used the Cuddly Horse which is from the same set. Gone over area's with a clear Sakura Pen. The papers are all BG, Wassail, Figgy and Blush. I used my MM Siice again, god, I love this machine so much, its my best friend at the moment. I cut the Scallop Circles, "Love" and Hearts with the machine and it glides threw Bazzill no problem. Am still using the CC repositionable spray, not clogged up once. New this could card could meet a few challenges as its all about valentines at the moment and found this fits in with this weeks, Papertake Weekly (Hearts and Flowers), Our Creative Corner (Hearts), Everybody Art (Valentines), Stamp Something (Valentines), Colour Throwdown and I used the Sketch from Friday Sketchers. Took my a couple of hours to complete but am truly pleased with the end result. The picture quality isn't brilliant but the best I could get. Now I'm not sure what to do with it next!

Such a sweet card Claire, Tilda looks adorable! Funny you should say that about the blendability of the Copic, I've found the same thing. I've just abandoned my Promarkers because everything was looking really flat. Don't worry, I can't get on with the blender pen either! ~x~
