Welcome! I've been trying to get a few cards made before I leave tomorrow morning for my Dallas Copic Certification classes. And since I'm already going to be in Texas, I'm planning to visit my sister's family in Abilene; I have two nieces there, ages 6 and 3, and a nephew, age 1. We'll have a good old time! :-) Thinking of the littles made me want to pull out a whimsical stamp set again. I chose one of my MFT Birdie Brown stamp sets, You're Super. And since black hair is my Copic hair nemesis, I decided to try her with black hair!
Shown above are the Copic Sketch markers that I used to color Supergirl. I loved how her boots turned out! I finally figured out a good way to make them shine: One strong line of C9 on one side, then from the opposite direction a quickly graduated blend, with a strip of white paper left between the two. That's my *best* shine tip!
I used a Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles die template to get the pierced edge on both the the card front and the inner sentiment panel. And I airbrushed the background using Copic R85 in the Center, and B95 radiating out from the center. paired with MFT's Sun Ray Stencil (out of stock at the moment). In addition to being black-hair challenged, I'm also sequin challenged. . . but, hey, I tried! :-)
Well, that's it for today. I need to start packing. Hope to see some of you in Dallas this weekend!
