Life Will Be Better With Copics
See... this is why I NEED Copic markers! Try as I might to blend and shade, my Stampin Up markers just aren't going to get the job done which is why I ended up highlighting with a gel pen. Life is going to be so much easier with Copics! I cannot wait to redo this card with Copics!!! Can you hear me pouting??? Hahahaha, I'm counting the days. In the meantime, I spent the day today trying to work with what I had (a WHOLE LOT of Stampin Up markers and ink pads) and this actually turned out pretty cute. I love the whole "Party In The Park" theme. I love how some projects start off one way and end up going a whole other direction. I started with this little guy (From a Greeting Farm discontinued set called Happy Chef) with a chef's hat and a cupcake, but then when it came time to decide a background, I hit a brick wall. So I grabbed some cardstock and started doodling and the park scene just sort of took form. Well there you go! Nix the hat, add a present and have the tag of the present JUMP out at you with the greeting and DONE! Yep... cute will be WICKED AWESOME when I redo this with Copics! Yes, I'm still pouting.
