I spent the most incredible weekend taking the Standard and Intermediate Copic Certification classes with the most wonderful instructor, Cindy Lawrence. I learned so much, but now I want to go back and redo all the cards I've already done because Cindy taught us how to make better choices in colors, shading and highlighting...among a million other techniques.
I NEED to practice all these new techniques before I upload any new Copic-colored cards, so today I'll just share what I've been doing for the last few weeks. I've been having a blast making rolled and layered flower cards...die-cutting, some embossing, but no coloring.
Because of the thickness of some of the flowers, I decided to mail one to myself to see how it would survive Post Office handling. I placed it in a slightly larger envelope so I could put a cardstock collar around the flowers to protect them. Little did I think it would cost $1.95 to mail it!!!! Thankfully, it did arrive undamaged, but I think I'll have to save those cards for hand-delivery...either that, or take out a second mortgage!
In any event, here are some of the cards I made. All of the materials are listed on my Splitcoast gallery where my screen name is carleneanne.
