Layout and Card using Sketch #13
On this card I used copics. As a recently new card maker there is enough to learn.
Now with copics I need not only to learn how to use them....
I need to learn how to present them on a finished card.
Hope you will follow me on this journey.
February Sketchathon #13... all of Lucy's sketches are so good...
they are fun and inspirational.

Simply Scrapping DT submissions

This fab sketch below was used on this cute layout.
Used glimmer mist, punches, pearls, handmade weaved heart,
stitching, brads and rippled ribbon.

Used the card sketch below on this card...
handcutting, stitching, pearls,
brads and circle printing on vellum.
These are two pieces of new work that I submitted for the
Simply Scrapping Crafts Design Team.

Copics.. just learning but lovin' it

Most of these challenges came from
My Sketch World.
I have been trying to force myself to use copics so I get better with them.
So far I have only watched an online tutorial of their use.
It would be fun to take a class to learn the techniques and use of them.
