Here's to You

After two and half years of coloring with Copics, I finally had to order some re-inkers. I've had two of the earthtones that I use for skin to go completely dry in the past couple of weeks. That figures since I do use the them the most. The problem is no one carries re-inkers here and I had to order online. While I'm waiting on the order, I'm going to have to get real creative with my skin tones! It happened at the right time though as the price increases will take effect August 1.

I am loving the October Afternoon 5 and Dime 8x8 pad. I let it lay here for two weeks before cutting into but now I've made a card with it three weeks in a row. I stamped My Favorite Things Fred Bear in Flight onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, then colored with Copics. I used some Liquid Applique on the cuffs and collar of the jacket to give it a wool look. I followed this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club (MFTWSC29) sketch for the layout.

  4. Nancy, your cards are so cute! I have been following your blog for a while now because I've moved to Mountain Brook which I think is not far from you!
