Hey! I slept in a bit this morning after a long but wonderfully fun day at Crop Circles teaching 2 Copic Classes. I was so inspired by the amount of talent and creativity that was all gathered in one room...it is so true what "they" say about teaching...you do walk away feeling like you learned far more than you imparted, smile!
I really had a great time yesterday and Helen, Ted, Cathy and Henry did such a fabulous job hosting me and all the ladies! I'm looking forward to going back to Crop Circles next Saturday to teach another Copic class...see the class samples and get all the dets here! If you live in the Peterborough/Durham or surrounding, why not join us?!
So this morning after I got a cup of coffee, I headed down to my craft room and made this card using an adorable Pure Innocence Girl digi stamp that I bought from Heather Ellis' Etsy Shop a few weeks ago. I just adore these PI girls and I broke down and ordered some the MFT PI stamps too! I was so excited to actually use a digi stamp stress free! I finally bought a new Epson printer and the ink is compatible with my Copics, YAY!!! No more fussin' and mussin' with my old printer and digi images...it is sooooo nice!
When I saw this PI girl with chick I just knew I had to have her! How adorable is she?! Perfect for an Easter card! I love her Easter hat!
I used the great sketch that they have over at Friday Sketchers this week! I made my card 6x6 from American Crafts cardstock and used BG Lemonade pp. I paper pieced this little girls dress and coloured the rest of the image with my Copics and Prismacolor Pencils. Then I cut out the image with my Nesties and inked with Spun Sugar Distress ink. I embellished with some American crafts ribbon, Prima flowers, BG buttons that I tied with soft suede cord that I had in my stash and a few gems. The sentiment is from a MFT Easter set called Eggstra Special!
Here is the inside....this sentiment and chick is from the Eggstra Special MFT set. I stamped the chick on Yellow BG patterned paper and cut him out and pop-dotted him!
Well, thanks for stopping by having a wee peek at my card!
