I am usually pretty pressed for time on Tuesday nights (I create mostly in the evenings) but when you have awesome products it helps. I love that Clearly Besotted gave me the cute backdrop with the stamps which of course extends it uses. I also just made the holly leaves in her hair into pedals. Finding the right sentiment was easy, just grabbed my Hero Arts bin of sentiments and these (which I got as part of a class on Online Card Classes) were perfect.

I used both Copic markers and Colored pencils to color in the images then inked the clouds using the My Favorite Things stencil. I think what I liked best was the use of grey on the mushrooms and rocks. I mixed cool and warm greys to achieve the depth. Anyway, that’s today! Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment on your favorite coloring technique!

Online Card Classes

Okay, I have made thousands of cards.  For over twenty years I have been making things with paper.  I have taught classes all over the country and I can tell you this,  I NEVER stop learning.  That is what makes this craft so much fun!  Some of the best teachers are beginners by the way.

Anyway, I love taking classes especially when they are classes taught by very talented people.  I love Online Card Classes.  Jennifer McGuire and many other artists.  Yesterday, I was watching one of the videos and Jennifer McGuire showed a great technique it was so cute and I was playing with using my “need to use these someday” stamps and BAM!  Using that technique popped in my head and I LOVE how it came out.

Here is the card, and let me encourage you to hop over to OCC (click here)  and check out the Stamp Happy Class or for that matter any or all of the classes they have.  ALL of them are great!  Wonderful PDF class guides, lots of videos, fantastic projects,  etc.

Get over there and check out the class and learn some fun techniques!
