Big Doins! My First Share-worthy Copic project!

Well Friends,

I have been slacking because I have been busy doing workshops on the go with people, sick and of course.... learning how to use Copics! Well it is a steep learning curve and I still have a ton to learn, but I think I finally have a project that is worth sharing with you.

 Well this picture isn't as good as it looked on the screen.... oh well.. hides how much I have to learn! This is a super cute little image from House Mouse Designs. I have stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, and because it is on Close to my Heart cardstock I gave it a zap with the heat gun. Now there is a ton of use of the colourless blender as my copic collection is still pretty spotty, but it will get there. I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from CTMH (probably the best cartridge I have found, over 700 images!!!) To cut both the card bases and the little egg shape for on top. I then ran the top egg through the cuttlebug with a pretty flower embossing folder I have long forgotten the name of. The flowers are from CTMH, and I have stamped at "Happy Easter" Sentiment on it! I love how that looks. Now because my crazy wouldn't let me leave the little hole in the center of the flower I covered it with a little bitty stick on pearl. As you can probably tell from the shadows, the House mouse images are fussy cut, then 3d foam squared for some dimension.

One of these is for my gorgeous grandmother who turned 84 last week (don't worry, she also got a birthday card but she loved it so much I wanted to make her another). Who would like the other one?!? I mean, yeah mail!!
