Tomorrow is my Advanced Copic class and I am very excited! I really enjoyed the beginner class and learned so much so I can't wait to see what I am going to learn in this one.
Samantha was over here the other day and was making a card for her pen pal. Normally when she makes something, she want's a little help with the layout and picking out which colors and embellishments to use. I think she is gaining more confidence in what she creates though, because with this one she showed me two pieces of yellow paper and asked me to pick the best match and then while she was putting it together she asked me to find the yellow and black ribbon so she could have a bow. I had the photo corners sitting on my desk left over from the Halloween card the other day and she picked them up, placed them in the corners and said "i think those look good there, can I have them?" Her image is from The Angel Company set, Buggy Boxes, it was stamped with Memento ink and then she colored it in with Copics and a glitter gel pen on the wings. Papers are from The Paper Studio and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. For her birthday, Samantha's mom got her a huge pack of assorted colors of card stock and like a true crafter, she spent almost as much time organizing her new papers as she did making this card!
