A simple place to leave my thoughts... and crafts.

Finally got the Butterfly set and Year in Flowers: Violets inky today. Played with the Copics (and ordered a bunch more). I have a ways to go on Copics 101 but that is OK. I'm pretty happy with my amateur attempt. I know it takes practice and time. Very simple card to make. I decided I wanted a white base and since I wanted to stamp in Plum Pudding color for the background yet still wrap a ribbon, I matted it white on white. Gives it a nice clean look. Colored the 1/4" ribbon with Copic V06. Looks marvelous. If you haven't colored a ribbon with Copics yet, do! I love that any Copic color I own is now a ribbon color I own, too. WooHoo.
Though the flower looked quite lovely without the butterfly, since I made it... and colored it... by gosh, I was going to use it.
Hope everyone has a very crafty day... if not today, then soon.
