What a beautiful day!


I made this whimsical card for DESIGN in PAPERS this week. And if you think I’m nagging about the great Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils I actually did not use them this time. I used Copics. Why did I do that? Well I went to take the last two classes for my ECCP Copic certification this weekend and I needed to practice before I went since i have not been using my Copics at all since I got the new pencils. Guess what? It was really hard switching back! So, if you want easy, fast, fun coloring go for the Spectrum Noir Pencils. If you want more challenging, slower, fun coloring go for alcohol based markers like Copics. I like both. And you can combine them. Wich I have yet to try. I will do that, maby for next weeks post.

The rest of the card is pretty stright forward. Some lovely new papers from Studio Calico, some enamel dots and a glitter embossed strip of paper I had left over from another project. And a stamp from my stash that I think works well with the stamp from Stampendous.  Fun!

Over and out from me. See you soon, I do have a bunch of cards and some pictures from the Copics classes I wanted to show you but they are all in my new computer currently being fixed. And the cards are on their way to UK, lucky them. They will be showed on trade shows around the world, like CHA. Lucky them. I want to go too :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
