My first Copic card

I took the Copic certification class last week, but didn't use them for my OWH Blog Hop card. After seeing Karen Howard's card using her Copics (she was in the same class), I decided to make another card and break out the Copics. I still have alot to learn, I need more practice coloring hair and I didn't even bother with shadowing on this card, but it was fun to try.
The stamp is a digi stamp from Just Some Lines named EmoSpring and the pearls on her dress are white Enamel Accents. The sentiment was printed from my computer. Everything else is Copics.
Hair: Y21, Y26
Skin: E000, E02, E21
Dress: B01, B05, B06
Flower: Y15, Y26, E44, 100
Shoes: E44, E49
Grass and flower stem: G12, G14
Cardstock borders: B05, B06

Thanks for the inspiration Karen. Thanks for stopping by.

OWH Memorial Day Weekend Hop

Welcome to the OWH Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop. If you'd like to start at the beginning, click on the blinkie above.

 We are all creating Missing You cards and here is mine. It's an A2 sized card on a white base. I've added blue cardstock from my stash that I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder from the Preserves Companion set, paper ribbon cut in half lengthwise is from Anna Griffin and the sentiment I printed from my computer using the Marker Felt font.

What's a blog hop without blog candy? I'll be randomly selecting one commenter to win a Seweasy Stitch Piercer from We R Memory Keepers. All you have to do is leave a comment and a way to contact you. I love finding new blogs, so if you have a blog and would like for me to check your blog out, include your blog address in your comment. Thanks for stopping by.

Your next stop on the hop is the very talented PAULA.

Cynthia's sewing room

I created this shadow box as a birthday gift for a friend who loves sewing. I loved how cute it turned out so I'm entering it in the Simply Sunday's challenge over at Getting Cricky with KAndrews.The shadow box is 7"x9.5" and comes in a pack of 3 at Michaels. Here are the individual elements:Wallpaper: DCWV's The Green Stack
Wood flooring and door: DCWV's Textures and Finishes. For the wood flooring, I scored at varying lengths to give it a real hardwood floor look. All the elements were cut at 5 inches. The door was cut from the Wild Card cartridge. The dress form is from Forever Young cartridge with the frame cut from black heavy cardstock and the dress form is from Wausau Paper's Crinkles specialty paper. The sewing machine was cut from the Country Life cartridge from the same heavy cardstock and the accent silver pieces were from my stash. The desk was cut from brown Core'dinations paper and sanded to look a bit distressed. The rug was cut from an oval nestie from Tim Holtz paper and run thru the Cuttlebug with the Textile folder. The sentiment was printed from my computer and then cut with a nestie and inked with Fired Brick distress ink and "hung" with a piece of jewelry wire. Thanks for stopping by.
