FWF - and a Copic Class!
Hurray! It's Friday! And a very special Friday at that! Back in July, for my birthday, my husband paid to send me to the Copic basic certification class and the Copic intermediate certification class in Minneapolis, MN. Those classes are today and tomorrow. Yes! I'm so excited! Yesterday, I drove 2 1/2 hours to get to the hotel/conference center where the classes will be held. I'm camped out and ready! Let the fun begin!
And, speaking of fun, I have a card to share with you today that was a lot of fun to make!
Last Sunday, we got together with my in-laws at a restaurant, and they picked up the tab. I figured the least I could do was make them a pretty card. So, Monday, after work, I whipped together this little pretty for them:
I used the Unity set, "Butterfly Beauty" on this. It was one of the first Unity sets I ever bought, in the old brown boxes. I love the 4 butterflies in this set. They all emboss beautifully, and that's what I did with this one. I heat embossed on black cardstock using clear detail embossing powder. Then, I mixed Perfect Pearls and water together in four different colors, and painted them on the butterfly. The areas that were heat embossed resist the color, and this is the result. Neat, huh? I added the sentiment (a CTMH retired set), and some Close To My Heart bling, and voila, the thank you card was complete and ready to go. Well, it was after I rounded 2 corners and wrote a message inside.
Now it's time to practice my Copic coloring skills. Sooo stoked for this!!! Have a great weekend everyone!
