Copic Creations Anniversary


Happy April! It's time for another Copic Creations challenge. Mary, our DT leader, has done a fabulous job of seeking out sponsors and coming up with themes for our challenges. Mary, you're awesome, girl! Today is officially our 2nd Anniversary, but we're postponing our celebration until the June 1 post where we'll have several sponsors and lots of blog candy. For this challenge we want to say a big thank you to Crafty Secrets for sponsoring our challenge. I am using an image from one of their sweet, Medium sets called "Little Boy." The theme for this challenge is to use our favorite technique. That was a bit of a head-scratcher for me, but I realized that I like to use my die cuts and cut out my images to work with them when they "overflow" the die shape. This card is sort of doing the reverse. I didn't cut out the image but the die cut had to go "behind the image." That meant that I had to cut out a portion of the little boy image so that I could slide the die shape underneath and then create the opening for the sentiment. I have two sweet little grandsons with birthdays coming up in June, so this is going to be for one of them. I'm not going to list all of the Copic colors I used this time, but if you're interested just e-mail me and I'll be glad to tell you. Each time I post I'm hopeful that I'll have more frequent posts for you. I have several occasions coming up that require cards, so maybe I'll surprise you and have lots to share. Be sure to check out what the other DT members have created and find out what their favorite technique is. Thank you for your faithful visits and I hope you have a wonderful month of April.

Karen, you've made this Little Boy card image look awesome. I especially love how you allowed the image to go over the edge of your die cut message layer. Cool technique!

Gorgeous card Karen, love the beautifully coloured cute image and how you've used the 'out of the box' technique in reverse - can't wait to give this a go although I'll probably ended up amputating something!!
I'm glad I've introduced you to Teddies Bo and Bea, they are delightful and an absolute dream to colour.
