Paris in Pink

Talk about pink right?? While on vacation, I took along my Crafty Secrets stamps, a black ink pad and a few Copic markers. So I spent a little time creating some collage images. I used the French Mail and Cherub set from Crafty Secrets. I wanted to create a *postcard* feel these these cards and these CS sets work great for that look. I also bought some new pink and black Anna Griffin patterned paper at Archiver's while in Colorado Springs, I love it! And while at Archiver's I noticed that scallops were everywhere. I mean everywhere....on paper, embellishments, stickers, stamps. This is where my handy dandy Spellbinder's Nestabilities scallop die cut templates came in handy. I used full embossed square on the first card and just a snippet of a black scallop on the second card. I love that the embossing adds enough detail that you don't really need to mat your images again. They stand out enough without any additional card stock matting. Images were colored with Copic pink markers. Notice too that I used a light pink mist of Copic airbrushing on both cards too. I think this added just the right airy touch to these romantic cards. Stay tuned for more tips on airbrushing with Copic Sketch markers soon.

Wow, I love what the Copic airbrushing does. Cant wait to find out more about how to do this technique! Can you email me and let me know about what machine I should get, Im really interested in getting the spellbinder scallop set but wondering if I can get by on a less expensive machine. Thanks, Laurie

I LOVE anything to do with PARIS and PINK. Your cards are no exception to that love!!

I love Archiver's so much they all know me personally, LOL. I gained a little more control and now I only go there about every two to three months. They should call it SCRAPBOOK HEAVEN!! TFS.
