Copic Cravings

I've been "craving" a Copic day for quite some time now, and finally got them out a few days ago. It's not finished, but I need some advice from my crafty peeps...

How would you "colour" the crown? Tempted to outline with a fine-tipped gold pen/marker, but I don't seem to have one in my stash. Thoughts? There's always Stickles, of course, but I need to broaden my range!

Work in progress...CRP164 Cling Mermaid Kiddo (Stampendous) stamped in Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copic markers. (Message me for a list of colours!)

Metallic CS and Embossing Powder -- SImple Yet Elegant!

A simple yet elegant Father's Day card -- this one is actually headed to my own father in Nova Scotia! I used black ink and embossing powder for both the sentiment and flourish, with metallic and black layers of cardstock.

Now I'm moving on to the designs for June's quilling and card classes at Bizzy B's. Check out the calendar and sign up to look some new fun techniques!

You can also check out my Facebook page: Designs and classes are posted there, too.

Here's a really simple (but really pretty!) card I recently made using the Colourful Companions stamp set by myStampBOX and Memento inks.

(I just discovered how tough it is to photograph a white card. Any tips would be appreciated! :)  )

Quilled Flowers

Quick shot of the quilled flowers I made for Monday's Licence to Quill class at Bizzy B's. It's been a while since I did much quilling -- I'd forgotten how much I love it!!

At long last, I have managed to access my Blog again! The joys of technology and 473 logins/passwords...Seriously! So secure that even I couldn't get in. lol

In any case, PaperScapes is alive and well, with lots of things on the go. My next class at Bizzy B's is tonight from 7:00 to 9:00. It's a paperbag album class, which is really simple, very fun, and pretty cute. It makes a great Mother's Day gift!

(These shots were taken by Rebecca King at Bizzy B's.)

A Touch of Whimsy!

At last, a shot of my quilled house of whimsy! It's not done, but I've completed enough work that you'll have a good sense of what the finished house will be like. Very exciting, I think!! :)
