Version 2 of Marker Artist

As I told you in yesterday's post, I am in need of two thank you cards to express my gratitude to two talented stampers for organizing and hosting two recent coloring classes I taught.

I decided to use the same Squigglefly digital image from Cheryl Alger as I did for the first thank you card. I printed it onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. Not wanting to think too much I used the same general layout as yesterday's card. Various patterned paper, black cardstock, a corner punch, and a chipboard flower were used to complete this card. The sentiment is computer-generated.

If you look closely, you'll see that I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the corners and center of the flower. Because of this, I'm going to submit this card for Challenge #15 on Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog, which is to use embossing in some way.

Thanks for visiting today.

Want to be a Marker Artist?

Last month, I was honored to have the opportunity to teach two coloring classes, one with Copic markers and the other with Prismacolor pencils, to some local stampers. I need to send a huge thank you to the hostess of the classes and the organizer/recruiter for the classes. This is one of two thank you cards I'm making with this Cheryl Alger's digital image from Squigglefly. I think it is an appropriate image to use, given the content of the classes.

I printed the digital image onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. Patterned paper, black cardstock, brads, ribbon, and a corner punch were also used to complete this card. The sentiment was computer generated.

It was a lot of fun to teach the tips I've gathered along the way on how to color. Thanks, ladies!
