Beginner Copic Critters


Well hello there stampers, remember me? It has been 6 months (or more) since my last post.  I needed to step away and take some time away.  I was finding myself in a rut and not feeling very creative.  As some of you may know I started by blog out as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I love SU! dearly but was finding myself needing and wanting to be creative with other products that I found along the way. While being an active demonstrator of SU! I was unable to share with you on my own personal blog the things that I would create using these other products and I didn't think that was fair.  I have struggled with this before but have always gone back to SU!. This time, I needed to make sure that the choice I was making was the right one for me.  After weeks/months of contemplating I am no longer a demonstrator and am a free bird.

With that being said I am also a beginner. I have jumped into the world of Copic coloring, watercoloring and so many other wonderful techniques and used so many amazing products that I can't wait to share with you. However, like I said, this is all new to me... the coloring, some of the techniques but I want to share that with all of you.  Watching YouTube and reading different blogs everyone always seems to have it all together!! Well, I don't.  Everyone has to start someone and I want to share my learning journey with you.  So I will post cards/creations that I make... some may not be the prettiest... some may look like a hot mess but that is the journey of being a crafter right?  Not everything is perfect.  So I hope you take this journey with me and for some of you that are also new to the crafting world, learn with me.  I do plan to get back into videos, but one step at a time.

So, the first card that I am posting here is of some cute little critters from the Cuddly Critters stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  I used copic coloring for them and freehanded in a background.  I wanted it to be simple but look like they were sitting on bleachers.  I used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink and my ink blending tool to create a halo of yellow around them.

Well, that you so much guys for peeking in today.  I hope you will all visit again soon!!!  Until then...

Happy Inkin'
