CAS3 Day 7

Hi everyone! Just a quick post for today ~ 

In yesterday’s CAS3 Cardmaking Class, Kristina demonstrated a technique for coloring on Vellum with Copic markers. I wanted to use a large sentiment, and pastel colors (come on spring!), so I chose my Thank You die by Hero Arts and some of my softer Copic markers. I embossed the front panel, and added some small hearts and gems. 






As usual, it's hard to see the detail in the embossing, so here is a close-up:




We’re learning so many amazing techniques in class, so of course I wish I had more time to play...hopefully, I’ll be able to create more cards during the next few days.




The theme for this week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More is 'Make Your Mark', since I used Copics to color behind the die cut, I would like to submit this card.


I hope everyone is having a great week! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog...I really appreciate your sweet comments!



Supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink - Select White, Vellum
Dies: Hero Arts - Thank You; Lawn Fawn and SSS - Hearts
Markers: Copics
Impression Plate: Papertrey Ink - Rustic Burlap
Enamel Dots: My Minds Eye
Sequins: Small Flowers - Gift from a Sweet Friend

Love it Barb, I'm getting so far behind in class at the moment but sadly my brother leaves today... so maybe I'll just be able to play a little catch up, I really don't want to get in trouble from the teacher now do I? lol
