I've waited a little long to participate in their fifth anniversary - it's closing by end of day today! They are having a big party with lots of prizes and a ton of great inspiration from current and past design team members.
I played around with a number of ideas. Most of what I was playing with involved coloring images. Have any of you had the experience that lots and lots of your Copic markers are going dry all at once? I think we all jumped on the bandwagon at about the same time - and so my markers are all about the same age and are all failing. Sadly, even though I had a cute image for this challenge - my markers coordinating with Crumb Cake and So Saffron aren't functional.
So...new direction...I also had new-to-me dies on my desk (NBUS!!! Never Before Used Schtuff!). I have loved the stitched squares and rectangles from Li'l Inker Designs. When I decided to order the stitched circles I also filled my cart with a number of other basic dies - sun, clouds, balloons and the instant camera die. I love the added interest of the stitching on their dies!
