Now I like to think I am an OK crafter- but am I good enough to apply for I-Copic?
I always have wanted to be Copic certified and wish the classes were closer to my home.
I wrestle with idea of paying so much for the certification- (THIS IS MY OPINION)- I know a few people that have been certified and really can't color any better then a small child-but boldly use their certification link as a badge of experience.
Does that certification make them an expert?
I know many ladies that color like a dream- they have no certificate!
Here I am going to share a couple of my just completed cards-let me know what you think.
I found a great background from a fun place called Ceremony Share...I just distressed a little to age it.
I stamped the suitcase set on vellum and colored-then I matted on white card stock.
Both images are pop- dotted
Tilda and suitcase stack from Magnolia.
Pink ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon of course
Distressed tag from Kraft Outlet.
Pink stick pins from Pizzazz Aplenty
The flowers are handmade after using my cricut to cut the petals - Punch for the leaves
Image colored with Copic markers
doily from my stash
The multi paper is from Hobby Lobby
Ribbon and Pink Twine are from Really Reasonable Ribbon
My handmade flowers
Pink card stock-CTMH
Little ball ribbon from my stash???
Images colored with pencils and orderless mineral spirits
I tried a new effect with the clouds- I really like how it turned out.
So what do you think about coloring and certification?
I will entering these in the following challenges:
I-Copic Challenge DT- Pink creation
The Corrosive Challenge- use pastel colors
The Crafty Pad Challenge- flowers
