Hugs! Hugs! Hugs!
Hello and welcome!
I have a few days off from work and as you have probably guessed... I headed straight for my craftroom!
I want to share a card I created using the stamp "Teddy Bear Hugs" from the Gill Roberts' Collection (SP & Company). I guess I am still on my "Teddy Bear kick! ".
So this is what I am up to this week. I am trying out my new markers. I wanted to try some of my new Touch Twin alcohol ink markers from (ShinHan). I am still playing around with color combinations and unfortunately I did not keep track of the color combos that I used. I promise to start sharing them as I figure out good combos! What is my impression? I LOVE the ocverage and smooth flow of the ink. Gorgeous and the marker feels so good in your hand. OK - I ocnfess. Anymarker feels good in my hand! LOL I am still in the trial and error stage right now but will start recording my color combos soon. I plan to study Suzanne Dean's lists of combos at Color Me Creative. She has some fabulous starter combos!
What else amy I doing? I want to continue to experiement with my backgrounds and want to share one of my Intense Copic Faux Watercolor backgrounds for you. I really like how this one turned out. I have the darkest or most intense side in my shadow area and could probably have goon a couple shades lighter with my highlight side. I was using my Touch Twin and so I think I still need to play with them to figure out the intensity and hues.
I will be linking this card with the following challenges.
I hope you have a safe and crafty week. Stop by tomorrow to see what fun new technique I used with glitter and Copics!
