Suzanne Dean, my Copic Marker instructor is having a Design Team call for "Color Me Creative Classroom". I just had to color a few cards in order to participate. How could anyone miss an opportunity like that! We needed to submit two cards or projects using Copic Markers. My first card was a gorgeous flower by Flourishes called "Thank You set 33". Now if you have picked yourself up off the floor from laughing, we will continue. I know.... it is a really strange name for a stamp but the flower is worth it! I have loved this flower stamp for a long time.

I embossed waxed paper with D'Vine Swirls and transferred it to my focal image layer with a hot iron. (Be sure your have paper in between your iron and the ironing board! Sponge Memento Ink onto the focal layer and your will see how the waxed image magically pops up! I then cut out my focal image and tied a bow that I made using bow easy.
I just love the waxed paper technique. Gina K did a tutorial on this technique and I have just loved it. It reminds me of a stained glass window behind the focal image.
My Second card was a wonderful digital image from Sugar Nellie called "Verity Standing".
