What a blessed time of year! Between the spring flowers poking their heads through the ground, the return of the songbirds, and the baby animals being born--we are all thankful for the blessings God had granted us!
Suzanne Dean's wonderful tutorial on coloring Scandinavian-style with Copic markers instead of distress inks. Suzanne always has suuch a great way of teaching the techniques, and inspiring me to try them!
While it seemed like this took a long time the first one, the rest colored up so fast (I made 7, total, for friends and family). I layered my card with a vellum panel that was first punched along the edge, then embossed with a Swiss dot embossing folder. LOVE THIS. I'll be using this more and more, now that I see what a great effect embossing vellum is!
My tiny double-loop boy was made easier by using a Bow-Easy--a great tool designed just for making perfect bows every time. (Suzanne also has a tutorial, for using this wonderful tool, on her blog.)
I hope you have a wonderful and blessed time with family and friends this Easter!
