Our Craft Lounge - Guest Designer
Wowza.... One of my very very favorite Stamp Companies asked me to be a Guest Designer for the Month of October... Whew He... time to strut my stuff... so I thought I would start off the month with a Peacock!
The moment I saw this peacock from the PROUD AS A PEACOCK stamp set (Pictured below).. ..... I thought purple and turquoise... I just had to have it. I could not find a background paper anywhere that seemed to fit the style and colors I wanted... So I colored part of this background paper with a V15 Copic Marker to make it match! Whew Hew problem solved. Give this a try....
I only colored a tiny piece of these "ornanments" with my purple marker
and it gave enough purple in the paper to perfectly match the colors I used to color my image. I just love my Copics.
I LOVE Our Craft Lounge... Did you know that my very first image
that I colored with Copic Markers was Bubbles by Our Craft Lounge? Yep, Our Craft Lounge was a HUGE part of my becoming a successful Copic Teacher for local, national, and international stores as well as a Certification instructor for Copic. THANK YOU SO MUCH OCL... I LOVE YOU!
