I have had this stamp for a couple of years.. and tired to color it using different things and nothing work for me. So back in the drawer it went. Then I took a copic marker class... to get just the basics... I have taking the online class and it is wonderful.. and I have taken other classes and they were awesome.. but I still didn't get it. Then I took this class and it is just the basics and then something clicked in my brain.. and then this image popped in my head.
I wanted to make a card for my Aunt ( I have a few ) but this is the sister of the one in my last post. I wanted her to know how I felt about her and what she means to me. She is a gift from God to me she is my dad's twin sister.. so I call her my female father (they get a kick out of that). She doesn't have any kids of her own so my cousins and I are her children.. and she treats us as such.. She is a blessing.
I love how this came out (not to toot my own horn or anything) but I think it finally clicked. The only thing I would like to have gone back to do.. is blend out the blue a little bit more. I wish I would have taken a picture of the inside of the card. It was an explosion card.. and it simply said "you are my perfect gift"
