Hi There

For me, when I'm coloring an image with Copic markers, or any kind of coloring medium, the colored image will become the main focal point, if the card has less stuff on it. So after I colored in the owls, (loving the Stampavie whimsy style) I cut it out using a Spellbinders labels die (love those things), I layered it onto kraft card stock.  The vinyl Thicker used to be green, but I wanted it a different color, so I took out my black Copic marker and colored it black, this could be done also using a Sharpie (I have never done this, but I know people who have).  I was at a loss and what kind of ribbon to use, so I went to my old standby, sheer May Arts black ribbon.  I was in a clean and simple mood when I made this, but if I wanted it a little more dressed up, I could of added some bling, paper pierced along the edges, or even added some buttons.
"hi there"
