This weekend was a whirlwind of activity. I traveled to Greenville, South Carolina, to attend the Standard and Intermediate Copic Certification Workshops. I had a wonderful two days of learning more about Copic markers and how to use them to their maximum potential. Over the next several weeks, I'll be talking more about what I learned and sharing some tips and techniques with you. The experience was absolutely amazing, and I was blown away by our instructor, Cindy Lawrence. Her cards are a true sight to behold!
I'll also be displaying my Copic certification badges here on my blog - as soon as I receive them. As with many things, making everything "official" takes a little time.
Meanwhile, I'd like to offer my sincere congratulations to my fellow classmates, who also received certifications. Here's a simple card that was designed for a young man, but it seems to fit the bill quite nicely.
For those interested in the particulars of the card, I used Bazzill Herbal Garden Dark cardstock, cut to a finished size of 5 1/2" square. The pattern paper is Creative Imaginations (camouflage). I misted the paper with Heidi Swapp Color Shine gold - and also used a Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Sun Flags die and stamp. The sentiment was my own, generated on my computer and printed out. I popped up the flags and sentiment with Stampin' Up's Stampin' Dimensionals, and that was it!
It does seem a little strange that in a post about Copic markers, I didn't use any. Don't worry; I'll get to it! For now, I'm just happy to be home again and back to a normal routine. Travel is fun, but as Dorothy once said, "There's no place like home!" (Wizard of Oz)
Thanks for visiting, and please stop back by in a couple of days. I promise to offer some interesting tidbits about Copic markers - and have a cute card to show you, too. May God bless!
