Cuttlebug borders!!

Some of the new Cuttlebug folders are here!! These new borders are very fun to use. I used the border on the edge of my DoubleMates cardstock. Then I sanded the embossed image to see the lighter purple color to the front. I colored the flower with Copic markers, using the feathering technique. So Simple!!

Copic class

Tuesday, I went to Milwaukee to become certified in Copic markers. We have been using these markers for years now. I have always like the look I got when using these fabulous markers, but I wanted to learn some more techniques...which I did. I will be having Copic classes at the store. Here is one of the cards we will do in the class.
