learning a new skill.

So tonight I decided I wanted to break out some of my copics. As much as I love to color, I just still feel like I can't master these things. I need a class! I took forever to color these flowers, but I'm really happy with the outcome. I used some clear cardstock and some white ink to make polka dot overlay. I used buttons on the very top layer to hide my glue dots I used to hold the clear cardstock to the white cardstock:
Here's what I used:
Stamps: Friends Til' The End, Polka Dot Basics
Ink: Black VersaMagic, White Craft
Ribbon: Papertrey Ink White Satin
Paper: White PTI, Pure Poppy, Lemon

In other news I gave my bed a little makeover. I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and got duvet clips and bedskirt pins. For about five bucks, my duvet is now staying in the perfect place.
And the little pins are holding my bedskirt in the perfect place. I really didn't think it would make a huge difference but it did!
Plus, my sweet husband, took my favorite sheet set pillow case to camp with him, and well it was so gross when he got back. So I got these great costal sheets. I love how they peek out now:

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card. I think it's one of the prettiest ever! GREAT job. You need to teach me the technique.

Oooh, I love those vibrant flowers! I'm awful at coloring--we should take that class together. ;)

Your post reminds me--I've got a gift card & $10 coupon to BBB that I need to use...new sheets sound good!

I think that this is my favorite of your creations (and that is saying a lot because you have done a lot of great creations:)

You know, I think you may have sold me on some of the clippys. Thanks for the insight. I still have a giftcard I got from a shower before we got married...

I have always wondered about duvet clips. I might have to try them out!
