Balloon Girl

Here's a quick look at a card that will be featured in the upcoming Copic Basic & Airbrushing class (10/07/09).

I decided to copy Becky Rusher's signature soft look for this card - Mandy is so sweet colored with pale Copics and then faded to white - sparkly white paper makes the perfect clouds. (Happy Anniversary, Becky & Al).
Stamps - A Muse 1-6135J Balloon Girl, 8-8565B Little Fun Today
Paper - A Muse 4b notecard in Sky Blue, Doodlebug Design Bon Bon Sugarcoated Cardstock
Ink - Momento dye ink in Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Scalloped Oval Marvy Uchida Punch, Copic Markers
Here's a card I put together yesterday - I'm trying to do some different things with my Copics. This is a retired image from Stampin' Up! I love that little bird - used lots of different colors and then cut out and embossed with Nestabilities. Look at that soft edge - I used the Tim Holtz (Inkssentials) foam tool and Old Paper distressed ink. HOW did I ever stamp so long without this tool - It makes the PERFECT sponged edge!! LOVE this! Naturally, if you'd like one of your own, you can find it at Serendipity!!

I love how soft it looks and the color scheme you chose is perfect!
I don't know how I crafted without my Ranger Blending Tool either!
Love it!
