WORKING ON TECHNIQUES...











Hi guys. Hope you are all having a great week. Tomorrow is my day off, so I am getting there. lol... Tomorrow is also the midnight release of New Moon on DVD. Yes, I am team Edward! Can you believe that I am probably the only Twilighter that did not see this in the theater? So, as you can imagine I am pretty excited.
Ok, enough about that. Lets get on with the card. I am not sure if I mentioned it, but I am taking some on-line Copic classes that Suzanne Dean is offering. The reason I bring it up now it is that one of the topics is how to make things have more dimension when coloring with black. I am very proud to say that is why I colored this cutie's hat black. I am very very please with how it turned out. I don't think a week ago I would have colored it with as much depth put into it. Anyway that leads me to this adorable stamp that I used for my card. She is called the Mad Hatter and she can be purchased from Spesch stamps. These are new digi stamps and I think you are going to love them. I of course used some of my new paper pads that I have. Sooooo addicted! Well, I better start getting kiddies ready for school. Have a great day everyone. Hugs, Lisa G

The hat came out just wonderful, you did such a great job! It looks just like a satin top hat, I guess I'll have to look into those lessons too now :0)
Great work!
