  1. Vellum Flowers

    Vellum Flowers

    Hi All! I am excited about this card because it’s so dimensional. The petals are Copic-colored vellum. I’ve colored vellum with Copic markers before, but I didn’t like how the color was so muted. But, with the “texturizing” of these petals, I really like the technique! Here is a close-up...

    Color Burst Snowflakes

    Hi All! I’m using my Color Burst powders today. It’s funny because I was reluctant to buy this product at first – it seemed way too messy with unpredictable results. But I’ve used them a lot, and I keep going back to use them. I would definitely classify this product...

    Easy Die-Cut Masking

    Hi All, The technique I used on today’s card has so many possibilities! I used some snowflake die cuts to mask an ink blended panel, then sprayed it with white ink. It’s surprisingly easy to do. Here is a close-up of the masking: You could also use a watercolor-washed background...
