Trying something new

I think as crafters we should always look to improve our skills to try new things! I recently sat down and just truly looked and studied many copic coloring tutorials, some of my favorite crafters blogs and so on. Just to absorb some of the talent out there, to see what I can do to make my creations better, or maybe not better but different. 

One of my most favorite crafters is Mary Giemza. I just am so in awe every time I visit her blog over her coloring skills and her creations.

I took the time to just play around and follow her tutorial on cutting out images and highlighting images.

I used a new Motivet stamp I won on the Friday Sketchers blog, Fairy with butterfly.

I still have lots of practice to do but this was a fun technique and one I can see myself doing often as I just love the way it makes your image look.


supplies:
Have you seen the new Kraftin' Kimmie stamps? No? They are so fun!! and Susana has them in stock ready to come to your house!! Be sure to check them out and order a few for yourself!
