Weekly Challenges

This is the last weekend for August. September is starting in a few days and hopefully there will be some cooler weather. It has been so hot over in Arizona and I just love the monsoons that brings the rain and bring some relief to this heat. I just came back from taking Jennifer Dover's copic class at Paper Vineyard, my local scrapbook store in AZ. Her class is great, love it. I learn a lot from her today on how to do texturing, bending, shadowing, and feathering. I am going to take her copic class next month. She is teaching how to do monochromatic with the copic markers. She shown some samples of her monochromatic coloring and it is awesome.
I made a card for a friend who just gave birth couple of weeks ago to a baby boy. This is her second son. I used a Whiff of Joy (WoJ) stamp. This stamp is just so darling, innocent, and soft. I have been playing with my copic markers for half a year now and I am still learning. I want to learn how to use the feathering technique and blending for the hair and shadowing. Did I mention that I am loving these markers and slowly buying a few at a time. I think I have about 120 colors. I am not very happy with this card. I am thinking I need some lace on this card, but oh well, maybe for my next card. I purchased some lace ribbons to use from Stamp n' Create last month and haven't got around to using them. I was able to use this card for the challenges listed below.
