Playing with some new toys today. When I did my great craft room purge I sold all my Copics! Yes, every last one of them. I just wasn’t using them and that was my criteria for purging. If it’s not being used…it gets sold.
I wanted to try a new alcohol marker…not have every colour…just a few for highlighting and shading. The Nuvo alcohol markers are very economical and I found them to blend well. I also like the feel of the barrel in my hand…very comfy.
Back to the card. I stamped the Cosmos Background in black and coloured it with the Nuvo markers..just pretty neutral colours. Next came the shine. I added Nuvo Glitter Drops to the centres. I also added some Deco Foil randomly for more bling. The sparkle is amazing. I find taking photos of shiny stuff so difficult. My picture just doesn’t do the card justice unfortunately. Here’s a close up of some of the shimmer.
Back soon with more my sweet friends…
