Just rosey thank you card using Copic markers, nesties, and papertrey Ink stamps.

Hello, friends!!

I made an 'A' on my test!! Woohoo!! I am so glad all that work paid off! It is always so stressful taking a test from a professor for the first time. You never know what to expect. It is such a relief now that I know!

Anyway, this card is not made using anything Cricut. However, if you do not have nestibilities you can can cut out a similar shape with your cricut. I am sure something similar exists.

I used SU! paper completely on this card. Also, the ribbon is from SU!
I stamped the images on colored patterned paper, added some shading with a gray copic marker(C1), and hand cut the pieces out.
Using my air compressor and a copic marker I airbrushed this nestibility shape. Then I added the rhinestones using tweezers. 
I have more stuff that I am posting this week, so don't forget to check back in!!

Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!

Oh dear, now it looks like I'm gonna have to add copic markers to my Christmas wish list! My dh will thank you I'm sure! lol

Ohhhhhhh mmmmmyyyyyy (in my best George Takei imitation), that's gorgeous!! Is that Year of Flowers: Roses? and look at that background stamping! and the airbrushing, and I'm studying those roses carefully so I can learn to shadow like that (since I have about no chance of taking a copics class in the near future).

BTW I did my first Papertrey Ink blog hop Saturday. For a minute I forgot where I was lol. Love PTI!!

Melanie, I know exactly what you mean about tests! Thankfully this is my last semester of Biochem, but I just started in a new program and it is hard adjusting to new professors. When will you be finished?

And your card is very pretty. That flower is so gorgeous.

Hugs,
Samantha

I just got to see these nesties you talk about in person the other day. They are neat but I forgot to ask can they be used with the cuttlebug? I saw them in action with a Big Shot.
