I'm Certified!

Today, I got certified!  In what, you ask?  I'm a Copic Certified Designer!!!  How cool is that?  Pretty soon you will see my "blinkie" over on the right of my page... I had a really good time, talked to craft enthusiasts like myself, networked, and learned lots of techniques.  It was a fun day and I'm hoping on getting better and better with my coloring...

  This is one of my favorite cards.  I think she's so cute!  I loved, loved, loved the background paper and I had already colored the image and noticed that they went perfectly together.  The paper is Citrus from... heck, I seem to have lost the front of the paper packet.  Sorry!! 

I had to add a little bit of sky, so I took my Memento Ink and sponged a white piece of paper with the three shades of blue.  The "SplishSplash" came from Hobby Lobby on one of their sticker sheets.  And it matched the blues perfectly as well.   I trimmed it out roughly because I didn't want the card to be too formal.  I'm not sure if I like that look, but I "stuck it down" pretty good on the card and didn't want to ruin it.  It's one of those  "live and learn" moments....I had hoped that I could add the sticker without having to use a white background, but it got lost in the background.  Tilda is popped up on pop dots. 
The water is glossy accents and I totally love the effect it created.
