Trying Something New



Actually its two new things, machine sewing and the use of copic markers.

I've been admiring the look of machine sewing used on cards and since I got a new machine for my birthday tried it out today. I've also been intrigued by Copic markers so used my birthday discount at my LSS to get a few. I used them on a stamped image I received in a RAK and learned I need to get some browns as I didn't have a marker for her hair. I think it still looks OK though. I'll have to explore online for some Copic marker techniques.

This card was inpired by Kazan's Sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You.
