So, I wanted to take part in a recent Paper Smooches challenge but since I only started out with this hobby, I didn’t have any of their stamps. Fortunately, Paper Smooches offers some great free digi stamps.
Unfortunately, I can’t print on my Copic paper, which forces me print it to transparency paper, then trace the lines on Copic paper. Not having a light table, I had to be a bit more creative (and physical):
To be honest, after a while my arm got quite heavy and my eyes started to tear since I was staring right into the setting sun, but I ended up with quite some samples that I could color, so all was good.
I was so excited to use my Copics and especially my new brown colors that I completely forgot that the challenge was not just about using Paper Smooches stamps, but also about using a certain color scheme. So, I happily colored all my cards and only realized in the end I didn’t follow the rules. Duh.
But I’m still happy with these pretty clean and simple cards (I know, they are beginner cards, but hey, everybody needs to start somewhere, right?!).
