My Very First Tag for a Special Friend

I am quite proud of this tag. I used my Tim Holtz Distress stains, clear embossing powder, My Creative Time teeny tag greetings stamps, copics and tulle. I made this for a great friend who is moving soon and I will miss her dearly. I hope she likes it! It's supposed to be a surprise but if she sees it here first I think it will be ok.

New Class Added For May!! Learn to Color with Alcohol Ink Markers pt 1

So exciting we just got in stock at the store I teach at a "New" kind of alcohol ink markers by Crafters Companion called "Spectrum Noir" We carry 72 colors of the 168 color palette.
They blend very nicely and are made with the crafter in mind. They are a bit less expensive than some of the other markers.

“Learn to Color with Alcohol Ink Markers pt1”
May 12, 2012

This class is designed to teach you basics on how to color using alcohol ink markers. There are 3 brands on the market I am familiar with. Copic, Promarkers and the New Spectrum Noir Markers that we sell. 

I will show you the 2 techniques I use to get nice blended images.
