Creating a simple outside background using Copic Markers Video Tutorial


Today I have a fun Video Tutorial to share – Creating a simple outside background using copic markers and Neat and Tangled Stamps. I’m using the Ride with Me Stamp Set and the coordinating Ride with Me Nice and Neat Dies. I just LOVE hot the die cuts the legs apart so you can slide the other leg behind the bike. Super adorable!!!! I’m also using the Neat and Tangled Peacock Feathers Sequins.

I love every single release from Neat and Tangled. They sure can always WOW me. Take a look at the March release. I can’t wait to get my hands on that little monster.

Check out the new March Bundle!

March 2018 Bundle

I made a super simple layout but my little bike and critters are all on foam dots and my yellow mat is also on foam tape. I use so much of this stuff.. seriously. But when you add a little dimension to your cards it really makes a huge difference with your card.

The paper I’m using is a the 6×6 inch pad from Lawn Fawn – Perfectly Plaid Chill
