THANK YOU for the great copic ice cream tutorial, it’s something I have not tried with my Copics…..think it’s time that I do!???
Nice coloring! I was just wondering is there a trick to figuring out how to find the name of the author of blogs such as yours? I think that I read all of this Web page, as well as your About Me page, but I missed finding your name. This seems to be a somewhat common practice among stamping crafters. I often wonder who the authors are of various blogs that I visit. I guess it shouldn’t matter, but I seem to relate (so to speak) more to people than just to blog names. Anyway, as I said, nice coloring!
Thanks for your coloring tips! These ice cream treats look awesome!
Lovely cards and great tutorial. Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration.
Love this stamp set you did very nice job coloring amazing work with copics.
