Centre Step Card

Hi Everyone,

Boy does time fly.  It only seems like yesterday that I was here doing a post for The CuttingEdge Magazine.
Well I am back with another card I have made using my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Machine.

It has helped to keep my enthused to create by cutting a few extra card bases at a time.
Then all I have to do is colour and image and assemble the card.... EASY!!!

Here is a card I have created using the 'Centre Step Card' available in Silhouette Studio.
The file was only $0.99, bargin.

Of course I have used my copics to colour the image:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11, Molotow
Hair: E70, E74, E77, E79, E49
Red: R22, R24, R27, R29, R46
Overalls: B91, B93, B95, B97

Until next time

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to share with you a project I have created for Scrapbook Boutique.

All the dimensions for this card can be found on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog.

Copics Used:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E71, E77, E79
Clothes: R11, R14, R17, B000, B93,B95, B97
Light: E41, E43, E47, Y35, Y38, C3,C0
Flowers: R14, R17
Note: I find that if I do not have a‘middle’ colour in the colour range of my copics (example E74 for the Hair), Iuse the ‘tip to tip’ method of colouring. ie: Touch the tip of the lighter colour (E71) to the tip of the darkercolour (E77) and colour from there. Remember to clean the tip of the lighter marker after doing thistechnique.

Until next time
