Not only do I have a post today but after three months I also have a new coloring video up on my Youtube channel. It's all about creating an under water feel, using Copics of course, and it is something that I've wanted to share ever since I first got this sweet Snorkel Beatrice stamp way back in May. Needless to say, the timing wasn't great for me but when it came my turn to do a Make It Monday tutorial over on the ATS blog, I finally had the incentive to grab my Flip and just do it. :)
The video runs about 18 minutes but when you consider that is coloring the whole image and background... not too shabby. And all together I was able to create the entire card in under 45 minutes, which works great within my current schedule. And I have to say that I'm glad I finally made the time to color this Beatrice up. I've gotten a handful of new summer type stamps these past few months and I'm just now realizing that my window to use them this season is drawing close to an end... yikes! I want to do my best to ink up this sad, and as yet unloved rubber so we'll see how well I do.
Anywho, I should go get myself ready for work. Hope your week is off to a great start!
