The Colors Come Shining Through...

Hello friends and a happy Monday to ya!
Oh wow I wish it wasn't so COLD out...I would love for the sun to come shining through and warm this place up a bit right now!! LOL!!  In the meantime, I do have some fun stamping to do so I am really happy doing that right now! :)

I'm still working on my card techniques for my class.  I'm trying to just make sure I have at least one card for each section in the class gallery so I have at least covered each theme we've been working on.  If I have time, I'll go back later and complete more cards until the time is up, but for now, I'm working on the "Creative Coloring" one layer card theme.  So here's what I've done:
I have to say that I LOVE my Copic markers and have used them quite often to color in images, but I have NEVER used them in this way.  I really LOVE how this one turned out!  I can see me doing this again for sure!  I was also really happy because I got to pull out a couple of brand new stamps and die cut to play with for this one! :)  I hope to continue to share more class creations this week until we've wrapped up the class.  There are many more I'd like to give a try with!

Stamped Sentiment and Sentiment die cut from Whimsy Stamps
bottom heart punch, vellum and Tombow Multi-purpose Adhesive is from Stampin' Up!
We R Memory Keepers Enamel Shapes - Warm from Ellen Hutson
Sunny Skies clear stamp set by Mama Elephant from Ellen Hutson (I just used the small heart from this set, but watch for more from me later with this stamp set!)
Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust Meteor Gel Pen (SSS) (Covered the hearts)
Various Copic Markers - I buy mine locally at Dick Blick Art Materials
Cryogen White cardstock from Paper Temptress

Challenges to enter:
Little Red Wagon - a rainbow of colors
Simon Says - Glitter It! (Used the glitter gel pen..no wink of stella! boo!)
Less is More - "3" of something & comment on three entries (I used three enamel dots & have three glittered up hearts)

So this is all I have to share with you today!  I wish you a bright and sunny day with lots of colors in your rainbow!! :)  *Don't forget to enter my blog candy - CLICK HERE!*

I love this great idea, Vicky! I can use my Copic markers and not have to color inside the lines!! What a fun card!

I'm not doing this class, but am enjoying everyone else's h/w! Love the blended copics behind the die cuts, great technique well executed. Jenny

Beautiful card, I love this technique. I use my Inktense pencils to make colour rainbows for this type of look as my copics are rather limited. Its a great way to add a splash of colour.
