Papercrafting is big on trends. I am not ashamed to admit that I fall prey to mostly all of the new trends. I try and incorporate them into my projects and still maintain my signature style.
But...ya know what? I find that I become just as excited about techniques as well.
I don't know about you but, the more I add new techniques to my arsenal, the better I become as a crafter. There are some "basic" papercrafting skills that will always without fail - add value to a project. One of those techniques for me is masking.
I used masking on this card and I just LOVE it! I'm linking it up with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
I just love how this card turned out. See the masking? I think it made all the difference.
I've never been really good with listing my supplies. ESPECIALLY the Copic markers that I've used. However, I can tell you I used about nine different markers on the leaves.
Inspiration: My yard! I have beautiful oak trees and many other varieties of trees on my property and they're all so pretty!
Markers - Copic (lots of 'em)
