PTI October Hop
It's been a while since I've hopped with my PTI forum friends, and I'm glad to be back this month. The challenge for October was to create a card that celebrates an upcoming winter holiday, not including Christmas.
For me, this was a challenge as I have few Christmas stamps and even fewer (okay, no) stamps for any other winter holiday. But, I took the challenge as an opportunity to try out my new Copics on a Pink Cat Studios digital image from their Hanukkah collection.
I've learned a couple of valuable lessons. First of all, I totally understand why people love PTI's Stamper's Select White and why they have SO MANY COPICS. It's really hard to blend, when you don't have the right shades. I also realized that I need to practise. A LOT! LOL Hopefully, my next attempts at Copic-ing will go better. I don't think it could go any worse.
Thanks for taking time to visit my little stop on the hop. And if you like what you see, feel free to follow my blog. I've got a few more Copic-coloured surprises in store that look WAAAAAY better than this.
