Make it Monday: Happy Birthday


This week's Make it Monday #58 video is about Graduated Backgrounds.  I was very interested to see how Nicole Heady has been making those beautiful backgrounds, and super excited to see how easy it truly is.  Click here to watch the video and learn how.


I used the first technique she showed, which was using Copic markers.  I used RV10, RV13, RV14, YR12 and YR16.  (OK, I just figured out why people just take pictures of the ends of their Copics.)





Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Wonderful Words Additions
Paper:  White, Hibiscus Burst
Other:  Wonderful Words Die, Copic Markers


Thanks for Visiting

  11. Joyce,
    You did an awesome job with the challenge. I still need to do this.Using just the sentiments lets one focus on the background. You used my favorite pinks & reds too. I tend to gravitate towards them.
