I was pleased as punch when I was received the volleyball stamp. When I was in high school I played volleyball. I wasn't very good, but I did my best! I still love to play volleyball even though my game hasn't improved.

For the card I used a computer generated sentiment on the top and a sticker on the bottom. The buttons are from Basic Grey and the jewels in her hair are from my stash.

I am not an expert on using copics. I confess, I learned how to color with copic markers by watching You Tube videos. I literally colored along with the video as I was watching it pausing the video often to catch up. I am left handed and find that coloring with the darkest color to the right is the easiest for me. On most of my images you will see "the light source" coming from the left and the shadowy part on the right. On this image you will notice I did it the opposite way. How? you ask. Easy. I turn the image upside down and still color from right to left. That's my tip for today! Do it the same way only differently. I am so smart!

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do!

  15. Love the added "sentiments" on the card.

    Thanks for the tip for us lefties. I admit, I also tend to have the darker side on the opposite and hadn't even noticed until you commented on it.
