Beauty Is In the Eye of the Beholder

Hello One Crazy Stamper followers,

I'm the new kid in town, having just been invited to join the wonderful design team for One Crazy Stamper, and I am so excited and honored to be a part of this great team!!  I had the opportunity to be a Guest Designer here in June and loved it, so this is going to be so much fun.  Here's a short bio:
 I am mom to two adults and 4 fur babies, and have been a crafter forever. I started with rug hooking, crocheting, faux painting, and then ran my own tole painting business for years ( even cut my own pieces of wood ). Scrapbooking entered the picture about 14 years ago when I moved to Calgary. When Copics first came out I resisted - who needed another addiction LOL!!! - that lasted for a whole two months, and then I took a basic class and the rest as they say is history!! I became a Copic Certified Designer in April 2010 and LOVE everything about Copics, including experimenting with all kind of techniques, and passing my passion and knowledge on to fellow Copic lovers!!!

Okay, it's time to show off my first card -
My card features the beautiful "Mizuki" from Kraftin' Kimmie, stamped on Copic Xpress It paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored with Copics.  The background was airbrushed with the same Copic colors, then the image was cut with Spellbinders Wonky Squares.  The designer paper is from Authentique's 6 x 6 Collection - Glowing.

Thanks for joining me today, and you still have time to enter this months OCS challenge, so get creating and join in the fun!
