A Card to Warm You Up

Friends in countries where there is winter keep on putting up statuses in facebook that they’re freezing so I made several cards to send them and hopefully warm their hearts for a minute or two.

I just used a free colored digistamp for this and papers from national bookstore. The clouds are hand-drawn and manually embossed using a provocraft folder and a rolling pin since I don’t have an embossing machine yet.

Hope my little card made you smile today and made you think of happy memories of summer. Have a great day everyone!

Copics or Shinhan Twin Touch?

I’m in dire need of coloring markers coz the one I have here is the Stabilo Power Markers and it’s so difficult to work with. It streaks and bleeds a lot too. 😦 Just look at this!

After A LOT of research from crafters’ blogs my search narrowed to two top markers. Copic Markers and Shinhan Twin Touch markers. Copics cost an arm and a leg and a few extra pounds to top but it’s the best there is in coloring. They say the tip is like a little brush so it’s easy to manage. Twin Touch on the other hand costs almost 75% less than Copics but it’s not as great.

My oh my what am I gonna do?
