Floral fun

I am really, REALLY excited to bring you today's post.  I signed up to take Mindy Baxter's Mother's Day coloring class.  This class is only available for purchase through May 14th but it is available for a lifetime after purchase!  It uses a gorgeous digital stamp (purchased separately) from Power Poppy.  I was thrilled to get to combine two things that I have wanted to do.  Take an in depth Copic class AND try out Power Poppy stamps.  A total win-win for me!

I cannot even begin to tell you how much fun I had taking this class.  It's like Mindy is right there in your home giving you one-on-one instructions!  She goes into a lot of detail and it's super easy to pause and catch up to whatever portion she is working on at that moment.  Not to mention you can "rewind" and watch things as many times as you need.  Awesome!  I felt her instructions were very clear and well thought out.  I mean, they must have been or there is no way I could have created such a gorgeous card!  Seriously!!  So without further delay, here is the result of taking Mindy's Mother's day class.

It is just so amazing!  I keep getting it out because I can't believe that I made that!  Yes, I am squealing here and doing a happy dance.  And it's even a no line coloring image!  And it looks fabulous!  Mindy made it so incredibly easy to create this gorgeous piece of art.  I can hardly bear to part with it but I think my Mother-in-law will be thrilled!

To create the card itself, I added just a little bit of extras.  I added a few sparkle flat sequins and a couple of clear Nuvo drops.  I used the same pink Copic marker to color the mat layer and went over it with a Spectrum Noir glitter marker because everything needs sparkle.  As the final step I adhered it all to a dark gray card base.  Done!  I couldn't bring myself to stamp a sentiment so I embossed one in silver on the inside.

If I haven't convinced you yet to run over and sign up for Mindy's class then I better share one more thing with you.  Mindy's classes aren't just for Copic markers.  You can certainly use any kind of alcohol markers.  I also wanted to show you how the same techniques she shows you can be applied using different mediums.  I brought out my Zig Clean Color markers and got busy!  Take a look.

Isn't it just as stunning as the one I did with Copics??  I am just tickled with how great this one turned out as well.  I encourage you to go check out Mindy's full line of classes which can be found right here.  I must also mention Mindy's awesome website My Creative Scoop.  She has so much to offer and a lot of it is free.  Yes, FREE!

These classes are going to become very addicting, I can just tell.  In fact, I'm off to continue working on her Create with Markers mega class.  I hope to be back soon with more lovely projects to share!
