I made this card with the Crystal Ball image from The Stamping Boutique, and an old old stack of paper from ProvoCraft.
I love the colors. They’re a little bit dark and mysterious, but still very pretty.
I know the image is called Crystal Ball, but it looks more like a snowglobe to me, so I filled it with glitter. Be Creative tape is transparent, as is Highlight Glitter Ritz, so you can stick it over a colored image for a beautiful effect.
I used pop up dots all over the place (as usual), and curled the sentiment to look like a banner.
In other news, I’m in the market for a new printer. Mine has recently decided it’s too good to, you know, print. Suggestions are welcome. My only real requirements are that it be Mac compatible and allow me to print and color digis. I know some inks bleed and run and ruin marker tips. That was the only problem my POS Epson didn’t have. It would also be nice if it could print legitimately photo-quality photos. I know there are a lot of printers out there that claim that ability, but so few of them actually measure up.
And in other other news, I’m teaching my first Beginner Copic class tonight at Memories Live On. I hope I know what I’m doing.
