CardMaker Blog Hop:Escaping the Comfort Zone

thank you blog hop

Today’s CardMaker Magazine Blog Team hop is all about getting outside of our comfort zone. I don’t know about you, but I always tend to make the same style of card. Its just easier to grab the usual supplies and create the familiar.

Now this card isn’t too far outside my zone, with the Spellbinders and patterned papers, but I don’t usually grab images that need to be colored. Which is silly, because I teach Copic classes locally, but its not my comfort zone.

thank you blog hop CU

This hedgehog from Penny Black has long been a favorite character of mine and I knew he would be perfect to use. (Coloring with my hands does not work these days, so thankfully I had this image laying around from one of the classes I teach.)
Copics: E29, E37, E11, E13, W1, W3, W5, W7, Y15, YR04, R11, R27, YG11, YG13, YG17, B32, 0

Be sure and check out the inspiration from the rest of the team. I know that I cannot wait to see everyone’s projects!! :)

thanks for stopping by!
