Red Rocks Birthday - Masculine

11/12/2017 Update: Triple Winner of Favorite of the Week at Splitcoast Stampers for the week ending 11/11/2017.

Over the past few months I have taken a few Copic classes. Here is a card that I made using some of the new techniques that I have learned. It reminds me of Sedona, Arizona, only a few hours from where I live. I have already addressed an envelope to the recipient - a friend of ours who plays poker with my husband will be celebrating a birthday in a few days.
The card was easy to assemble. The image was stamped and colored. The brads were added then the panels were adhered to a white card base.

  2. Oh wow, that is stunning Melanie! Your coloring is just perfect, such a beautiful design!

  3. Amazing colouring of this scene; one that I'd love to step in to! Your work with copics...oh my! A most impressive way to 'make your mark'! Thank you for joining us in the Addicted to Stamps and More gallery!

  4. Melanie, this is an amazing colouring. Thank you so much for sharing your card with us at AAA Cards Challenge. - Sweet Kobylkin

  5. Your copic classes are paying off...your card is beautiful and so reminds me of Sadona...need to make a trip there soon, are you in for it?

  6. If this is the result of "a few classes" to learn about colouring with Copic markers, I am AMAZED! This scene is incredible and makes me feel like I am looking at a picture instead of a coloured card. The use of colour and shading is remarkable and so true to life. Congratulations, Melanie - this should be framed! It is gorgeous :)

  7. If that's what a few classes in Copic coloring can do, I can't imagine how accomplished you'd be after more. This is outstanding, Melanie. Thanks for sharing it with us at Addicted to Stamps and More.

  8. This is a wonderful scene beautifully colored. TFS.
