I want to thank {capture the moment} for teaching me this new technique; Make It Monday #176 Backgrounds with Embossing Paste.  I had every intention of entering this card into their challenge but I needed to have one papertrey item....and that...I didn't have.  Oh well, next time.  :)  Because I didn't have Papertrey's re-inkers, I substituted with Distress Ink Re-inkers.  Just FYI if you try this technique: start off with ONE drop.  Don't be like me and my first attempt at this technique, I used like 3 or 4 drops!  Colors came out super strong.  But overall, I love this technique!  And especially with all the new stencils coming out = AWESOMENESS!  So much fun!

I've also been playing around with the No Lines Copic Coloring technique.  And I can finally say, that one summer of Jane Chow Art Classes finally paid off...20 years later.  LOL!  Bless my mom's heart for always letting me take something artsy or crafting-specific during my childhood summer years.  I hope I'll be as good as she is.  

But getting back to this No Lines Technique...ok...this is my fourth attempt doing this technique.  My first two tries no one will ever see because I've tossed them.  Yes, tossed that's how horrible it turned out.  LOL!  This takes so much time and practice but the end result comes out great!  I have one more layout with the no-lines I'll be posting later.

Copic Colors Used:
Skin Tone: E00, E21, and E50
Hair: T2, T5, and T8
   Pinks: RV10, RV11, and 0
   Purples: B60 and B63
   Blues: B00 and B01

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!
