Thanks, Teacher

Hi friends,
Today, I have a card to share that features the no-line coloring technique with Copic markers. I have long admired the look, having first seen it with Magnolia images. Anyhoo, I decided I wanted to give it a go myself.

Here's my card:
Oh my word! Is it challenging!!! It was a long process as well. But for being my first time, I think it came out OK. *Ü*

Here's another peek:
I used the cutie Pure Innocence from the It's a sign stamp set from MFT. I used the long, long neglected fastenater stapler to attach the "teacher" staple. And look!--- No Wonky Stitches die on this card *Ü* hehe. (But it will be back!)

In the end, I think that this is one of those techniques that is worth the time & effort because the result is so, so, soooo preeeetty! *Ü* I will make it my Summer homework to keep practicing.

I used this week's MFT sketch:
I'll also be playing along in the following challenges:
