make it monday #29



welcome to another papertrey ink make it monday post! i busted out those darn cute little strawberries...again! mostly because i only have 3 copic markers...fuschia, pea green and a light grey...so i'm a little limited in choices. haha. i'm working on it though. after using copics at stamp-a-faire on a card for one of heather's make-and-takes, i was hooked! but i'll grow my collection slowly because they're an expensive little marker! :) so this is just a tiny little tag that i created using the bookmark die. i just ran it through the cuttlebug with the paper overlapping just enough to make it as long as a little tag, then rounded the edges when it came out.  pretty cute! i also tried my hand at stamp masking for the first time on this little project as well. i simply stamped the strawberries at the sticky end of a post-it note, then trimmed it out, placed it on my white cardstock, then used the ledger stamp from tag-its #6 to stamp over that.  just remove the sticky note and stamp the actual strawberries in the blank area and you're all set! i've seen on nichol magouirk's blog that she has special masking paper that she uses which looks fab because you can save the masks to reuse! have to add that to my scrappy wish list!  it was a little tough for me to get messy with those markers though! haha, it's funny how strange it felt to color outside the lines when usually you try to make it look so perfect and tidy!  anyhow, thanks for stopping by! xxo andie...
