Whew! What a night. It's Friday now as I'm posting this since I have Copic Class at The Crafty Scrapper tomorrow and I didn't trust myself to get up early and write my post! I am soooo not a morning person. *wink*
So it's time for another Sketch for You to Try! And I have to say, from beginning to end, this one whooped me. It wasn't the sketch, things just weren't going my way, know what I mean, Vern? First and foremost, I have a tip for you. If you ever get a new toy that you don't know how to use, I mean don't have a clue...definitely DO NOT try to figure it out on a card you need done when you're already tired. And absolutely positively don't START your card by using it. It will not be pretty.

Copic Airbrush System - 1
There is nothing wrong with the Airbrush System, as a matter of fact I have seen fabulous results from it, and have even seen it in action! I expect to take it out and be an airbrush WIZARD. But I hook it up, I squeeze, and NADA. Just a little blob of pink on the bottom of my main panel, then NOTHING. Total user error, I'm sure. And I guess it would help to read the directions or something. That, my friends, will have to happen another day. For now, here's my card, with a teensy bit of airbrushing and a whole lotta sponging.
Sweet Valentine set from Verve. Speaking of, don't forget to check out all the new releases! You can see them all HERE.
So, my desk is a wreck, and I will tell you (which I don't often admit!) that I don't love any part of this card, except the sparkly pink hearts. Oh, and the button. I like buttons. But that's just how it went. I started out frustrated, which wasn't good, and it just didn't work out like I hoped. I am still hopeful...but as for now, it's time for bed. *wink*
I have to mention before I go that you MUST check out Jen's Blog Tart HERE. It's HUGE!! And what a better way to get started than with a sketch? You can see Jen's sketch and sample along with a sample from my girl Kirsten HERE. Then once you check those out, mosey on to my bloggy friends Amy R, Amy S, Carole, and Susan to see their awesomeness. If you have time to play along, don't forget to use the keyword SFYTT so we can see how awesome you are!
Have a fabulous weekend!
