Color Me Pink for iCopic!

I love creating with paper - it is therapy for me, and allows me to leave the stresses of my life behind. It also gives me a great excuse to spend time with my delightfully funny friends (as if I need an excuse). I used to say that it is cheaper than seeing a therapist, but that is absolutely not true!

I am trying out for the iCopic DT. ICopic is a fabulous store with amazing prices on Copics. They also sell stamps from a variety of small stamp companies, my favorite of which is SP and Company, owned by the amazing Samantha Peyton (the Energizer Bunny of papercrafting). One of the requirements for the DT call is a project created just for the DT, which highlights the color pink.

I made this fun little card holder out of the top of a pizza box (Valentino's Special is the best pizza). I stripped the paper from one side of the cardboard (I like the narrow corrugations on this one). The DP is TAC's Maggie. The images are from a limited edition set, and are colored with (what else?) Copics (R81, R85, R89, YG93, YG95, YG97). The shapes are cut with Nestabilities Labels One. I hope you like this little project!
