Lagene-Guest Designer for June
Mark’s Finest Papers

I am so excited, Last month at Mark's Finest Papers Blog I won a spot as a Guest Designer for June's Stamp Release Hop! So here are two cards I made using the new All Aboard stamp set.  I just love this set for the guys in my life!
First card, the image was "over-painted" with LuminArte powdered pigments mixed with gum arabic.

The second card I used Copics to color the train  & sponged with die inks.
Now head on back to Mark's Finest Papers.
Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Lagene,
    Really love the map on your 1st card, and all the colors. You do a great job on using the copics. I want to try them just a little scared though, I guess it's cause I haven't used them before. Any ways your cards are great!
