No Coloring Required

This morning I was sorting through my Copic markers after a failed attempt to reorganize them differently.  Hubby was leaning over my desk and helping me pull out colors.  He didn't hand me R00 when I was putting away the pinks because didn't realize it was pink. As I picked up the first one and then the second one I explained that I used it for flesh tones and that was why I had duplicates of it since I teach classes and look, here's a third one. Oh, and now a fourth and gosh, I have five of them. I mentioned that I thought that five might be a bit excessive.  Hubby allowed that just might be....
...Especially if you are going to go all crazy and make cards like this with no coloring required.  Last month I did a card exchange where the theme was "opposites." I pulled out some of my favorites for this one: black and white, circle and square, and left and right.

The Fine Print: Happy Birthday greeting by A Muse Studio, word window punches by Stampin' Up, papers by DCWV. Do you spot the boo boo?

This is so pretty with that touch of Iris folding, and I love the black & white combo with a little pop of color! Boo boo? Nope, don't see anything wrong with this great card!

I love iris folds! One of the first techniques I learned when I started making cards. This is gorgeous in B&W. I wouldn't have spotted it if you hadn't mentioned it!

No opposites here! All round fantastic! (5 of the same color?)

I don't see a boo-boo. I do see an iris fold design, something I never mastered. Mine all come out too thick to mail, even in a box.

I didn't think 5 R00-s was anything excessive. Hey, you're teaching classes, and the markers can get dry. Best to have backup. (Hope you stock the refills too. Much cheaper in the long run). This is one gorgeous gatefold card. I love that the closure is the iris folding, and it looks phenomenal. I took a class in that, liked it, not done it since then! Looks snazzy in black & white (and the dark gray in the circle folding. Those patterns look stunning combined in the design). TFS

Lots of opposites making a really powerful bold card. Stick with the teaching excuse and get yourself five more I say!
