Expresso Yourself!


I sat down with a few stamps my friend Joanne Fink gave me from her Zenspirations line for Impression Obsession. These images are perfect for coloring so I decided to break out the Copics for a go one night while watching TV. 

I created this fun little “Expresso Yourself” card with some papers on my table as well as a new Zig Kuretake A Wink of Stella marker I picked up at CHA last month–these pens are gorgeous!! Rich ink with a touch of sparkle! I had a blast creating this card just for fun.
