Graphic Arts here I come

A member of my design team recently forwarded an e-mail to me from an 11th grade teacher who was looking for help in designing a ticket for her classes’ prom. I have a little experience in CorelDRAW so I volunteered to design something using her input. This was the final version. The original version had two Eiffel Towers on the left and was lacking the black box. The text was black and only three lines. After running the design by her 11th graders, this was the result. I don’t know if that qualifies me as a Graphic Artist, but I very much enjoyed the process.

Prom Ticket

This card was created for my friends in Montana. I discovered that you can’t use Zing Embossing Powder and copics. It’s possible I didn’t heat it well enough but I found the powder very smeary. So, I pulled out my FibraColor markers and colored this image. The markers worked very well on my Beckett Radiance 120lb paper. The background was done using the FibraColor markers and the Stampin’ Up Color Spritzer Tool. This tool can’t be used with the Copics due to the shape of the Copics, but all round markers fit in it.
