This was a fun image to color. I worked on it for a long time. Lots to color with my Copics. And I used my Blender pen more than I ever have on this one! It was fun watching the ink fade.
I did this card for this weeks House Mouse Challenge, it actually is their holiday break challenge, I am just now getting to it. Better a bit late than not at all. They asked for embossing. Well I did two types of embossing on this card. HA! But as I finished up the card you can only see one.
Ok, so I started with my image, it is a very large image as you can tell. The finished card measures 6x6 inches. I used a deep turquoise blue card stock for the base and to mat the image. The pattern paper is Basic Grey, Periphery. Now for one of the embossed pieces there is a really cute green strip running up the right side of the card that has Cuttlebug embossed buttons... image was so large it covered the bottom, and then I added the flowers and liked them so much I ended up covering up the top too. But it is there in between the flowers in person you can see just a bit of it. My second embossing is the sentiment that is also Stampendous House Mouse, I heat embossed it with detail black embossing powder. Love how it pops.. why don't I use that more often? Back to those flowers they are Prima and Heidi Grace, with Martha Stewart leaves, jewelery spacers, and mini brads. The top left corner seemed empty so I stamped a corner bracket from Clear Art Stamps. Wish I had embossed it too, but too late. I found a scrap of fancy ribbon and created a band across the bottom corner and then added the flower charm. Don't know why... just wanted to use it as it was sitting on my desk begging. I then gel pen stitched the edges of all the card stock.
Well Hubby is off today, we are hoping to move some of the Donkeys around and SHOCK... it is time to wean Gloria... so Mom and her will both be sad today, but she will be in the youth pen so lots of girls for her to play with.
Hope you have some fun planned, time to get inky I hope!
