Another Challenge - Copic source
Our Creative Corner has a Sketch Challenge on Thursday's and some other challenge on Saturdays. I decided to play and incorporate them into 1 card (that's not cheating is it?) So here is the sketch and blue/green color challenge.
My son gave me some High Hopes stamps I've wanted for Christmas and this is the first chance I have had to ink them up. I used Milton moose in his bathrobe and paper pieced the same background paper (My Minds Eye) for his bathrobe. I colored him with Copics.
I'm on a roll with Copics, I ordered a bunch more from Oozak. I love them, free shipping if you order $50 and if you create an account and sign in, they are only $4.25 each for Sketch! Plus they ship FAST, same day. Not affiliated, just happy customer.
I cut around the candle and slid my Nestie over and cut it out. The mesh on the top is the sticky drywall tape you buy at a home improvement store. I found it while organizing and decided it's NOT out of style, just forgotten. So I cut it in smaller strips, colored the larger one with a copic and layered the smaller strip on top. The greeting was generated with my label maker and the 3 brad looking things were picked up at Walmart, they are sticky back so easy to use when you forget to put them on early. LOL
I made 2 of these and am sending to my kids who are both in grad school and I KNOW don't get to bed before 2 am. How they can stay up that late all the time and still function and get the grades they do I'll never know but I'm SO PROUD of them.
