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.

What a fun card!! I love this stamp and your clever way what you did with it. Very brave with the nesties indeed :)
Oh and thanks for the tip with oozak, waiting for my second order already ;) They have super service and the markers are wonderful. This time I ordered a bunch of refills. I noticed that my ciao markers run out rather quickly, much quicker than the sketch markers, wonder if they are cheaper because there is less ink in them?

Great card and great tips! I keep meaning to try that with the nesties. Love your blues and greens. Glad you got to join in the fun with the OCC this week!
