Hehe. Don't you just love this little guy? I do! This is another stamp that I got from Lizzie Anne Designs. I needed some little boy stamps and this guy is perfect! I made this card for Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try. I kind of cheated and flipped the sketch. My little guy was just too tall! I also used Splitcoast's Inspiration Challenge. Here is the inspiration piece. I haven't done a Splitcoast challenge in weeks! I have really been missing them. Things just aren't the same when I don't get my daily challenge done. Hehe.
Alright, a few details on this card. Leanne and I were talking about trying some Copics because we have seen so many beautiful cards where the image was colored. In the past, I have not been very successful when it comes to coloring with my SU! markers. However, I decided to sit down and watch a few Copic tutorials to see what technique people use to get their images to look so gorgeous! Now, I did NOT use Copics on my image. I used my SU! Markers and I think it turned out pretty darn good. Especially for my first attempt. I am extremely relieved to discover this too, because those Copics are ExPenSive! :D If you want, I could try to cook up a little tutorial on how I colored this little guy in. I am working on improving and hopefully it starts to look even better! Any comments about Copics VS. SU! Markers would be greatly appreciated. I am still not sure what makes the Copics better but I would love to hear your thoughts!
That's all for now. I might possibly show up again with yet another card. I haven't decided yet. I sometimes like to save my cards just in case I have a day where I don't have time to be creative. We'll see what happens! :D Enjoy your evening everyone!
*Funny story, I just spent hours watering the yard because we haven't had rain in forever and low and behold, it just started to rain. Go figure. Hehe. *
