I finished up my super busy work week (first Hackathon at my company, and I was the Scrum Master) and spent friday evening deliberating on crafting challenges. I decided to go with critters using Copic Markers. I took one look at my craft room and knew that before anything I needed to clean first. I ended up so tired that as soon as I was able to see my desk, I was too tired to start on my project and instead I headed off to bed.
Today I woke up refreshed. I did a couple of chores, ran an errand and then went in my room to create. Sitting in my "must use this next pile" was some patterned Stampin Up paper I received as a gift for Christmas. It was double sided so I pondered which side color theme to use and I decided on the mustard, tan and burgandy side of the paper. I like more elaborate, many layered cards and had 8 different patterns to work with, perfect for me. Next up was the focal point. I really, really like the Newton's Nook "Newton" cat stamps and I had the Naughty Newton set in my must use pile right under the paper. Perfect, so that is what I used.
I decided to use the image where Newton has knocked over the pot, with the sentiment "Sorry...". Sometimes in life, we make mistakes and need to apologize, this is the perfect card for the next time that happens!. I also kept my markers organized and logged the colors I used. I need to be conscious of this now that I have a blog:) I used two different Gina Marie Dies as well as one of the Spellbinders Postage Stamp Squares dies. I sponged Aged Mahogany Distress Ink on the edges of the bottom two layers and popped up the bottom and top layer with dimensionals for depth. I colored a wide satin ribbon with RV99 and added three mustard DIY enamel dots to finish the card off. This card will be entered in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and Markerpop challenge #86, both of their challenge themes are "Critters". Thanks for visiting!
