Saturday Hello

April 26th, 2008

Here’s another card I made with an image colored last weekend with Joy’s Copics.  I just added about 10 more Copics to my own collection so I’m up to about 30…I need to sit and color more!


Isn’t this little Penny Black mouse just the cutest thing?  (I don’t see it in stock at eP at the moment, but I think it will be there soon.) I was so happy to see that this paper from my new Basic Grey Sultry 6×6 pad coordinated so well with my already-colored image!  Cardstock is Barely Banana and Garden Green.  This card is proof that you can salvage almost ANY mistake!  The mouse image was originally matted evenly all the way a round with the rosy dp and the Garden Gree layer.  I had done the piercing and decided to add some holes with my cropadile in the rosy layer up both sides.  The first side came out fine, but the cropadile punch guide slipped while I was punching down the second side (obviously I didn’t tighten the screw properly) and it was too late by the time I realized it.  The holes were totally uneven and some of them went all the way into the white layer – UGH!  Before trashing the entire card and walking away I decided to try trimming off both sides.  Funny thing – I actually like it better now than the way I had originally planned!

My monthly Stampin’ Up! Class is next Friday so I spent some time today working on those projects.  I still have some openings so if you’d like to come let me know.  The registration fee is $12.  I hate to admit it, but I’m still really tired and got very little done today.  It turned out to be a pretty busy week and I still haven’t fully recovered from all that StampMania fun!  I hope you’re having a good weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!

    Hate to say it, but you and your copics need to come north to the Central Valley for a visit. 🙂 I got stuck in “rush hour” traffic going to stampmania the night before. Took 2 1/2 hrs from Dodger stadium to Disneyland so I’ve had my fill of So Calif driving for a bit; but StampMania was more than worth it. 🙂 Thanks for making my first one a blast.
