I have to admit, I am having a hard time picking which stamps to use. I was blessed enough to get quite a few new stamps for my birthday. I stamped them all off on to Gina K or Cryogen paper and now I find myself sitting there for ages trying to pick which one to color. I wish I could color them all at once! I know, I know....I shouldn't complain, since many people would like to have my "dilemma". So, I'll shut up now before one of you reaches through my computer screen and smacks me.
In the back of my head, I had a list going of the cards I need to make. Then I started to browse blogs for some color inspiration. I lucked out at Bente's blog. I loved how she colored the Koala Hugs Tilda with primarily greys. I have wanted this image since it came out, and a wonderful friend got it for me for my birthday. Lucky me! My father-in-law loves koalas, so I decided to use it for his Father's Day card.
Here's what I came up with:
This is a pocket card. The tag lifts out to read: "You are not LIKE a father to me, You ARE a father to me." I made the tag narrow so that I can fit a gift card in the pocket, too.
So, let's see: I used black rain dots, grey mesh, My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks paper, black and white twisted twine, and black bazzill. The MME papers are actually grey, but my camera wanted to reinterpret them today.
Copics are as follows:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E50, E31, E25
Shoes: R21, R20, R00, C3, C1
Dress: C5, C3, C1
Koala: N5, N3, N1, R00
Ground/Grass: YG67, YG63, E31, E25
I had to make her shoes pink, since it's my favorite color and he associates it with me.
I'm entering this card in the Charisma Cardz Challenge to make a pocket card.
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! I was wondering why my stomach was growling. I got lost in coloring and creating, and had no idea how much time had passed. I know I'm not the only one who does that, right?!?
