Welcome to My Mouse Dreams!
Today's project is a challenge that I stumbled across. I have been working on getting out of my craft funk that I have been in. So working on challenges has been my "push" to craft more.
I recently starting found Copic Marker tutorials on You Tube and I am loving these markers. I actually owned a few, but never understood how to use them or that the numbers and letters had meaning. So I am ordering a few more and hope to really start working on my stamping and coloring techniques.
OK so for today's challenge, it is sponsored by Bitten by the Bug 2.
The challenge was to create anything with a school theme. For example school concerts or thank you cards that most people are giving to their children's teacher right now. OH NO! I actually home school my kids. So it did say it could be field trip related and I came up with a great card. My family saw it and say "MOM" that really doesn't "fit" in the school theme. So I created this cute little Thank You card.
OK so lets break this card down
Red is Real Red from Stampin Up 4.25 x 5.5 inches
The pattern Paper is from DaisyD's cut at 4 x 5.25 inches
Blue Circle Background
from Stretch Your Imagination
cut at size 4 x 5.25 inches
I then took the piece and ran it through my Cuttlebug
using a 5x7 folder Polka Dot
To ensure the entire blue piece stuck to the pattern piece
I ran it through my Zyron Sticker Maker
it is from the Create a Critter Cartridge
cut at 3 inches.
The dark blue shadow and brown base are scrap pieces I had laying around.
The green leaves are from a 4x6 mat pad I had from K & Company, the Ocean Solid Pad.
I used Stampin Up Old Olive to ink the sides of the leaves.
The red is a scrap of old Stampin Up Christmas pack of paper from years ago.
I then stamped the cute face from Peachy Keen Everyday Faces Assortment.
I used the largest face in this assortment with Memento Black Ink.
I colored the eyes with my white gel pen, then added a layer of Glossy Accents.
I added some pink stickles to the cheeks.
paper is another scrap I had from Stampin Up.
The sentiment is from Peachy Keen's Stamp of the Month Club February 2014
the ink is also Memento Black. I used the same old olive ink around the edges
the tag is from Cricut Cartridge Girls Make Up Party

Have a Magical Day!
