Wednesday with the Greeting Farm

>> Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Good Wednesday everyone. I cant believe it's already the middle of the week! Where does the time go?

My card for you today is a simple one, but i really liked how it turned out. I used another image that we colored for the class i taught at Scrapbook Heaven this past saturday. Man images that are already colored make for quick cards! haha. The image is from The Greeting Farm. Isnt he just the cutest??


No spiffy techniques for this card (other than copic coloring) so the layout is pretty self explanatory. I used the Nestabilities petite scallop circle for the image mat. I also chalk inked all of my edges with a Cat's Eye Chalk Ink in Charcoal.

COPIC COLORS
Owl Tummy & Eyes: First with E33, then shaded with E35 with a smidgen of E37 on the tummy. Also used the Colorless Blender on the eyelids for a highlight.
Rest of the Body: E30 then shaded sparingly with E33.
Leaves: First with G21 leaving the tips bare. Shaded with G24 and then blended everything (including bare tips) with G20.
Outlined entire image and inside the white of the eyes with N0.

Other essential elements
Cardstock Base: Kraft by Papertrey Ink. Green is Grasshopped by Bazzill, Orange is Festive by Bazzill. White is Neenah Solar White.
Stamps: Image and Sentiment by The Greeting Farm
Tools: Nestabilties Petite Scallop Circle large, Window Word punch by Stampin Up.
Accessories: Bellas Baubles in Espresso
