Are you ready to rock?! Well, i think i'm ready to sleep after this week of fun spring breakness.
So much that i was unable to muster the mojo to make this card until THIS MORNING!
I actually got up early before the kiddos were up... once i got the java in me, it wasnt so bad waking up an hour before everyone else. Perhaps i should do this more often. It's so quiet!
In any case, thank HEAVENS for good sketches! Sketches are by far my favorite challenges, especially when the mojo is lacking! Today i used the Just Us Girls sketch challenge 27!
Here's my card
I love this little guy! He reminds me of my boys who LOVE their drum set. We had to move the drum set to our porch just so we wouldnt have to hear it all hours of the day! Specific times only! But i love that they love all things music, and that they are just a little punky. :D
For my card i used DCWV Rockstar paper. It's a foil paper, so i got some nice glare goin' on in my photo. I didnt end up doing the scallops that were in the sketch. I thought my star punch was a little larger than it is. I thought, how clever i'll be with huge stars propping up the end of my card instead of scallops. When i busted out my star punch, i was very disappointed. Looks like i'll be buying those star nesties afterall! hahahaha!
Here's a quick close up view of milo, jammin' out!
This image color with copics is a really good example of how different the grey copics are! Milo himself has been colored with warm grey markers (W0, W1, W3) while the drums were color with neutral grey markers - my go to for black (N8, N6, N4) while the rims of the drums were colored with a cool grey marker to give the look of cold metal (C1). The skin of the drum was colored with E40 and then i blended it in with E000. But when that looked WAY too peachy in combo with all the grey's i went over the skin again with W0. It didnt take the peach out entirely, but it toned it down. Using any grey copic in a 0 or 1 is a great way to tone down a to bright of a color. :)
So thats what i have for you today! Soon it's going to be time to wake up the munchkin's as i actually have to get Jack ready for school today after a week and a half of not having school!
I dont know whether to rejoice or be sad. Spring break was fun, but yesterday was about overload on the crazy too much candy from easter, so I think this 3 hour break while he's in preschool will be lovely. :D
Dont forget to go to the PMS blog to see the creations from the design team and to see what else is being released ON THE 7th! Thats tomooooooorrrrrooooooow!
