I tried to color in the image so that it would give the impression that he is a little furry. I used about four different oranges and the colorless blender. It's okay, but not great. I am going to an Advanced Copic class on Sunday. I am hoping to learn some cool tricks and techniques for creating textures in my coloring. I think it's a good thing that for the most part my family does not read my blog since I have been to Indiana for classes at Papertrix far more often that I have been to visit them! Hey, it's not my fault they don't have any cool stamp stores close to where they live!

Hello! I have a quick Halloween card to share tonight. On Monday, my MIL and I went shopping; we hit Michael's, Trees and Trends and Jo-Ann's all in the same afternoon. I wanted to go to Michael's to get a bag/organizer for my Copic markers. I was able to find what I was looking for and will show you the picture and explanation of that later. I will say, I think I have fund the perfect system for me! Anyway while we were there I noticed that they had a lot of new clear stamp sets in stock, including several cute sets from Recollections, which is their brand from what I have been told. There are a couple of cute little monsters in this set and since Halloween is approaching, this is the one that I picked out. This is one of those cards that started out as a much better idea in my head that didn't quite translate onto the paper! I started with my image, stamped and colored it with Copic markers and picked that sentiment to go with it. Then I thought it would be cute to emboss all those eyeballs staring out, but they kind of just look like weird polka dots or something. To finish it off, I added photo corners and brads that are also from Recollections.
