Faux Paneling

Here are another two cards from the design team work for the October Newsletter of Technique Junkies.  This is a technique called faux paneling.  I had fun with this one.  I haven't used that chair stamp from Art Impressions for years.  My copic markers made it sooooo easy to color in.  Then the cat in the window stamp is from THAT is an old stamp!  It was fun to really get into the 3-D-ness of the card.  The bottom pieces are from a cuttlebug die.  Hope you enjoy! 

Tonight we had our Rhododendron Society meeting.  We were to dress up to 'celebrate' the Halloween holiday.  Since we only ahve one meeting a month, tonight was the night to have some fun.  Ray is a die-hard Oregon State Beavers fan.  The Beavers colors are Orange and Black.  There is another man named Mike in our group is also is a Beavers Fan but he is four times more die-hard than Ray.  He has season tickets to their games....and has had them for years!  Ray went with him to several of the games this year.  So....back to my story.......Ray decides that he is going as a Nightmare......he is going to wear an Oregon Ducks shirt.  he Ducks are Green and Yellow.  I decided to dig around the kid's dress up box and came up with a cape and crown to be a queen.  Nice and simple.  So....we walk into our meeting and there is Mike and he is dressed like a duck too.........everyone else saw it too....quite funny!  I know, I really had to be there!
