Here are TWO cards this week for the Sweet Stop sketch Challenge. You can see the sketch and the cards by the other designers by clicking on the Sweet Stop badget to the right! I had originally colored up the rabbit for this sketch but I had the background from the cat made up for it. When I put the two together, it just didn't work for me. The rabbit was too strong in color values for the background. So, I scrapped the idea of the original background and started over. I like the darker colors that I came up with for him. I hope you do too! He is colored with copic markers and I then used a rag with blender solution on it to dab some texture onto him. This card will go to my grandson, Jim, for his Valentines day card.
THEN one of the members of the copic junkies group shared how she stored her copic markers. Thank you Laurie for your suggestion! I had to search where there was a Container Store in our area and it happened to be close to where my husband works. So, today I went there to search for my own. The plastics containers have lids that I won'e use when I have the markers at home. I then found a neat 'tote' to put the plastic containers in. Now I feel that I can take most of the markers and they won't get lost! Yeah!!
Finally.....we get to have a few days away! My mom will be here and tend to the dog while we spend a few days with Ray's folks. We haven't been to their house for over a year and it is more than time. We will meet our car club in the morning to see the Salem Roadster show and go to MC from there. We will also have dinner with one of Ray's old high school buddies tomorrow night. It will be fun!
