Always Going To Be there...

Had fun in the studio working on Swings and Slides Wagon digi stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps the last couple of days.  When I saw this stamp I thought two things.  A book bag (future project) and an easel card.  I don't make cards often, I feel I get stuck on deciding what papers to use LOL .  I guess that is why I enjoy mix media in my cards and projects, its anything goes.  I can have several different kinds and there is no real order.  However, I do very much enjoy making cards.  I just wish I could make them more often. :) 

On to my card. :)
I colored these adorable characters with my Copics.  If you keep reading you will see the Copic recipes I used.  This was also my first time creating grass with Copics. I was scared, not even kidding. I am a perfectionist so it was important that I got it right. :) I took a deep breath, I didn't think about it.  I just dove right in! I will be honest and say that at first it did not look so hot, I was actually a bit worried LOL.  I reminded myself that this is layers work and it will take time, so take your time. I admit the grass was fun! I very much enjoyed making the grass, its as much fun as scribbling.  I'm very serious. :)

The sentiment I thought was fitting since big sister is pulling baby brother.  At least that is what I think the story is. :)  She will always be there to help! :)  The butterfly is a brad.  I wanted to keep this simple, but it needed the butterfly.  I hope you like my card and that you will come back and watch my progress as I dabble more into Little Miss Muffet Stamps, especially the Polka dot Pals.  They are great challenge when coloring their faces! :)

  1. What a cute little easel card. I do have a soft spot for easels! I love your clouds and the grass looks fab! X

    1. Thank you Faye! :) This is my second easel card that I have done. The first one was a bit trickier...I really like interactive pop ups, sliders, anything that makes you interact with the card :)
