Here he is, the first little guy I colored with my new copics. What a great christmas gift from the hubby!!! I'm still figuring out what the heck to do with them and realize 12 is not enough!!! I can color a turtle or a seal, that's about it!! But valentine's is right around the corner! woohoo!!
Anyway. this little guy is from whimsy stamps(be sure to check out my blog candy so you can win his little friend the skunk!). The paper is from K&Company and I love it, it's so thick and has a great texture!! I also did some paper piercing around the striped layer.
I'm using this card for Cute card Thursday's open stamp and for Claire's birthday blog candy. I also used this card as kind of a stretch for the wish on a scrap challenge(it's brand new). It was to create a card based on what you wear. Well I wear a lot of green, blue and gray and in the winter I always wear "turtle" neck sweaters. Finally, this little guy will also make his way over to the Whimsy challenge on paper craft planet which is to use flowers. I used a flower ribbon slide, not too flowery but oh well:)

Thanks for stoppin' by!



Oh this is fab, love the colours and the cute image, thanks for joining in the CCT challenge

Great card Erin and you've done a great job with the colouring. I use Promarkers (which I've been told are very similar) and found I couldn't stop collecting them!! Happy New Year to you x


Very nice! Fabulous job with the coloring Erin.
