Tuesday Morning Sketches with Jess' College Fund Digi's

Hi folks,

It's a long weekend here in Canada and I did manage to scrape out a little craft room time to make this birthday card for a friend of ours. She is an avid photographer (here's a link to her photography business page on Facebook if you would like to check it out - beautiful shots of the local wildlife) and I thought this new image from Jess' College Fund Digi's would be perfect for her birthday card (though without glasses would have been better in this case).

I can't encourage you enough to stop by Jess' College Fund to check out the very reasonably priced digital images. I have all but one - the most recently released image since I have been crazy busy this weekend and haven't had time yet to purchase it. Will fix that later today!

card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, kraft card stock base and mat (I've taken a liking to doing an extra mat in the same colour as my card base recently. Love the extra layer.). Brown textured card stock from Michael's for the mats.
  • patterned paper: Basic Grey "Sweet Threads"
  • digital image: Jess' College Fund "Jess Taking Pictures", coloured with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E02, E93, E04, E43, E47, E49, E39, E29, E77, E25, YG0000, YG01, YG21, YG23, T4, T6, T8) with a little white gelly roll accent on the camera lens. I also sponged around the image with CTMH Blush ink to pick up on the pink in the papers. Yes, I DO have a Copic Airbrush and it DOES sit in one of the towers of my desk. I really should take it out and leave it ON my desk and plugged in so I can use it more often. sigh. Just call me Queen of the unused tools!
  • sentiment: Verve "Borderline"
  • Spellbinders Petite Ovals
  • paper flowers and embroidery floss from my stash
  • layout: Tuesday Morning Sketches #223 (oops - should have uploaded yesterday to meet the posting deadline!)
additional challenges for this card:
