Hi! I made this card for the Dirty Girl sketch challenge. I have had this adorable set from The Cat's Pajamas for awhile now with this idea in my head, I finally got around to getting it onto a card. I have now had the privilege of hanging out 2 times with the owner of Cat's Pajamas, Alma, both in Texas and at CHA. I don't know how I didn't manage to get a picture with her, but I want to tell you what a fabulous girl she is. So warm and funny and her stamps are just adorable. On Friday night in Chicago, a local stamp store owner invited a bunch of us to come over and have some pizza and other yummy food (including wine) and do some shopping. I was able to grab some more of her stamps there, so I will have a few more projects coming up with those.
FYI, Alma is having a 25% off summer sale on her in stock stamps, what a great time to pick up some of these adorable images!
I love the retro look and feel of Alma's designs and thougth a black and white card would be fun. I also used this card to try out my brand new set of Copic Markers. Did I mention that I am now a Copic Certified Instructor? Whoohoo! I will start putting together some tutorials about what I am learning (I need some practice still:) For this card I stamped the image in Black StazOn and used the C1 and C5 colors to add some shading on just the inside of the space bubble and the poodle. I added Crystal Effects to the the swirls and collar on the poodle. The dp is from a pack of handmade paper a friend gave to me, it has embossed stars on it.
Thanks so much for stamping by!
