Lol, I know that I definitely do some days. That's why I adore Chester Platypus by artist Sylvia Zet. I also felt like making a different from the ordinary shaped card so I made this one (I'm so tired I can't think of the name of it) and there is a tutorial for it over at Splitcoast Stampers.
The challenge this week over at Totally Stampalicious Monday is "Emboss It!" - either heat or dry embossed. I chose to dry emboss using an Embossing Folder and my Big Shot (well okay 2 embossing folders).
I had such a blast coloring Chester...I even decided to make my own background; he was looking really bare against a stark background. So I drew up the bushes and the grass line with a pencil and then went over it with my Copic Multi-Liner. Then I just layered it up and added my sentiments using pop-dots for a bit more dimension.
Copics: BG10, BG72, BG75, BG78; YR31, YR23; T3, T5; O; Multi-Liner
Ink: Tuxedo Black- Tsukineko; The blue ink is from Tim Holtz line of Distress Inks
(sorry I couldn't figure out the name - all my goodies are packed for the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival...WOOT!)
Cardstock: Basic Gray-SU; off white- Bazzill and it has a bit of sparkle to it.
DSP: Renaissance Faire Collection- Graphic 45
other: off white ribbon; tag (both unknown)
