It's Not All Black and White

Hanging Around

Finally, I have a card I can share here with you. I've been working on a few other commitments. You can see my final card as a guest designer with Jen's Sketch For You to Try here. I've also been taking care of some Verve Visual cards. Then, Sunday I got whatever Josh has had for a whole week. It totally wiped me out. I didn't even get out of my pj's. But this afternoon my order from All That Scraps arrived, and it revived me enough to make this simple card using Monkey Love by C.C. Designs.I stamped with my new Palette ink pad in Noir Black. Can you believe that I needed yet ANOTHER black ink pad? None of mine were working with my limited supply of Copic markers. By the way, I did discover that my (brown) Tim Holtz Distress Inks work with the Copics too. So, after all of that, I colored this cute little guy with Stampin' Up! markers and a watercolor brush. Then outlined with Copic Cool Gray No. 1, the absolute perfect marker for shadowing. I used a Stamp-a-majig to rearrange the sentiment to my liking.
Tomorrow I'll have a realy simple "Back to Basics" Verve card for you. See ya then.

Ink- Noir (Palette)
Markers- SU pretty in pink, close to cocoa, chocolate chip, Copic Cool Grey No. 1

Bethany, I hope that you are feeling better! Being sick is NO fun!

Your card is super cute!!! I have this on my wish list as my daughter loves monkeys.

I've just gotten a few Copics and ordered the full SU! colour set of them and can't wait to use them! Thanks for the heads up on the shadowing ;) Hope that is one in my bunch I have.
