Helllooooo Wednesday!!!

Hello lovies!!! Can you believe it is Wednesday already? How about July...can you believe it is July? Wow! Time sure is moving FAST! I have been trying to blog for the last 3 days, but every time I am on here it seems to be broken and acting up. I thought it was a sign ;) Thankfully today when I logged on I did not get an error message screen, so I am running with that!

Here is a card from Father's Day that I made for Mike. It is also my Copics Lesson 10 challenge....coloring black with a recipe to follow. I felt good coloring the vest and shoes, but that hair...whew! I struggle with coloring black hair in a large space like this! What a mess! Please do not look closely...ha ha :) So, this Copic process I am going through is slow, but I am seeing some improvement. I need to get some more practice time in. Hopefully, things in the house will stop breaking so that I can play more. I hope I did not just throw down a jinx there.
Team Dad:
Now this stamp is from The Greeting Farm. I just adore their Twilight inspired images (Pixie Dust Studio's rock too....check out my new Edward on the side...you can get one too on their website...Thank you Kathy!). This image is Jeremy from the Roll Call kit (completely and totally worth the money, by the way). It is inspired by the character Emmett, but that short hair reminded me of Jacob's New Moon 'do, so I used it for this card. I know...it is not truly Jacob because he is wearing a shirt...lol! I went a little crazy practicing adding white gel pen highlights, so his cheeks have to many shine spots :( I was NOT coloring this over...ha ha!!!
The recipe was to use at least 3 different patterned papers, 3 buttons and ribbon.
Supplies Used:
Card: DCWV Textured
Patterned Papers: We 'R Memory Keepers; Basic Grey
Stamp: Jeremy from the Roll Call Kit (The Greeting Farm)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Buttons: Autumn Leaves
Ribbon: Darice
Letter Stickers: I think these are CM...they are from my old school stash because I was too lazy to use the computer...lol!
Other: Copics; Cheesecloth; Inkessentials White Pen (Ranger)
I must have typitis today...I am terrible....Turtle Typing 101...I COULD blame on being tired, but I am pretty much this way all of the time ;) Hope you are all having a great "over-the-hump" day! Mmmmwahhh!
