Here's My Fuzzy Wuzzy ...

categories: , ,
Ta-daaaaaaaah!  I've finished my first crafty project in my new craft space and let me tell you ... it was incredible to actually be able to find things when I needed them. I was even motivated to put things BACK where I found them.  Ahhh ... the crafty bliss ...

So here's the skinny ... the Sketch with a Spin (SSS48) challenge is to make a card using this sketch ...

... and to make something "fuzzy-wuzzy" on it.  So just for the record, my "fuzzy-wuzzy" element is the flowers.  I thought long and hard about making something on the actual butterfly fuzzy but I got inspired to go a different path ... 

Copic Creations is celebrating their one year blogversary with a challenge to use your favorite Copic technique (reference Copic Creations Challenge #24).  Mine is feather blending. 

Here's my take on these challenges:

As I mentioned, I had something special in mind for the butterfly so I also used this challenge as an opportunity to get-to-know my Copic markers a little more. It was hit and miss for me this time since I'm a beginner, a.k.a. Copic marker Diva-wanna-be.  I'd start filling in the image and then would decide I didn't like the direction I was headed and start over.  I must have done this about 15 times or so before I finally landed on something I could live with.  After the entire image was finished, I dotted the "0" marker all over the image.  Then I completed the entire image by covering it with Spica to giving it a sparkly appearance. 



Here are the Copic colors I used on this project in addition to the "0" or Kryptonite as our friend Sally Lynn MacDonald would say!


Paper:  Bo Bunny (Shiitake Dot); Pink Paislee (Confidential & Ragged)
Stamps:  Autumn Leaves and Studio G
Ink:  Momento (Tuxedo Black)
Markers:  Copic; Spica (Black, Clear)
Karen Foster (Round Biggie Brads);
Imaginisce Bazzill Collection (Bling Buds);
Daisy Ribbon Felt
Die-cuts:  Spellbinders

Next up ... Crafty Diva night at my house tomorrow!  Can't wait!
