I am so in love with this new set from the A Muse Studio catalog called, Fall in the Forest; and in particular, this little owl! I stamped him in Memento Onyx ink and colored it with Copic markers before cutting the little guy out. Then I set about making the focal panel and with a 1/2 circle punch, I tried to punch them as evenly spaced as possible on a stripe of A Muse Studio French Roast Woodgrain cardstock. Pretty close! It looked “okay” but I thought burlap would be a nice texture to add. At first I was thinking “nest” but then I tried covering up the back of the panel and I loved the peeks of burlap that showed through. The last step was to stamp the sentiment in Pumpkin ink on my Vanilla cardstock base – both are from A Muse Studio.
I was totally inspired by Cristena’s sketch challenge over on her Copictopia blog. While you are there, check out her on-line store where you can order any copic marker. As Cristena says, “We have all Copic colors – yes, even the ones that are hard to find and you can’t get them in the stores. ”
You can see I was fascinated by all of those circles in the sketch! Copic markers used: YR09, YR24, E15, E19, and Y35.
I hope you like this card as much as I do! Here are some other challenges I’d like to enter:
- Bloggers – fall colors
- Craft for the Craic – something with circles on it
- 4 Crafty Chicks – fall
- Creative Knockouts – Happy Fall Y’all
- Cute Card Thursday – awesome autumn
