Missing You Sooo Much

Hello CAS-ual Fridays fans!  Are you getting excited for the fall season to start?  I just can’t wait for the cooler weather, pumpkin spice lattes, and fall scented candles!

For my card today, I’m showcasing the Bushy Tailed stamp set.

I started out by stamping my image on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored it in with my Copic markers.  I cut an A2 size piece of some Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up my background using some hills stencil from my stash, with some distress oxide inks.  I also used a clouds border stencil to create the sky.

To create my fall scene for my cute critter, I stepped out of my comfort zone and drew some tress and leaves in the background, using my Copic markers.  This is the first time I’ve ever drawn a scene from scratch.  I got so nervous I thought I was going to hurl, haha! (just kidding)  I think it turned out okay, I just need more practice.  After all this is “handmade” not Hallmark, right?

I added more depth by using different colors of Copic markers to create the leaves.

I used my cool gray Copic markers to add shadows and make it look more realistic.  I adhered my little critter and finished the design by stamping the sentiment.

Even though my drawing wasn’t perfect, I still love how this card turned out.

I think using different distress inks for my background added more depth and dimension to my card.
