. . . it's time to come Colouring In Scrapland

I'm thrilled to be joining

Colouring In Scrapland

as Guest Designer for the 
mid-challenge reminder
for the
March Anything Goes Challenge

The challenge is sponsored by
Gerda Steiner Designs
and the awesome prize is
$15 to spend in her store.


Today I have used the Dog On Scooter Vrooming By digital stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs, the generous March challenge sponsor, to make a fun birthday card.

I added the super cute digital image to a panel of digital paper, created a digital sentiment and printed the panel on white textured cardstock.  I heat set the panel, then coloured the image with Copic markers.  I usually use "Copic friendly" cardstock with my Copic markers but thought the texture would work well with the "mixed media" panel.  What do you think?  I wanted my dog to be like "Snoopy", so just added shading to add some shadows and dimension.

I matted the front panel to make a 6x6" top folding card.
I added a 1/16" black mat to the image panel using my Perfect Layers Ruler
and it fitted perfectly on the 6x6" base.

I matted the inside of the card to match the front of the card.
It looked a bit empty inside, so I stamped the sentiment (yes, the completed card fitted OK inside the MISTI, the top half sticking out the top end and it was not damaged when closing the MISTI for stamping).  I confess that I should have used smooth cardstock inside the card.  Delicate detailed sentiments stamp wonderfully with the MISTI but textured cardstock makes for a real challenge, even with repeat stamping, so I used a black Copic multiliner pen to "fill" the gaps and neaten the edges.

The sentiment reads
wishing you another
year of being

NOW it's YOUR turn!
