This card was inspired by the lovely Diva Niki and her challenge for us today over at the High Hopes Blog. She would like us to create a project that has "no corners!" I thought I could get away with making a rectangular shaped card if I lopped off the corners with my corner rounder punch, and I was right!! She said it fit the challenge perfectly! Some of the other Divas are doing round cards and other shaped cards too. If you want to join in, don't forget to link a photo on the HH blog so that you can have a chance to win some HH stamps next weekend!
I stamped Tidy Up Tillie onto Manga Drawing paper by Canson using Tsukeneko Tuxedo Black Ink (the best one to use when coloring with Copic markers).
I colored her and the pink background using Copics (colors pictured below). To add the highlights on her overalls and shirt, I waited about five or ten minutes after coloring them in so that the paper was dry thoroughly. Then I used my colorless blender to remove color in the places I wanted to appear lighter.
I did a lot of doodling on this card with my Signo white gel pen on the front and a purple gel pen on the inside. Plus I used my CB a lot, with various dies and templates. I wanted to give this card to a lady I know who works very hard at our community center as the care taker and manager of the place. I hope it helps her to feel appreciated for all her hard work!
