Thanksgiving

WELCOME to some new followers. I'm so happy to have you visiting here. Hope that you'll find something you enjoy viewing. And it's finally Friday. Love my Fridays. This evening a stamp buddy & I are driving up to Spartanburg to take another Ritz glitter class at Scrapbook Creations. What fun. Today's card is an oldie Stampability House Mouse image(Pumpkin Pie, HMIR1016), colored with copics. I don't list the colors I use, but if you should ever wish to know this info, please leave a comment & I'll get the marker number info to you. My method of coloring is to start with a general idea of which marker family I want, then experiment with different marker combos,and I don't usually write down which ones I use. I work on a scratch piece laying down colors, until I decide on one that fits my image.(This is NOT the way the Copic classes teach, BTW!!!  I do know the correct way to color, but my cards are not for a teaching classroom;  I do them for those I care about...so I do the cards to suit what I want! LOL) Basically with copic coloring, as with any medium, you want a blended look, so if my color choices achieve that on my scratch paper, I go with those colors.
Specs: Diecut with S/Binders Resplendent Rectangle - S5-147, and I used 2 of the dies in the set for the image & mat, the smallest for the sentiment.
Mat paper is from a 12x12 sheet of My Mind's Eye - Fall's Swirl; houndstooth is DCWV 12x12 pack called Natural Stack.
 Darice EF Fleur de Lis design on houndstooth, but it does not show up very well. Cardbase is orange Recollections - lightweight paper.
This will be entered in the Outlawz Friday Copic/Promarker Challenge
As always, thanks so much for spending some time with me, and have a wonderful weekend. Hugs
 
EDIT:  Miss Linda of Snail's Space was kind enough to let me know this image would fit into the Penny Black & More Challenge so I am going to also enter my little meeces into this challenge. Thanks so much for the heads up Linda! Appreciate it. You might want to check out this challenge...some awesome talent to be enjoyed.
