Kitty Cat Marci

Hi everyone! Samantha here!  Today I am bringing you something a little different. I made a funky, grunge inspired card.  My card was inspired by this super cool Kitty Cat Marci stamp from La-La Land Crafts.  I thought this stamp would be great for a teenie bopper card, so that was my inspiration for this card.

Teens can be too cool for your traditional every day greeting card, so I really wanted to make this one super funky. I used bright colors, blacks, grey. I even used this cool foil embellished patterned paper.

So your tip for today is to explore styles and color schemes that are a little different. Think a little outside your comfort zone.  This was a little outside my comfort zone because I usually do girly, cutesy cards. :)

Here is a close-up of my Copic coloring:

I used the following Copic colors to create this image:
  • For the flower: R01, R02, Y19, YG45
  • For the clothing: V12, V15, V17, C6, C9, C10, YG03, YG05, YG07
  • For the skin: E00, E21, E02
  • For the hair: E25, E27, E29
  • I also used the C6 for the shadow.

That's all for today! Don't forget about our challenge this week! Make sure to play along for a chance to win a great prize.
