Meet Emilio. He is a card I made for a Monster Swap hosted by the super sweet Miss Kelly. He will be leaving Maryland tomorrow, just in time for the deadline of the swap. He wanted me to wait until the last minute so that he wouldn't have to be in the dark for too long. At least that is my excuse. This stamp is Monster Bedtime from Victoria Case. The sketch for this week paired with this monster reminded me of the taggies blankets that babies just love to feel. I thought by making ribbon tags around the square would have the same effect and keep this sensitive guy comforted on his trip to Florida. LOL! I played along with the Victoria Case Stamp Challenge #9 for this card. He is colored with copics. I'll get the rest of the deets in a little later. Sorry for the poor picture quality. It was late and my camera does not co-operate very well with yellows, oranges, and yellow greens unless it is daylight. I didn't think to take another picture this morning as I already had all the cards packaged up. Lesson learned.
Karen this is for you. These are my markers and how I "organize" them. I got this wonderful carrying case from Archiver's and it perfectly holds all 213 of my copics. I really should put them into groups but I find taking a break and looking for the colors I want a little relaxing. I also keep a color sample swatch with my markers. That way I look at the sample to see what goes with the papers I've chosen then I go to my marker tote and grab the markers.
