Guest Designer at Copic Marker Europe

Hello everyone, I am so much honoured to guest designing at Copic Marker Europe for a second time today. Thank you so much to them for giving me this wonderful chance! 

The card I show you today is made with another sweet image from the newest collection at Whiff of Joy 'We Are Family' called 'You Can Count on Me'. The papers I used for the background are from Simple Stories 'Generations'.

For colouring the image I used following colours:

Grey Mouse : W7, W5, W3, W2, W1 and W0
Brown Mouse: E57, E53, E33, E11 and YR20
For the ears, tummy and tail I added: R20, YR00 and R00
Ceeks: R02
Throusers: B93, B12 and B00
Shirt: Y17, Y15, Y11
Background: BG10 and G000
Ground: W3, W2, W0, 0

After I coloured the ground I added some points with the blender to give it a grainy effect.

Normally my cards have quite some embellishments on them, like flowers, lace, and much more. But always when I use those papers from Simple Stories I think any embellies would be too much. It would cover too many of the lovely details on the papers. So I left them away, just added two banners with a saying, which are from the same papers as well. This way it keeps the focus on the image which I quite like as well. My card is perfect for a children birthday.

Now I wish everyone a happy day! 
Hugs, Karina
