Life has been super busy lately. We've had company over most of the week, I've worked a lot of hours, and we had to get my daughter back to college, so I haven't had much time to craft or do much of anything. I think everyone in Blog land must be going through the same thing, because it sure has been quiet around here lately. I usually get around fifty blog updates a day to read, and today I only got nineteen! That's a first. Anyway, because it was such a busy week, I only made ONE card! Can you believe it? And I STILL had to combine challenges! LOL! I made this card for this week Color and Sketch Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. My, what a challenge this Color Challenge was: Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, and Taken with Teal. Never in my life would I have combined a Teal color with a Brown color. I'm not sure how I feel about the color combo, but I do like the way the Teal makes my image pop.
The image is a little critter from Angel's Landing 'Aussie's Animals'. I have NO idea what the name of this animal is. I've never seen anything like him before. Does anyone in Blog land know what it is? But he is a cutie isn't he? I love the expression in his eyes and the way he is holding his chin. The designer paper is Stampin Up!, the swirls by the Prima Flowers are Cuttlebug Dies. The image was colored with Copic Markers.
Well I'm off to work again today, then I have two days off. I hope anyway. Usually I get called in on my days off too, so its hard to plan anything. Have a great day! Amy
I think I really like this colour combo and you're right , it really pops the cute little squirrel image right off the page! Great card Amy ! It really is a busy time of year for everyone and before you know it, it's Thanksgiving and Christmas. Ugh ! ;o) TracyReplyDelete
