My niece Lizzy just started back to school, so I wanted to make her a card. She is in the 5th grade now. (Boy, how fast they grow up, huh?) The challenge this week at Can You Case It is a Pet Sketch Challenge. This worked great because Lizzy is obsessed with animals. When she was a toddler and even into ages 5 and 6, she would pretend to be different animals. It made my heart happy for her to love something so much. For the longest time, she said she was going to be an 'animal doctor' before she learned the word veterinarian. Then she wanted to be a paleontologist, and most recently has started talking about marine biology. She's only 10, so we have a long way to go before she really has to decide.
This card was made with the SSS Back to School stamp set. I stamped and then colored the cat and book with my Copics. Then I used the SSS Sunkist ink pad, Versamark ink, and a few of the stamps from the set to create the background using a technique from a Jennifer McGuire video.
I love how this card turned out and I hope to see you play along with us this week!
Have a good day.
