Leaving

Hi and welcome!  I haven't had a chance to do much Copic coloring lately and I'm feeling a bit rusty.  But I decided to pull out the old Copics today and color up this cute image from MFT.  I used the current sketch from MFT as well as the inspiration from Tag You're It, the Move cue word from CASology, the Stencil It theme from Simon Says Stamp and the colors from Color Throwdown.



I cut, stamped and colored the girl and bunny using the Color Throwdown colors.  For the card base and the tag, I stenciled over the English Brick Wall stencil with Cobblestone, Burnt Orange and Sparrow inks.  At the bottom, I sponged some Antique Linen and Pumice Stone inks to depict the ground.  The sentiment was white embossed and die-cut with a pierced flag die.



The tag, girl and bunny are all popped up on foam tape.




Thanks for visiting.

I use to be able to combine one project and 4 challenges (a lost art in my world at the moment), so kudos for multi-tasking. Love the brick coloring. Many thanks for joining us at Tag You're It Challenge.
