Better With You

 Hello and welcome!  I came up with the board for this week's Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge and I hope you'll find the time to have a go.  For my card, I knew I wanted to do some Copic colouring and create a wee scene so I went with Colouring-Critters-Scene to come up with this card.

Usually when I am Copic-colouring, I have a vague idea of what colours I want to use and then just pull them out as I go.  For this card, though, because there were a lot of elements, I decided to plan out my colours before I started so as to not have a mass of different colours.  Because I actually wrote down my colours for each element, I've included them here at the bottom.

After colouring all the various images, I cut them with my Scan n Cut and set them aside to work on the background.  Firstly, I masked off the card front with a rectangle mask and ink-blended blues and greens to represent a sky and ground.  Before removing the mask, I splattered on some ink as well as some white gouache and once that was all dry, I stamped the sentiment.

Finally, I added my coloured images and called it done.  Unfortunately, my little squirrel got a weepy eye as my ink obviously wasn't dry before I started colouring.
