Make a Joyful Noise!


Hello  and  WELCOME !  This is a card i created for our MarkerPOP's  Inspiration Monday post!  

I want to share a card I made with the adorable stap called Rock N' Roll Donnie from Inky Impressions.   This little mouse is just the cutest ittle fella!


This is a close up of this little mouse.   Doesn't he have the sweetest little face?

i used Cryogen (Curious Metallic) paper and stamped my image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (Tsukineko).  I used Copic  Sketch Alcohol ink markers to color this image.  I crated a technique I call "Marbelized" Backgrounds.
Copics Used
Fur:  E44, E47, E49 and R20, Copic Opaque White InkJacket and Pants:  B21, B24, B27, B29
Bow Tie:  R20, R22, R24
Shades:  T0, T1, T3 and R22 (Reflection)
Guitar:  E30, E33, E35, E37, E39


Have you ever wanted to try something different with your flower embellishments?   Well I decided to use two different types of paper to create this rose.   I wanted to give the appearance of  fragile rose petals opening.  The center was created by cutting paper cardstock freehand.   The outer fragile petals were created using punched vellum petals.   I love the fragile look.

I am linking this card with the following wonderful challenges! 

I want to share that my Creative Background class is now available at Color me Creative Classroom!   Check it out!  

Hugs, Marie!
