S'up Dude?

(This is my second post for today...scroll down to see this week's Wags 'n Whiskers post!!)

This week, our new challenge at The Town Scrapper is "Save a Tree". We're asking you to be paper conscious this week by encouraging you to use up those scraps, or limit your project to one piece of cardstock. Now I know we all have that drawer or box FULL of scraps...this is your chance to use them up!!

I used this "soon-to-be-released" Victoria Case stamp exclusive to The Town Scrapper...this is "Moe". I LOVE this stamp...I think he may even be one of my favourites!! He was so much fun to colour up. I also decided to take advantage of this challenge to create another masculine card. No frilly, sparkly or flowery embellishments here...just those two brads holding the sentiment (which is from The Greeting Farm's "My Guy Ian" set that I got from The Town Scrapper). I pulled out a scrap of green Bazzill cardstock, and made a smaller card base measuring 4x5". The patterned paper is a double-sided scrap of My Mind's Eye paper, which was also from Phebe's store. Even guy cards need just a little pizazz...so I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the orange panel.



Moe was stamped on Neenah with Memento ink and coloured with Copic markers.



For those of you who like to know the colours used, here's your list:

Skin: E50, E13, E21, E25 and E29
Hair: 100, C7, C5 and a touch of C3...I just used these to "scribble" in strands of hair, and left some areas white
Shirt: YR00, YR02, YR04, YR07, E08
Pants: Boo, B12, B93, B95, B97, C7
Shoes: R27, R29, R59, 100, C7, C5, B60

I hope you have time to play along with us this week! Go take a look at what the other Scrapettes have made to inspire you!! You can link up your project there, and get your name in the running for a fantastic prize from The Town Scrapper!! (You'll also get to see projects by some of the newest amazingly talented members of our team!! )
