i miss you

When I saw this image All Smiles at DZ Doodles I knew I wanted to use it for a "i miss you" card. I miss Madison and knew this would be a perfect card to send someone, who I missed. I used my warm gray Copics on this image. When I walk the boys to school we see a cat, Dusty, almost every day and pet him. He is a combination of gray and brown, so I used those colors for this image. Madison had green eyes, so I wanted to use the same color for this cat, which made me think of this pattern paper from Emporium (CTMH). The other paper (baby pink, white daisy and sweet leaf) are from CTMH, but the warm gray is custom made. Yes, it is the first digital paper I made myself. I have been watching some videos on YouTube and I could not find the right color of gray to match my cat, so I made my own.

I purchased a digital swatch guide from Sally Lynn MacDonald, Inky Heart, and used the color W5 - Warm Gray to create my own texture paper.

Here is a close up of the warm gray paper I created. Isn't it cool? The only way you can tell it isn't textured, is to touch it. Love it!

Materials used:

Paper - Emporium (CTMH), baby pink, sweet leaf and white daisy cardstock (CTMH), W5 - Warm Gray texture (digital paper by Kim), Solar Crest white (Neenah)

Stamps - All Smiles (digital stamp by DZ Doodles), Say It In Style (CTMH)

Ink - Copics, black (CTMH)

Accessories - classic ovals and scallop oval nestabilities (Spellbinders), bigger brads (CTMH), pink gingham ribbon (CTMH), hologram glitter glue ( Stencil Scrapbook Collection), pop dots (SU)

Take time to create!
