Oh the Places You'll Go

With so many kids packing up and going off to school in the next couple of weeks I thought it would be an appropriate time to ink up packitup-ABALLE. Rather than using the sentiment that came along with the image I decided to use the Dr. Suess quote Oh the Places You'll Go on the inside instead and the card will be a perfect going off to College/University card.

I inked her up with Memento ink on bella paper and colored her with Copics to match the Basic Grey June Bug collection. I shaded the image with pencils and gamsol and cut her out with the mega curved rectangular nestie. I can't quite remember the colors I sponged the edges with, but it may have been pixie dust and pink grapefruit. The white edge was created with Fiskars Apron Lace border punch, another one of my favorites!

Copics colors for this card image:
RV00, 11, 43, 46, 81, 83, 85
Y000, 00, 11, 15, 17
E41, 42, 15, 000, 00, 11
C0, 1, 2, 3, 5, W3, 5
B60, 93, 95, Blender

Shock of shocks...I don't think I'll be doing any colorin' today! It is sunny and warm and the pool is looking a little too tempting. This afternoon you'll find me in my floatie chair with a pina colada!

I found your blog from Kimmie's & WOW! Am I glad I did! Your coloring is fantastic. I'm following you now (that sounds stalkerish, doesn't it?). Hope you'll drop by my blog if you get the chance.
