LOL!!!! That is what Paula said when I showed her this card....not that she thought it stunk...more that it reminded her of the show Friends! Hahahaha! I'd have to agree! I've always loved this miss you lots cat on a chair and have pondered buying it a few times then finally caved a while back. It has taken me a while to color it tho...NOT enough colouring time in my day I tell ya! If this were a dog it would remind me of my girl who sits on the back of the sofa looking out the window patiently waiting for me to get home from work. Every morning I give her a little peck on the head and say...momma's got to go to work...and she sulks her head while she looks at me with sad eyes....OMG...it BREAKS MY HEART!!!!!!!!!!!!
As usual, I did start with copics on this card....R05, 8, 29 and 59 for the chair. Then I took my pencils to it to add some highlights with white and shading with deep greys. I wish you could see this up close and personal because I really had a hard time getting a good pic and in person, the chair looks like it could be leather. Bright red plush leather! Oh I wanna just sink in it! This is another one of my cards which I call 'white space'....I really don't have a problem with lots of white space, actually, I REALLY like it and should do it more often. There is absolutely NOWHERE for your eye to wander except for the image....which is where it should go!
Are you all watching the superbowl? Me...NO! I did get the heads up from hubby that it was half time and just finished watching The Who.....oh the memories! I'm almost embarassed to say that I knew the words to EVERY song they sang! Remember that movie Tommy...OMG...I was OBSESSED with it! LOL! I said to Mark that maybe in 20-25 years we will be watching Dave at half time! hehehe! Did I mention that we have SIX....yes SIX...concerts lined up for this summer! WHOOOHOOOO!!!!!!!!!! And we may add Houston to the line up which will make SEVEN! SOOOO FUN!
Now don't forget....pull out those LOVEY stamps for this weeks Bellarific challenge! I've got mine done and it is sitting here looking all pretty and glittery just waiting for Friday.
In other news....THE PICKLE STORE IS NOT CLOSING....I repeat....NOT CLOSING! A birdie told me that those rumors were flying so I just wanted to get that out here. AND....I'll be teaching copic classes there starting in March! ARE YOU EXCITED! Our first class will be geared toward beginner techniques concentrating on basic shading and feathering but I'll spill anything and everything you wanna know! Copics will NOT be supplied for this class and you must bring your own. Please contact the store for more information. If you can't make a weeknight class, let the store know and if there is enough interest we'll see about a class on a Saturday.
That's it folks! See ya soon!
