Wet Puddle Fun (TCPTUES173)

Hey there! I LOVED the colors over at TCP Tuesday 173 this week, so I decided to play along, I've missed using my adorable TCP stamps :) It's a great color challenge over there this week. Check it! 

I had this embossed cardtock laying around from Ev's birthday party invitations (see last post...) and it seemed to be the perfect fit for this color combo. I pulled out one of my fave TCP sets Wet Puddle, and gave it a go with my Copics, which I haven't used in a while! I think I did a little better with the hair, but I need to take a Copics class so I can learn and get better! I paper pieced her jacket. I also did a little paper piercing along the left side, and some punching with my fave edger punch. I made the "puddle" with a punched oval stamped with the "bubble" stamp from the set. I gave her a giant sparkly orange button on her jacket ;) I completed my card with some orange bakers twine and a yellow button.

For the finishing touch, I decorated the inside, inspired by awesome TCP designer Jenny Peterson, and you should REALLY click on that link to go see her adorable card with these colors! Her card is COMPLETELY perfect! I LOVE it!!! :)

Well, that is it for me tonight! I hope you like my first TCP/Copic/fussy cut card in AWHILE! LOL, have a stellar evening!

DUST IT OFF!: How 'bout dusting off a TECHNIQUE you haven't used in months? For me Copic markers and fussy cutting needed a dust-off! Plus, only cardstock scraps were used on this card :)
