Isn't this little guy the cutest? Do you ever have days where you just feel like things are not jellin' right? I instantly fell in love with this cutie patootie digital image entitled Sumpin' Wrong as illustrated by Maurie Manning. Maurie is a very talented illustrator and recently approached me to see if I'd be willing to try some of her digital images for card making to which I said "yes!"
I used Copic markers (EOO, E02, BG01, BG05, BG09, BG10, B39, B93, B95, E29, E37, R20, 0) and a white highlighting marker to color the image. Marianne Walker has a great blog full of Copic tutorials. I found a great one for coloring jeans. I wanted them to look stonewashed.
I generated my sentiment, which reads "some days are tougher than others," on my computer and used WordArt to put it in the circle. I wanted to roughen up some of the cardstock edges to go along with the theme of a rough day, so I used deckle kraft edger scissors. Stampin' Up's double rectangle punch was used to thread my navy grosgrain ribbon through the circle sentiment. The checked designer paper is by Stampin Up, too. The last thing I added were some corkscrew pieces of navy cardstock.
Can't you just see a lot of various uses for this precious little guy?
