Cat In The Bag Birthday Card

Cat In A Bag Birthday Card | Tracy Marie Lewis |

I am going to attempt to participate in the 30 days of coloring challenge at The Daily Marker. Specifically my goal is to color and post my coloring (even if it isn't a completed project) in March. I am retired right? And of course, we are having internet service issues where we are staying so I can tell that internet access could pose a problem. I might have to post more than one color project on a given day if I do lose the internet.

It will be fun to stay focused for a full 30 days. I do have watercolor pens, cake watercolors in a case, colored pencils (2 brands), Sharpie Markers and a complete set (yes all 358 colors) of Copic Sketch Markers. I even have a small sub-set of Copic Original Markers with the superfine nib in 24 dark colors for adding delicate details.

That's enough intro, now on to this specific project. Today I used more direction than I normally do, I picked a color challenge, a sketch challenge and subject matter challenge to create this cute Newton's Nook cat theme birthday card.

Challenges I combined to make this project:

I used two different Newton's Nook Designs stamp sets: "Newton's Birthday Bash" and the cupcake is from their "Love a La Carte" stamp set. The cupcake set does not have matching dies - yet, so I had to fussy cut, and I hate to fussy cut, but I did it:) I cut the top layer using Gina Marie's Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies. I cut a very thin mat of the berry color. I added white gel pen after the fact.

Copic Sketch Colors and Copic Original SuperFine nib (sf) colors used

Cat: N4, N5, N7 and N5sf
Bag and Cupcake Bottom:  E43, E44, E47, E49, E59sf

Coordinating items:

Gift Wrap, Party Hat and Cupcake Top-
Green: YG09, YG17
Yellow: Y21, Y23
Berry: RV66, R59, RV69
