SugarPea Designs CCC7 and a Black Friday Sale!

Happy Friday!  I'm excited about sleeping in today instead of getting up and going to work--or fighting the crowds for Black Friday deals.  If you want to do some online shopping, SugarPea Designs is having its biggest sale of the year right now.  Everything in the store is 30% off, so it's a great time to grab the sets that have been on your wishlist . . .

There's also a new color challenge going on right now.  The colors are red, blue, gray, and green.  They'd make a great holiday card, but I couldn't resist using the bookworm from the Read Between the Lines set yet again.  That set just calls out to my book-loving teacher heart!

You Make the Grade card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from SugarPea Designs
I stamped the bookworm in black ink on a pale gray cardstock panel, then colored the image with Copic markers.  The colored cardstock is different than the paper I usually use when I color with Copics, so the image not as well shaded as I would have liked.  The lenses of the worm's glasses were filled in with Glossy Accents for a glass-like look. 

To ground the worm, I stamped a stack of three books beneath the image, using a different color pigment ink for each book.  The "you make the grade" sentiment from the Teacher's Pet set was stamped beneath the worm image.  I added a strip of red cardstock along the bottom of the panel, then ran a narrow strip of gray cardstock along the top edge of the red strip for a finished look.  The panel was adhered to a blue card base.
