Missing You

Over the past week, I've been working on getting some cards together to send to Operation Write Home.  This missing you card using the current sketch from Retro Sketches will be going in the package.

Missing You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's Pajamas
My focal image is the big eared bunny from the Hare Today set from The Cat's Pajamas.  I colored the bunny with Copic markers, then paper pieced the bunny's umbrella using a scrap of dotted patterned paper.  After matting the image on green cardstock, I adhered it to a piece of chevron patterned paper.  I ran a strip of coordinating blue cardstock across the panel, just beneath the umbrella image, then added a banner flag strip on top.  The "missing you" sentiment was stamped on a circle, then adhered to the end of the banner strip using foam tape.

And, speaking of The Cat's Pajamas, you still have a few more days to play along with the current anything goes themed TCP Tuesday challenge.  Check out all the details here.

Materials Used:
Hare Today stamp set, CutUps Framed Up 2 dies (The Cat's Pajamas); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); markers (Copic); Simply Chartreuse, Ocean Tides, and Smokey Shadow cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Collecting Moments 6x6 paper pad (Fancy Pants); circle punches (EK Success); foam tape
