CPS 164: Koala

Hi All,

I am playing along with the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this week: #164.  It was a nice sketch to work with - lots of space to create. Here it is:

Hmmmm, what could I do with it?  I immediately thought of the Critters at Some Odd Girl, and I chose the adorable Koala

My card base is Whisper White CS, and I made it loooooooong, just like the sketch.  The next layer is Blue Bayou, which was partially embossed with the Forest Branches Cuttlebug folder.  For the next panel, I used a piece of Porcelain Prints DSP, matted with a Basic Black piece.  I tied a piece of Striped Wild Wasabi ribbon in a knot to the left end of the card (I cut a slit in the fold to tie the ribbon through).

For the main panel, it is another piece of Porcelain Prints DSP, matted with Basic Black, and then Wild Wasabi CS.  I printed Koala onto PTI White CS, coloured it with Copics, and cut him out.
I cut out a few pieces of Wild Wasabi and cut them to different lengths, and then cut all of them with my Martha Stewart grass edge punch.  I mounted those on with Dimensionals in different layers and at different levels.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
