Two months from today, this will be me. Football season starts in just two short months. I can hardly believe it.
I created this card for the Copic Creations Challenge #7, which was to color brunette hair. I immediately thought of this fun Suzy Toronto image from Art Gone Wild. I love everything Suzy Toronoto, just like I love everything Buckeye. So, with that, I love this card.
I stamped the image with Marvy dye black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers. Patterned paper, colored cardstock, and Ohio State ribbon were also used on the card. The little pom-poms are actually from a chalk set (which I sadly never used). I just colored the white pom-poms with a Copic marker and adhered to the card. I like the effect, though it is not a new idea. I did the same thing last year with this image.
But, this was the first time making this girl a Buckeye fan with her scarlet and gray. I think I'm going to make another card just like this, so that I can use them as thank you cards to two former co-workers. They are letting me buy their football tickets this year.
Two months from today!!! Go Buckeyes!!!
