This week at The Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog, our challenge is to make a Back to School card. I have been giving Rhubarb lots of attention lately, so I thought I'd give Cocoa a little time this week and chose An Apple for Cocoa as my focus image. I colored Cocoa with my Copics and then paper pieced his apple. I used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS121) for the card design.
I hand-wrote my sentiment to mimic writing on manuscript paper. After cutting out Cocoa and his apple with my nesties, I added him to the card with some pop dots. I Uni-ball white opaque pen provided the highlighting on the apple.
I found a Fiskar's notebook paper border bunch at a scrapbooking yard sale last weekend. It was perfect for this card. I resisted the urge to do lots of inking and just lightly went around the edges of the "notebook" paper.
