Polly is hosting this weeks special teaparty for Miss Boo's friend, Robin. Polly has challenged us to use washi tape or ribbon and to send some paper love and help perk Robin up.
Robin loves dogs, nature and her favourite colour is turquoise. I hope this Vera Lane Studio sweetie and her pooch bring some smiles.
I recently started to organise my craft room, after 2 hours I said to myself, self why are you torturing yourself? I have shelved that project for another time, but I did sort my background stash into colours. My turquoise/aqua stash is huge!
I printed these images on copy paper, coloured them with Prismacolour pencils, Zest it pencil blend and a colourless blending pencil and finished with a light sponging of distress ink, then added a few Copic highlights.
I fussy cut the images and slowly went through my stash to find the right background. Sometimes I think it would be quicker to start from scratch LOL.
To tie the pink hair in, I did a lot of stenciling with pink distress inks. The little black leaves are strips of washi tape.
Thank you for looking and I hope you get a chance to send inky hugs to Robin.

One could spend hours studying all that goes on in all your fabulous creations. Your dog reminds me of a steampunk version of Mad Magazine's Spy vs Spy cartoons. So cute, colorful, fun, cheery and beautiful! I hear ya about sorting through possibilities vs making new. If time were not an issue, I bet you could pick one with your eyes closed and then somehow make it work!

Susie, a fabulous background with these enchanting images! Brilliant use of the washi tape as leaves! I could sit and stare at this card for hours! I'm sure this lovely card will bring Robin lots of joy!
