Time Out Challenge, Marker Pop!, NBUS Challenge and I want to be a Superstar!!

Happy Monday!! I hope you are all enjoying your day. Char and I have the day off for the Jewish holiday. I have had time to do things like go to the gym, have breakfast with Char and my father, and do some chores around the house. I could go for Mondays off all year!!

Today I am posting a card that I finished last night. I received my new My Favorite Things "Harvest Mouse" set this week and I had a chance to play with it yesterday. I am entering it into My Favorite Things "You Could be a Card Design Superstar"contest.

I made a "peek a boo" card with it. First I die cut a space on the card front. I then stamped the leaves, the second mouse and all the leaves. As I was doing this, I decided to leave the elements in the front just black and white. I wanted to use Copic markers to color and as this was basically a one layer card, I did not want the coloring to show through. My happy medium was to color the mouse that would be peeking from the inside of the card.

I stamped the mouse onto the die cut that I had cut from the front and used Copic markers to color him in. Isn't he cute? I did some "dot" coloring on him after I was finished. I used both Copic and gel markers for that. I have done it on my monsters that I have colored before but doing it here was an experiment. I am not sure how I feel about it.

When I finished coloring in the mouse, I adhered him to the inside of the card.

I then stamped a simple sentiment from the same set inside. I wasn't sure if I wanted to decorate the inside or not but decided I liked it simple and clean. I know that this kind of card I would write things on the inside and by leaving it clean, there is more room to do so.

Again, I am entering this into the My Favorite Things "You Could be a Card Superstar!" contest.

I am also entering this into Marker Pop!'s #77 Fall/Autumn Challenge. This is the first time I have ever entered a challenge here and it makes me nervous!!

Another challenge I am entering it into is Darnell's NBUS #5 Challenge. Since these stamps and dies are brand new, this counts!! (I think!) And am entering the Time Out Challenge #39-"Make Your Mark."

I don't usually enter so many challenges at once but this card just happens to fit the bill!! I thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!!
