Hey there!

Well what do ya know... we've made it to another Friday already. Hellooo weekend! :)

So I've had some requests recently to share how I color up furry characters, specifically little Joe Joe the werewolf. And since I had some time yesterday afternoon I went ahead and shot a video of just that. You can catch it here or on the Color Me Copic blog... hope you like it!
The resulting card came together super quick because I just grabbed paper scraps and die cuts from the Mischievous line that were laying around in the clutter that is unfortunately still making its home on my desk. Hey, every little bit that makes it on to a card helps, right? Not only that, but I also dug into my stash of reeeally old embellishments and stamped my sentiment onto a metal rim tag. Talk about kickin' it old skool, LOL! :)

Ok, so I've got to make like a banana and split... have a good one my friends!
Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It
paper/die cuts- My Mind's Eye (Mischievous)
stamps- Sweet November (Joe Joe the werewolf), Studio G (sentiment)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox charcoal
Paper Trey Ink twine
metal rim tag
Copic markers:
fur- E50, E42, E31, E43, E35, E44, E47, R12
clothes- T5, T7, T9, YR14, YR18, E07
