What's Perking?

Good Evening everyone! I guess you were all wondering where I'd gone after posting three times yesterday and then nothing all day today....!!!! There is a very good reason though... My husband and I were building floor to ceiling shelveing to hold all my rubber stamps! It took us a few hours this afternoon but now they are complete and look fantastic. As I was organizing all my stamps I kept saying to myself 'oh, I had forgotten about this one'.... and 'hey, I thought I'd lost that one'!! I had a lot of fun 'finding' my stamps again.

My card this evening is for two challenges. Firstly for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge (MTSC76), which I turned 90 degrees to better suit my image and sentiment. Here is the sketch :

And secondly for The Cat's Pajamas Color Challenge #112 :

I colored the coffee pot using a combination of Copic Markers and PrismaColor pencils because I only have a few markers and a larger range of pencils. I wasn't sure if I could combine both coloring techniques on one image, but I think it turned out respectably!

Well I must sign off now and go organize the rest of my craft space, as you know how that goes - you reorganize one area and the rest of the room needs tidying/reorganizing.....

Stamps : Hero Arts (What's perking)
Paper : Chocolate Chip, Cream, Deja View Plum
Ink : Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories : Small scallop border punch, Copic Markers, PrismaColor pencils, Cream Organdy ribbon from ACMoore
