A Canadian Girl at Heart

Redonkulous Design Team Day :)

Here is my card for my Design Team. 
I love this can I not, I love being a Canadian :)
This image is called Welcome Home Soldier. She also comes in an American theme as well :)
See how considerate us Canadians are, we even thought of our neighbours, teehee.

 I coloured her in with my Copic markers.
Red tends to bleed in the copics, ask me how I know this ;)
I had coloured the tiny maple leaf on her shirt, then coloured the grey for the rest of her shirt.
Well guess what, it looked like I washed her shirt in hot water and the grey turned pink, lol.
So I printed off another piece of her shirt, coloured it with grey first then used my Stampin' Up markers for the red maple leaf.
I really like the fine tips of my Stampin Up markers for the finer details.
I used the greys on her because I wanted the reds and white to really pop.

Here is the inside of my card.
I used the extra pieces of my background paper and adhered it to my....I know you know the answer.......recipe cards....very good ;)
Then I backed it all up with the red paper.
I had some really neat stickers from camp that I wanted to use on my card. But when I brought them home, I realized they were tattoos. I still tried them but they didn't seem to work very well.
We used to like to dress up and cover up with tattoos on Canada Day ;)

Onto My Day:
Because you know I am still in bed when this post goes up ;)
My day hasn't even started yet.
But Kristy has school all day tomorrow, Ashley is gone away on her trip, so I think Heather and I are going to spend the day together.
We both want to do a bit of shopping and then I will treat her for lunch :)

Hope you all have a creative Wednesday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Fabulous card! I love how you colored her. That is a very cool image. Sounds like you have a fun day planned! :)

  2. I love your Canadian girl.
    Sorry you had to live and learn with the red Copic. And that it made you extra work. Good thing you had your Stampin Up markers to save the day.
    Is Ashley driving to Kingston?? That would be quite the drive.
