Bon Voyage and Backpack! (and Copic Creations Challenge, too!)

Hello, friends and welcome to September! I've been working on this for a few days and at the end had to rush to have it ready. What else is new? The September challenge is brought to us by the talented Becca Feeken. The mission she gives us is to use a stamp from the Bon Voyage collection at Magnolia-licious and make a suitcase or backpack to go with it. I made the backpack from the excellent tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers. So much fun!! You can go HERE for more inspiration!
Have you seen the wonderful, colorful backpacks out there?! I almost couldn't resist buying one! How fun to choose papers and patterns and make your own! I started with the backpack and was guided by the Stampin Up dp called Woodland. It has Kraft and Wasabi with Chocolate and cream. I love it! I used the Emblem stamp from Magnolia-licious for a tone on tone look.
I also used a PTI set in SU ink to make the plaid on the Kraft card stock.
I know you won't be surprised to read that I colored Tilda with copics! I used E000, E11, E01 and R30 for her skin. E42 and E43 for the tans. To darken the shoes I added some E25 and blended with the lighter browns. For her had and dress I used G40 and YG17 to get a match for Wasabi green. I also added some E42 to "dull" it a bit. Similar colors were used on the sign and suitcase on which she is sitting. So stamps used are: Emblem (736), Suitcase and sign (#625) and Traveling Tilda (#377) which is not currently in stock. Please email Diana to see when more might come into the store.

My card fits the Copic Creations challenge (#34) for the next two weeks-using copics to color folds and pleats. I think so many of you do this as well as or better than I, so please join in the challenge! You can find all details here at Copic Creations. Mary always posts a tutorial or two along with the challenge! She's great that way!

A couple more photos and then I'm off! It's early to bed because it's a work day tomorrow! Oh, one more thing-the main panel is on dimension pieces so the takes pulls out easily for a specil sentiment! (there's nothing on it yet, though! LOL!)


As always, thanks so very much for visiting!
Have an excellent day!
Cheryl
