Schorschi the donkey

Hi Crafters,

how are you today? I am feeling fine, though already pretty fed up with school. It's been only three weeks, I wonder how I will ever make it through the year. 

Today, I'd like to intruduce you to our newest familiy member Schorschi, isn't he adorable? I think he is so cute!

He originally is a Freebie digital stamp, and you can get him at Birka's. She had a few of her freebies made into actual stamp sets, Schorschi among them, and I won him last week at the Task for Two Panda Challenge. Thanks again Birka!

When he arrived I was having a rather tough day, and by the time the kids were in bed, I really needed a  bit of me-time. So, I coloured him with alcohol markers, in cool greys and neutral greys, and a bit of peachy pink for his ears and belly. Then I cut the panel to look like a torn page from a notebook and added the small happy Birthday sentiment strip, which is heat embossed, as usual.

For the background I wanted to imitate some of the beautiful pattered paper with water colour stripes that are out there at the moment. I chose a skin colour and mixed in the tinyest bit of red to match the pink on the ears and belly. As the panel is regular cardstock, I used only very little water. Then I die cut the panel to a convenient size and adhered it to a black card base.

Schorschis panel was popped up with foam tape and I also added a star shaped paper clip.

So, that's it from me today, I hope you have a good day
