Make It Crafty CAS DT Entry

Hello friends!  Sorry it has been so long since I posted.  I have made this card for The Make It Crafty DT call.  There are still 2 more days to enter!

I would love to be on the team!  Their challenges are so much fun and really push you to improve your skills by stepping out of your comfort zone.  Zoe is always so generous with her knowledge of coloring and is a genuine, honest, good person!  I had the pleasure of meeting her at a coloring retreat in Texas a few years ago!  I chose Koala and Joey Digi Stamp for my image.  I thought it would be nice to color an animal image for a change.

I will list the copics below.  I used an embossing folder for the background that reminded me of the branch he is holding.  I embossed extra so I could make the embellishment.  The finished card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches.

For the fur I used the warm grays.
W0 all the way to W9 for the nose.
The pink in the ears is R01
The background is YG11 and B00
The ground is E43, E42, E31 and more warm grays for the bears shadows along with BV000
The leaves YG63 YG67 abd G85

I am also sharing a few CAS cards I made for some FB challenges that Make It Crafty had a short time ago.  I don't have a color list but wanted to share them here for more inspiration!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,


  1. Wow Janice, you've created a wonderful card with such fabulous texture on that Koala bear! His fur is outstanding! The embossed background is a perfect match for his eucalyptus leaf!
    The other cards are just as gorgeous and you have really mastered the art of Copic colouring my friend.
