Happy Earth Day!

I know I have already posted once today (so if you are looking for my Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week Post please scroll down or go HERE) but I made this card today and just had to post it.  In case you didn't know today is Earth Day, and I thought up this idea yesterday and just knew I had to get it made today to share.  So Happy Earth Day Everyone!


I did some more drawing on this card...yes that's right I drew the WHOLE WORLD!!! hehe :) And colored it with distress inks.  The critters and everything around the earth are colored with copics on copic paper.  This was my first experience with copic paper, it's really smooth to color on and I really liked it.  The background I colored with dried marigold distress ink after I glued everything down (it just needed something).  So that's why the color stops short of the images, but it kind of gives them a cool glowing effect.

Hope you have all had a good weekend and a nice Earth Day! :)
