Need a lift?

Need a lift???

Of course you do.

Encouragement... we all need it.  It is a card stash standard, perhaps as important as a birthday or sympathy card.  And, like birthday and sympathy cards, I am better at them when I don't need them yet.

I think this koala image is like mac & cheese... warm and comforting.  He is ready to be sent out to encourage and comfort a friend.
Like most of my colored images of late, he is stamped on smooth Bristol paper with Memento Tuxedo Black then colored with Copic markers.  The body of the koala was colored with various tones of cool grays and the belly, mustache, and inner ears were colored with warm grays.

Other details:

  • Stamps: Wozlo the koala by DoodleFactory and sentiment all from Starving Artistamps; 
  • Ink: Memento tuxedo black; Tim Holtz distress ink: frayed burlap and peeled paint;
  • Paper: Kraft and tan cardstock; smooth Bristol paper; 7 Gypsies patterned pattern;
  • Accessories: sponge, Copic markers, foam tape, drop punch;
I hope this cuddly koala inspires you to make an encouraging card for someone today...  once you have one in your stash... you will see many people that need it. ;)
