My interactive card

Hello peeps,

Interactive cards seem to be surging back in popularity again (do you remember those musical cards, light up cards were popular in the early 80s, oh maybe late 70s). I am trying my hand at a simple interactive card I made for the Color Me Creative Copic challenge this fortnight.

No the challenge is not about making an interactive card but rather about “Kitty and Dog Days” and coloring fur in fun and different ways.

I had lots of fun with coloring my doggy fur – never had much success coloring fur the “hairy” way (you know, the flicking-line method) – it just looks like a spikey mess for me. But I learnt going through Class 5 that there are more ways than that way to give my animal that cuddly and furry look. I used the dabbing-dots method that Suzanne teaches in that class and I much prefer this look than the spikey look. Take a look at my cuddly dog in his interactive glory:

Front and non-eventful view

Surprise - look what's he hiding behind!! Fun fun fun!

Oh I’m so tickled pink with my interactive card and doesn’t he look furry and cuddly too!!

To enter in the challenge, you can use any image you want as long as they are colored with any alcohol markers. Your card must also be newly created.

The winner of this challenge will win a $20 GC to SCACD, courtesy of Suzanne Dean. And when you play along the entire month (just 2 cards), you are also entered into the monthly drawing for the shopping spree at Oozak. How can you beat two prize opportunities – head on over to be inspired and get to coloring.
