Sending Koala Love

I had fun yesterday playing with my newest Lawn Fawn stamp sets.  I think my new favorite is Critters Down Under.  The little koala in the set is just the cutest!  I thought he would be perfect for this week's Lawnscaping Challenge, Color Splash:


Here is my card-with a splash of peachy pink:


Color splash challenges are THE hardest for me because I love lots of colors and patterns.  I do love this little guy, however.  I acgtually used him as a little experiment, too.  I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers instead of Copics.  There is an awesome deal on them this week at A.C. Moore ($7.88 for a set of 6), so I picked up the set of Warm Greys to try.  Definitely not the same quality as Copics, so I will definitely not be switching over.  However, with this sale, they are an inexpensive way to add to my colors as I build my Copic collection.

Oh, and to finish off my little koala, I added a super cute black nose with Ranger's Enamel Accents.  It makes is look like a real little nose!  Definitely going to try that again!

Thanks for popping by today!
