Miss You T Slide Card

Have you ever made a T Slide card?  Me either... before today!  

It's September 1st, the first Wednesday of the month so it's time for the In Style Stamps Sketch Challenge #13 and there's a little addition to the sketch this time, making it a T Slide card as well as following the sketch.  I'll direct you to the tutorial that was provided for me so you can try it too!  

Here's the link to Splitcoaststampers.  The prize for participating in the sketch challenge this month is 2 digital images if you use an In Style Stamps image.  One In Style Stamps digital image if you chose not to use one of their images.  All winners are selected by a random number generator.

This was a fun and challenging card for me to make.  I didn't have the same tools as was used in the tutorial so I needed to make some adjustments and I enjoy that kind of challenge.  You know, figuring things out, modifying them and making them work for me.   My card is 6 1/4" square because I wanted my digital image of Tracy to be nice and big for you to see and me to color.  ;)  The patterned paper on this card is from my almost gone pad of Basic Grey Urban Prairie.  The card stock is Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores and the Yellow is from a ream in my stash that I need to use more often!

Tracy is colored with Copic markers, here's what I used:
Hair:  R22, R37, R46, R59, E37, E44, E59
Skin:  E00, E000, E0000, E04, R02
Eyes: YG11, YG13
Shirt:  BG10, BG11, BG13
Pants:  C6, C3, C1
Stool, phone:  Y000, Y11, Y13, E43,E51
Here's a photo of the inside of my card.  As I was putting my prototype together I was thinking about which of my In Style Stamps digital images I'd like to use and what the inside of the card should say.  

One of my dear friends came to mind, she's struggling with life right now and has kind of pulled away.  I understand it's not about me and people we love sometimes need their own time and space to figure things out.   I think this would be a nice way to let her know I'm still here when she's ready. 
Maybe I can put my card through the mail slot in the door where she works and pray no one steps on it before she sees it first thing in the morning.

And, here's the sketch for you to try.  Be sure to stop by the In Style Stamps blog to see what our other fabulous designers have made with this sketch and what their T Square cards look like.
The prize for this sketch challenge are 2 digital images from In Style Stamps if you use and In Style Stamps image and one digital image if you don't.
