I created my flower with lace, matte finish, twinkling H20's and Silk Acrylic paint. I used the twinkling H20's and Precious Metal Effect Paint on the background and papers. I colored my image with Copic Markers -skin E000, E00, R20; hair E18, E25, E50; head covering BG10, BG11, V06, V12; flowers V09, V17, YR15; hummingbirds E40, E41, BG10, BG11.

For my card today, I just had to ink up this adorable image.  She's called Summer Swinging by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I inked her up with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped the image onto Copic Xpress It Blending Card.  I of course colored her with my copic markers (for all of your copic marker needs, click HERE.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20

My design paper is called Here and Now by Echo Park.  The swirl in the upper right corner was made using a Memory Box die (Tab will be getting these in the store soon).  The corner element in the bottom left corner was made using the Filigree Corner Die by La La Land Crafts.  Here are a few more pictures:

Isn't She Lovely

Happy Saturday,

There is a chill in the air this morning... Fall is in the air. I am not ready for that but Mother Nature definitely has other plans.

Today I have created an altered canvas using a Prima Doll Stamp. I colored her with Copic - skin E000, E00 R20, Hair E18, E25, E50, Dress R000, R01, R02. I added shabby pink frantage to the bodice of her gown. On her headband I used glitter with some Gilded Mica. For the finishing touches on my doll I added a lace skirt, flower trim and belt with ribbon and black pearls. I painted the canvas with acrylic pant then stencil it with Viva Sand .....To complete may canvas I added flower and white ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week. Karen

Special Moments Preorder

For reasons I do not know, Magnolia Sweden has begun delaying shipment of their new lines to the distributor in the US. So, instead of getting the collection when it is first available, I am just getting it now as I prefer not to order direct for a variety of reasons.

So, to compensate for the delay, I am offering the stamps at an even lower price than usualy. If you haven't already gotten your Special Moments stamps, you're going to get them now at a great price!!! I have also lowered the price on ALL Magnolia stamps in the store!

PREORDER NOW! These stamps will be shipping in about 2 weeks.

Sweet Pea, Little Green by Rhea

Today I am sharing Little Green by Sweet Pea Stamps.  I love the faces on these stamps. They are great for practicing coloring the shadows and highlights of a face as well as the eyes.  The hair on is another great practice too.  Never, stop practicing :)
This may not be one of my best but that's ok.  I have no problem in sharing my not so favorite pieces as well as my favorite pieces.  I do like how the background turned out with the texturing and the different green tones blended together.  I textured with alcohol and a piece of upholstery swatch.   Greens are not my favorite color and they can be difficult to blend.  However, G21, G94 and G99 are fabulous!  And they blend like a dream.
