TPS Challenge #25

I've been hoarding this beautiful pad of 6x6 paper, Butterfly Garden from Pink Paislee.  I got it so long ago from Carlene the Pink Scrapper at her online Boutique.  I love shopping there, the price is right and the customer service is unbeatable!

The stamp is from Tickled Pink Stamps and it's called...

  Lil Victorian Steampunk Lolita Evie

I used Lindy's to add the shimmer, and Pearl Accents for
her earrings and buttons.
I also used Glossy Accents on her eyes and rose head piece
for added dimension.

I used Copics to color her hair, face and hand.
I paper pieced her dress, and colored in just a bit of shading.

Pretty pumped to be invited by Kenny & Elena to join their new tutorial page!  And in honor of the new venture I created this card and youtube vid featuring some of my favorite things, KennyK DigiStamps and Lindy's Stamp Gang Products:

This week's challenge over at Tickled Pink is the incorporation of "texture."  And of course, texture can mean anything really, so after much consideration I settled on what "texture" means to me! I used black Plastic Canvas for the background, and a smaller count white Plastic Canvas cut with a TH Baroque die.  The designer paper is embossed, and the bow is made of waxed linen beading thread. The flowers are dusted with rock candy.  Each item certainly adds it's own distinct "feel" to the project, and it was fun trying to bring them all together!  The stamp is new, and I love it because I think she looks like a teacher, lol! Once I'm better with copics, I'm going to try to make her look like me! Hahaha!
So here it is:

Kenny K is da Bomb!

I've loved KennyK for a long time... but now I love him more!  For one, he left me a really sweet comment... Second, he's from the Boogie Down (the Bronx) just like me!  And last, I just found his "other" KennyK website, and he is just so much more than I had imagined!  His work is everywhere!  You should check him out...    http://www.kennyk.com/  
This one is for you Kenny:

I'm Tickled Pink over Lindy's New Colors!

Here's a quickie... This adorable image is from Kellie's "Tickled Pink Stamps."  I've been wanting to do something fun with the new "Drink Me Silly" set that Lindy's Stamp Gang just released.  When I saw "Lil Evie" I knew she was it!  

I only used three out of the five in the "Drink Me Silly" set
A Bit O' Bubbly
Cosmopolitan Pink
My Mojito Green

Exciting Stuff!

I am so pumped! I recently found a great blog and awesome graphic design artist.  Her name is Cheri @ Graphicat Designs.  She is fresh and fearless and exciting, and I have fallen in love! LOL!  Her creations are "out of the box" and edgy, and with just the right touch of attitude! And maybe, just maybe... she might be a bit much for the more mild mannered, hahaha!  But I love how she addresses that in her blog in "A Small Disclaimer".

Well, I couldn't help myself and purchased an image.  I then decided to join her "sketch challenge," and I noticed that she mentioned that she was thinking of adding some members to her Design Team.  I contacted her, sent her some pics of my work, and told her I'd love to be considered for a spot on her mad crazy talented team! She so graciously offered me a guest spot, and I am simply delighted!

Here's my submission for her June Sketch Challenge at her brand spankin' new sketch challenge blog, please let me know what you think, and please go check Cheri and her Crafty Catz out and join the challenge!

Another late night...

I finished two more cards today!  I am so addicted... I can barely believe it!  Today I basically ran out of work as soon as the kids were gone.  I ran to Michael's and picked up a few sheets of paper and a bag of sand for my next ATC swap.  I made dinner in record time, got everyone to the table, checked-in on every one's day, wolfed down my food, and bailed out of cleaning and headed straight to the scrap room... is that obsessive or what!? Lol!  All because I don't want to miss the deadline for submitting a project to a few blogs I've been following.  So here are my cards,  let me know what you think, and thank you for stopping by!
