Today's card is for Whimsy Stamps Challenge and the image I chose to use is one of the very sweet Wee Stamp images and this one is called I Love You Slow Much.
This month's theme is Ribbons and Lace and although you don't have to use a Whimsy image on your challenge creation, it would be great if you did! As always there are 3 challenge prizes to be won - a $15 gift certificate, 5 digi stamps, and 1 surprise rubber stamp.
I found a piece of paper that's been in my stash forever and decided to go ahead and use it. It is from Prima's Jack n' Jill collection and I like this a lot because it's printed on both sides so I didn't have to worry about finding a piece to go along with it. I think I tied 5 bows before I tossed them aside and decided to go with a straight piece of ribbon. I admire those that tie those magnificent bows but I am usually not very happy with mine so a piece of ribbon works too. The lace is Whimsy's Lace Tape and this is the bees knees... it has sticky tape on the back and there's no mess or hassle; just cut it and lay it down. I used some flowers and brads from my stash and the zipper is a Prima Junkyard Trinket.
I've been thinking about my Prisma pencils a lot lately and knew you could use them with Copics so I thought I'd give it a whirl with this card and I like the look and will be doing it a lot more. I added little bits of red pencil along the brown Copic of the snail's shell, along his face and the little gal's hair. Baby steps... I always think it's better to start with a little and once I get a little braver with the pencils, I'll add more. I see I smuged some of the distress ink on her face - I was too lazy too mask and that's the price you pay although I don't know why I never see those things until the project is finished, the picture taken and it's on my computer screen! I added some Stardust Stickles to the wings, flowers in her hair and the antennae. I also made a few dots with a Viva Pearl Pen but they sort of disappeared once I started with the Shabby Blue Frantage (I do like using that product, yes I do!).
