Happy Holly-Day Friday!
Today is my day to post at the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog. I stayed with the Challenge this week and used a die-namic Mini Tabs Quartet on my card. The Challenge this week is to use dies or punches somewhere on your project. Since I mostly use a die on every project, this was a fun one for me :) Today I am showing the newly released and soon to be in the store Heart Key Marci by La La Land Crafts. I inked her up in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her up with my Copic Markers (coming to the Loves Rubberstamps Store soon!) I found a really great sketch over at The Sweet Shop and got started.
Have you ever seen something on a blog that just totally inspired you? So much that you just could not wait to get some crafty time in? That is how I felt about a couple different things I saw. The first thing that inspired me was this VIDEO by Sandy Allnock. I love finding new color combinations for skin and hair. I love these new combinations. The second thing I saw was on Kim O' Connell's Blog. And I could not wait to try out this charcoal pencil trick. I went to the front room where we store many many things, lol, and I was looking for just any charcoal pencil I could find and I actually had a General's drawing kit with a soft charcoal pencil in it! Wow. Who knew I had that? lol. Now I would love to get the Pastel Chalk pencil at some point, but I am good with this charcoal pencil for the time being. What do you think? I totally see the deepened shadows and I love the over all effect.
I used to list all my Copic Marker's I used on every project until one day they were just in my way on the desk and I decided that no one ever really read all those anyway. But now that I have rediscovered what it is to find good combinations again, I think I will start listing them out again, lol. At least for this post.

So confession time, I bought paper! lol. But it was just a couple sheets of 12X12. It's American Crafts Sweetie Pie collection. I did however, follow the rules, I did find this super great ribbon in my stash! I mean, who knew the perfect ribbon was in there? lol. I am hopeless, but I love rediscovering what I have. You see, there must be a reason why I love the collect, I knew it would come in handy some day, right? Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it, lol.
Okay, well it's a work day for me, and I will be working this weekend. I hope to see your Fabulous creations on the Challenge blog with your yummy dies and punches.
Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments!
