Full Design Team Sensational Sunday Blog Hop

Hi Friends and Stampers,

Hope you are in the midst of a great Holly-Day!   We are doing a full team Design Team Blog Hop today!   I made a set of cards using the Creative Vision line of stamps Laura is carrying in her store.
There are more of them, but these are the ones I used today:

The inside reads, "It's a Jungle Out There".   I stamped the image directly on the Polka Paper, stamped it again on the X-Press Paper to color, and then one last time on the Animal Print paper I had on hand.  After coloring her face, hair, hands and boots, I colored the outfit and tail with my Copic Marker C7, so any areas that were not quite covered wouldn't show up.  Then it was off to fussy cutting land.  Now there are little dots on the stamp itself, but they blended nicely with the paper.  I just about ruined my vision trying to see the outline though, lol.   But it was worth it, lots of fun.  Copic Colors: Hair: YR21, YR23, E31, Face: E000, E00, E21, E93, BG10 (around the top of eyes), Boots: E27, E25, E23.  Ears: same as boots around the edges and then pink inner ear: R85, R83, R81.  For the Jewelry I used a silver wink of stella. 

For this one, I used the yellow Fawn Lawn Polka for the dress and in the areas that needed shaded, I high lighted with my Y19.  Again, I stamped the image onto the paper after I adhered the word bubble, stamped the image onto my Copic X-Press it paper and then stamped the image onto the Polka paper to cut out her dress.   Copic Colors: Face: E000, E00, E21, E93, BG10 (around the top of eyes). Hair: BV31, BV34, BV08, V28.  Shoes: C5, C3, C1, Flower: R85, R82, R81 - I used the paper for the center and colored Y19 in the shaded areas on the dress. 

OMGosh I love this one!  So funny.  I did try that little Copic Marker trick where you color up the image and then use a piece of terry cloth and squeeze on some Colorless Blender to the terry cloth and then pat on the clothes of the image. I have been trying this trick a few times with no success.  This time I learned to wait until the "small area" where I applied the Colorless Blender to seep into the dry areas and become, "less wet" if that makes any sense.   Then I applied it onto the clothing a few times and when over a couple areas a few more times til I saw a "texture" appear.  Okay that was fun.   Copic Colors: Face: E000, E00, E21, E93, BG10 (around the top of eyes).  Ball: R85, R83, R81.  Outfit: B24, B21, B000.  Shoes: R29, R24, W1, W0. Y19 to shade the paper next to the images. Hair: E37, E35, E34, E31. 

This one might be my Favorite.  I stamped her onto the Polka paper and then onto X-Press It paper, like before.  Again, I used the terry cloth and colorless blender trick, but this time I had too much or too saturated onto the cloth, so it really moved the colors around, but hey, who doesn't have a very worn terry cloth robe? lol.  The inside reads..."Prevent Sagging, eat till the wrinkles fill out".  Copic Colors: Face: E000, E00, E21, E93, BG10 (around the top of eyes). Hair: E02, E08, E18, E19. Robe: B2, B1, B00. Counter: N0, N2, N3, N1.  Back of Mirror: R85, R83, R81.  I used the Silver Wink of Stella for the outline of the mirror.  

Thank you for hopping along, here is the blog hop order:
