I also wanted to give away a little prize so I'm going to be choosing one winner at random to to win a copy of the April / May issue of Designed To Color!! These magazines are just now going to be available in print and you can win a copy of your very own - just leave me a comment here to be entered!
I'm so excited to be starting you off on this fabulous hop - I really can't wait for it to go live so I can see what everyone made! I used LOTS of fabulous handmade goodies from Freckles & Pigtails as well as a GORGEOUS image from Saturated Canary that I printed at 5.5 inches and LOVED coloring it blown up like that. I always loved the way krista added these cute little bows to her girls so I found some recently and just HAD to pick up a pack so I finally used it on this page.
The doily is an awesome vintage pattern available at Freckles & Pigtails as well as the girl sentiment is a clear stamp also available there. I love the funky font.
Here is the Saturated Canary digital stamp a bit closer. I just really wanted her to be the center focus of this page. I printed her on cryogen cardstock and colored her with Copics. If you know me, you know I'm a BIT obssessed with the color teal and have a strip of it in my own hair. I normally color stamps to be used on cards and such to giveaway or sell but this image I colored JUST.FOR.ME. and LOVED it!
Here is a close up of the gorgeous yo-yo's and flat backed buttons available at Freckles & Pigtails. I love layering them together. They come in so many fun and gorgeous patterns!
The tag and girl icon stamp is also from Freckles & Pigtails - this store has so many fabulous embelishments for perfect for smashing, card making, scrapbooking and more! I'm also using my stamps more and more in my smash books. I love coloring something that I know I get to keep!
