Lacy Sunshine Guest Designer

Hello everyone,

Today I bring you a beautiful image that I colored from Lacy Sunshine. I was chosen to be their Guest Designer this week over on their challenge blog, and am so excited to work with these fun stamps for the very first time. Check out all their amazing Digi's in the Lacy Sunshine Shop.

 As you can tell I had a lot of fun creating this card. It was "Bloomin Marvelous"!

The green leaf is made from chipboard and is the very first thing I have ever stenciled. I used two colors of Tim Holtz distress ink pads along with the TH Blending tool to create the effect here. I also used various spellbinders dies along with Copic markers to color the image.
This card is being showcased on Lacy Sunshine's Challenge Blog which can be viewed HERE.

Kraftin Kimmie Challenge With Kit And Clowder

Hello There,

Tonight I have a super fun project to share with all of you. I have been practicing more with the Hair and Skin Class over at Kit and Clowder and finally feel like I am getting somewhere. This is my first attempt using all the colors suggested by Alyce, my instructor. Using the darker skin tones has been a true challenge for me but I feel like I am beginning to see a difference. I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did creating it.

 Copic Skin colors used: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, and R20
This project was submitted over at Kit and Clowder in a Kraftin Kimmie Contest as well as in the following challenges:
