Tiddly Inks Catch Up

Oh my but I have to add "epic fail" to my resume this week... I have been so caught up in my craft studio move and redesign, volleyball tourneys, parties for my daughter and work that I have totally spaced out posting my last few projects for Tiddly Inks...  You would think I went blond this week or something! hehe

So, first is my post for Inspiration Friday... This is a new image at Tiddly Inks that I just love.  It's called "Hopping By - Wren" and I think she is adorable!  I inked her up with my Copics, then cut her into the octagon shape.  I added papers from My Minds Eye along with lots of ribbon / lace embellishment from a fun pack I picked up in the $2.00 bins at Michaels.  Then I finished it off with this wonderful wire accented butterfly that came in the fabric department in a long strand of multicolored flutterbys.  It's a wonderful spring-looking color pallet that makes me think of Easter and spring blossoms.

The second thing I want to share today is a project I did for a new challenge we have going on over at Tiddly Inks.  It's time to stretch out of the comfy card zone and try something new.  Our challenge is "Anything but a card" this next few weeks.  Remember, you need to use a Tiddly Ink image on your project to be eligible for the prizes or features.  

For my project I wanted to make a journal for my daughter - she's going through so many changes and growing up so fast that I thought it would be a great way for her to get her writing again.  I used a bunch of scraps of some great design papers to cover the binder and add some accents to it.  I added some die cut tags that have "Me, Myself, I" on them in acrylic letters.  Then I inked up another adorable image from Tiddly Inks called "Aida Gonna Miss You", fussy cut her out and popped her on the main tag.  That's it, nothing to extravagant or difficult.  Now let's see what you can do with our challenge this week... Time to stretch!

Simon Says Stamp - Easter/Spring
