New release at Tiddly Inks

There is a new release over at Tiddly Inks and I gotta tell ya, I love these girls. One of the reason I like them so much is that I actually had the opportunity to be with Christy when she was creating these. I was blown away watching the way she put them together. Amazing!!!!

For my card, I printed the image on a sheet of design paper that I had in my stash. I colored her lightly using colored pencils, then doodled the border. I added a simple sentiment stamp that seemed to fit the picture. For the background, I stippled ink through a stencil, then used some colored pencils and a white gel pen to highlight some of the stenciled areas. It's simple in design, but striking in appearance. I love the way it looks like it's right out of a book.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Paper Take Weekly - Spring has sprung
Creative Card Crew - Spring
Love to Scrap - Anything goes
Paper Makeup - Anything goes
Craft Your Passion - No designer papers
