Perfect Layers Blog Hop

Welcome to the cutest little perfect blog hop! For a second time, Tiddly Inks has decided to pair with Laura and her team at Perfect Paper Crafting.  The blog hop will run from Monday May 5 at 9:00 am PST to Friday May 9 midnight PST.


Up for grabs, we have a $50 Perfect Paper Crafting gift certificate and a $30 Tiddly Inks gift certificate, plus a 5% Tiddly Inks discount on all orders. Enter code: Tiddly5%

If you would like a chance to win one of those prizes, please hop along with us through some delightful inspiration.  Make sure and leave a little love every stop along the way.  Here's the list of hops to inspire you:

Jenny Peterson
Jodi --- You're here!  That means you're done!


For my card I worked with the adorable image from Tiddly Inks called Danni Dress Up.  Colored her with my Copics then fussy cut her out.

For the background I used a metal stencil I had with the airbrush system from Perfect Layers.  I have a couple of tips for this - make sure your marker is "very" wet, as that helps a lot.  I actually used a Fantastic Stick that I wet with my Copic re-inker.  Worked well!  The accent color on it is a cheap kids marker that worked in the system as well.  You have to be very patient and work it over and over again, but I am thrilled with the results.  I also used the Perfect Layer rules as I have been a fan of these for years and years.  They are a "must have" in my book as I don't craft without them. 


Make sure you stop by Christy's blog as she has drawn up a new image for release soon and has a free give away just for the blog hoppers!

Hope you enjoyed the hop today!!!
