Tiddly Inks - Give Thanks

There's a lot going on over at Tiddly Inks this morning... Christy has drawn up a couple of adorable new images for release and we have a new challenge starting today.  Head over and check out all the great inspiration from the design team then join in the fun and submit your project for a chance to win prizes!

The first card I wanted to share with you today was for our challenge theme - Giving Thanks.  I chose to use several great images including Poppy and Poppy Accents.  I just loved how easily having all these elements made the design of this card.  I had a blast coloring her with my Copics, then fussy cutting all the flowers so that I could toll and pop them off the background image.  The photo doesn't quite show how dimensional this one turned out, but you get the idea.  A simple dollar bin sentiment from Studio G finished it off.

The next one I wanted to show you was one of the new images just released today.  This one is called Coco Wishes.  How adorable is this one and what perfect timing as it is turning colder and starting to show signs of winter outside.  I started by printing the images on craft paper, then inking them with my Copics.  I finished off with some details created by using Prisma color pencils over the top of the Copics.  I like some of the details and color saturation on craft I was able to get trying this technique, but I need more practice to get it where I want it.  Anyway, I like the way it came out.  The banner was created in Photoshop starting with an image from Antsy Pants Digi's, then colored the same way.  A couple rows of marshmallows created a great border to go with the image.

I would like to enter the Poppy card in the following challenges:

Make it Monday - Link Party
Papertake Weekly - Flower Power
One Stitch At A Time - With Thanks
Crafty Catz Challenge - Anything Goes
Totally Paper Crafts - Cute and Girly

Wow Jodi both of your cards are gorgeous! The first one I saw on MIM and just had to come visit your blog. I am now a follower too. I love the colors of the first card - your coloring is amazing and I love all the flowers. Your second card is gorgeous too. I love how you have the rows of marshmallows to finish it off. Both images are so adorable too. It was a treat to see your first card on MIM and then to find the second one waiting when I came to visit. Your cards are gorgeous!!

Poppy is one of my favourite TI images and you've done a fabulous job with her and her amazing hair. I love the dimensional flowers...wonderful detail. Love the new image as well. Those marshmallows are so darn cute and suit the card perfectly. Very clever!

Gorgeous cards - your colouring is just beautiful. I love the poppy card with the warm colours and all the layering and dimension. Just lovely.

Thanks for joining in our With Thanks challenge at OSAAT this week.

Those are both fabulous and feature your gret coloring. I love the dimensional poppies in the top card, as well as the color combo.

The bottom card is my favorite of the two. I love all the wonderful detail, especially the marshmallow burder. I also totally adore that little bird that has his own marshmallow treat.

Sorry I've been mia in commenting on your blog. Losing power for almost a week is not fun. Fortunately, other than an antennae that crashed onto my kitchen roof and skylight, we came through Sandy mostly unscathed. We were lucky that the skylight held. Our roofer will get to us after he attends to those without roofs and/or holes in their roofs or houses.
