I recently won blog candy from SCACD but the prize stamp was a surprise! The stamp arrived on Monday and I was delighted to receive Garden Eyes, which is from Susana Loves Stamps fabulous new Eyes of Beauty and Dreams Collection.
Here's my first card with her, using SCS Sketch #378!
I pulled out my Copic markers and started coloring her face. It came out a bit darker than I would have liked, so I gave her black hair instead of the blonde I had planned. Since it's spring and the trees are beginning to sport their YG colors*, I found some favorite older Memory Box Enchanted papers and took my palette from them. Then I was thrilled to discover that Pearlescent Lavender Brilliance ink matched the B60 series really well, so I used that to sponge ink over the die to give Garden Eyes a nice background.
The sentiment is from the Mixed Messages set by Paper Trey Ink!
*Yes. It's true. I think in Copic colors now.
Thanks for visiting today!
I shall enter this card in the following challenges:
• Outlawz Promarker/Copic Fridays "Anything Goes" challenge
• Simon Says Stamp "Use your favorite tool" challenge -- Mine are Copics and/or Dies.
