Hey there! Today I have the last project of the Lil’ Inker Designs August release.
This is another sweet little set from the new Sugar Kissed Cottage line called Surprise!
These sweet girls are stamped on a rustic cream cardstock and colored with Copics. I used softer colors because of the vintage style of the image. I love the sentiment because it looks like the little brunette is actually surprised! I made the background paper with a stamp set and dots of acrylic paint. I couldn’t believe that I was unable to find a pink pattern paper in my massive stash that would work! That’s ok though…I have lots of background building stamp sets! lol
My little whoops on the card: after coloring and cutting out the balloons, I realized I had colored the girls with the light source coming from the upper right. I had to turn the balloons so their shine would be consistent! Now you see inside the crazy mind of a perfectionist! Ha!
Don’t forget that there are prizes along the hop! Comment on everyone’s blogs for a chance to win free stamps! You should’ve arrived here after traveling ‘across the pond’ from the crazy talented Mary’s blog. If not, you should bop on back to the Lil’ Inker Designs blog to get the full list of designers. Your next stop is down under to fantabulous Judith’s blog. Have fun! Thanks for stopping by! :o) alyssa
