Le Parfum des Roses

I'm excited to share that I've been asked by my friend Tracy to guest at Copic Marker Europe today!! I've created this fun project to share and hope it brings you some inspiration for your next project. I used to pick out my decorative papers first but now I'm the other way around so sometimes it's impossible to find a perfect coordination but in this case I think the odds were in my favor. Check it out...

The images I used is from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and is called Le Parfum des Roses which means "The Smell of Roses." This is actually one of my first images to make it into rubber stamp form so it's exciting to use! The two background stamps are from Whimsy's Vintage Travel Postage Stamps set. Thank you to Jen (JLJ Designs) for the hat pins which coordinated perfectly with it project! And finally the chippies I used are Swirly Corners from Make it Crafty.

I supose since this is for Copic inspirational blog I should list some colors!! I think I used G40, G21 and G82 for the greens, plus a little BG93 and BG96 on the leaves; No-N8 for the blacks and whites; the reds are R14, R17, R27, R46 and R59; skin tones are E000, E00, E21, E53 and R11, R12 for blush; eyes are B91 and B95; and lastly the hair, which I *think* YR23, YR24 and E55.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!
