I just wanted to share a project I had made using the November sketch.  I used a faceless stamp by hÄnglar & stÄnglar and colored in a face using my Copic markers.  This was a little different than what I've normally worked with since the eyes are a little closer together and I had to figure out a work around.  But after coloring up this darling, I thought the best background would be a little ground stamp from Make it Crafty and I just so happened to have the rubber stamp of Petals and Palings - perfect! 

I stamped the edges of the Petals & Palings fence on both sides so I didn't have to mask the girl stamp.  So basically... the left side is on the right and the right side is on the left.  :D  Then to put the whole project together, I used the fabulous sketch provided for this month and some fun spring time decorative paper.  It's not exactly spring in my area but they were just the right colors to go along with this red head. 

Finally as a last embellishment, I used a flower corner punch to punch out the yellow flowers.  They were curled using an embossing tool and glued on top of the flowers in the image.  Then a self sticking gem was placed in the center.  I hope you like this project and thanks for coming by!

Fancy Sunbonnet Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating today!  I couldn't think of a better card than to show one using  Fancy Sunbonnet Thanksgiving from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  This one was is available in rubber in the LMMS store.  It's such a fun image to color and that turkey will make for a yummy meal, I'm sure.  :D

I love autumn colors, but I chose papers that were slightly less traditional.  I was still able to pull in the browns an creams, but this time instead of orange and reds, I used peaches and rust.

Thank you to everyone who comes by my blog for inspiration!  Thank you to those who leave comments and socialize in other ways.  And especially thank you to all the Little Misses out there who color and create with LMM stamps!  You're all the best and it's because of you that I'm able to enjoy what I do a little bit more.  *Hugs

Couple Expecting Baby

The challenge at Make it Colourful for the month of November is about "skin and muscle definition" and there's still time to participate.  The image I colored for this challenge is Couple Expecting, which you've seen already, but now I have it mounted on on a card.  This one isn't my favorite but I worked wanted to work with colors that I normally ignore; hence the green and purple combination.  The card is simple and I added just a few self-sticking gems and ribbon.

The muscle areas I tried to focus on was the man's face, neck and arm; I even gave him laugh lines at the corner of his eyes!  :D  For her, I left the muscles soft and less pronounced then tried to work a little bit on adding makeup to her eyes, cheeks, lips and fingernails.
