Polly

For my project today, I've used Polly rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps.  I did a little creative color placement on her face to define it more and give her larger eyes.  The paper I selected only had yellow so I tried not to pull in too many other colors.  Making her outfit black and white helps draw attention to her head, rose and envelope.  Then I also kept the accessories and paper toned down.


These are the Copic markers I used on Polly:

E0000, 000, 21, 33, 35, BV20, R11
YG01, 23, 97
C1, 3, W8
E47, 08, 19, YR14
YR24, 23, 31, 30, Y23, E23
W9, 6, 5, 3
BV23

This and other Whimsy Stamps are also available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps


I've added details to the face and gave her larger eyes. 
As a comparison you can see the before and after of her face. 
These characters are adorable and I love the added color in the eyes.

Snail Mail

I was inspired by the way Annabel colored Belated Birthday Snails with all the texture that I knew I had to try.  So I picked up Snail Mail rubber stamp by Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  However, instead of using pencils, I gave it a go with markers so my details isn't as controlled.  But hay, he turned out okie dokie in my book.


I didn't really have a good sentiment that I liked so I used the background decorative paper and wrote in my own. It's a word search paper and I used a black pen to write in my sentiment and blue to circle it.  After all... I found it!


These are the Copic markers used on Snail Mail:

R05, 46, 59, BV23
E41, 42, 43, 49
C0, 3, 5, W9
Y11, 35, YR15, 21, 24, E31, 33, 35
B000, 45, 39, 93
G28, YG63, 21

Upon a Star

I'm working on background and this is another technique I've tried out.  I smudged Distress Ink on a non-stick craft mat and then pressed the paper into the ink. I think it's suppose to blend and mix up but this particular paper soaked it up immediately. I repeated a couple times then realizing it wasn't going to do what I wanted, I sponged around the outside with black soot and called it quits.


Here are the Copic marks I used on Upon a Star:

E13, 09, 08, 0000
W8, 0
C5, 3, 0
Y11, 26

I also used the glow in the dark embossing powder, also from Lawn Fawn.

Birthday Memories - Raccoon

I've used the Birthday Memories designer series papers from Stampin' Up! to create this project and followed a card idea by Carolyn King.  I also used some Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments for the sentiment and gems for sparkle. She has some other great layouts on her blog too.
