Loves Rubberstamps - Sunday Inspiration Blog Hop

Good Sunday Morning Friends!

I hope  you are enjoying your weekend!

Welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps weekly Sensational Sunday Blog Hop! The Design Team has created some gorgeous projects for your Inspiration. Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, each stop will have a full list of links. One of the Design Team posts is the hop's Sensational Sunday Sweet Spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $10 Loves Rubberstamps store gift certificate. So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love for the Designers! You have until Saturday, May 4th, at 8pm CST. Have fun and we hope that you enjoy the hop!

If you've arrived here from Dangina's blog you are right on track! If not, I have posted the whole blog hop list below just in case you get lost along the way!

This card was made for my friend and secret sister, Jackie.  You may have seen her as our April Guest Designer over at Loves Rubberstamps.  She is so sweet and very witty.    I have used a combo of stamps, Magnolia Stone Path and Tilda with Rubber Boots stamped on cryogen with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I have colored them with copics.  This was my first attempt to color African America skin and I was pleased with how the color came out.  I added some extra pink around the image with Worn Lipstick distress ink.   The papers are Echo Park This and That collection.   I finished her off with some ribbon and a crocheted doily.

Copics used: 

Skin:  E11, E13, E21, E25
Hair:  E41, E43, E44, E49
Hat:  E40, E41, E43
Dress:  BG10, BG32, BF32, BG34
Boots:  R00, R20, R22
Path:  E41, E43, E44, W1, W3, W5, W7

For the inside, I used matching papers from Echo Park.  The sentiment is by Print Works.

Your next stop on the hop is Shanna!

Athina (you are here!)
