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 be in a monthly drawing for a $20 Loves Rubberstamps Gift Voucher!  We will draw the winner of the Voucher the 1st Sunday of each month! Remember, you have until 8:00 pm CST Saturday to leave your comments!

 Since a few weeks ago when our challenge was 4x9, I have been having fun with that size.  It is a bit new for me and I am loving it!  The size was perfect for this adorable Penny Black, Enjoy the Ride, image.  I received this image about six months ago and just loved her, but never had the chance to ink her up.  Well, now I have.  I inked her with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  She is colored with copics and the background of the image is done with Broken China and Brushed Corduroy Distress ink.  The image is cut out with Spellbinders, Labels 21.  The background papers are Tea for Two by Cosmo Cricket.

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11
Hair:  C1, C3, C5
Skirt:  G20, G24, G94, G99
Sweater:  E50, E53, E55
Flowers:  BV11, BV13, BV17, W5

    1. Hi Larelle - I used a foam applicator tool with distress inks. I rubbed the ink around the image but just tried to not get to close leaving the white around her. I hope that makes sense?
