Life - Loves Rubberstamps Weekly Challenge!

Hello Friends,

It seems like I have been in a whirl cloud for a while now, I hope to get back to normal and get more posts up very soon!  But for today, I have another challenge for you from Loves Rubberstamps!  This week we want to see a sentiment on your creation.  So make sure to have one front and center!

Our sponsor this week is Meljen Designs!

Do you ever have one of those crafting days where things just don't work the way you intended?  Well, this card was one of those.  The image is not as I had expected at all.  I think Hazel from Whimsy stamps is just adorable, but I couldn't decide to make her dark for light and fun.  Oh well, here she is!  I colored her with light colors and then used distressing to darken her up.  How is that for compromise?  She is colored with copics and the image is torn and inked with Tim Holtz Weathered Wood distress ink.  I distressed the edges and inked them all.  The sentiment is by Tim Holtz and is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I added some ribbon, tulle and a flower to finish her off.

Copics used:
BG11, BG13, BG15, BG32
C1, C3, C5
E000, E00, E11, E13, E34, E50, E53, E53, E57, E81, E84, E87, E99
R20, R24, R59
W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
YR24, YR27

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Come on over to Loves Rubberstamps and play along with the Sentiment challenge!

Have a wonderful day!  And don't forget to live it as you imagine it!
Blessings until next time...
