This next one technically also qualifies for the color challenge (she does have artichoke in her dress), but it's really for the Sketch challenge (CC194). I used my new Princess Anya stamp for this one...love those Anyas & I heard we can expect to see more Anyas in the near future...woo-hoo!! Great layout, it was fun to try. More Riding Hood Red & Basic Gray with a little Prism Aluminum cardstock, embossed with the Cuttlebug Textiles embossing folder. I Used the same colors of Copics with the addition of E00 & G40 for her skin & eyeshadow. Oh, I almost forgot...I used C1 for shadowing around the images. It's almost always what I use because it's subtle, but does add some depth (almost sounds like I know what I'm doing...it's a nice illusion, lol!!)
I have another RAK to share with you today too :) ! This is one I received from my friend Tonya! Beautiful layout, colors (Black, Pomegranate & Pink) & choice of images (Sweet Always)...isn't it awesome?! Tonya just started blogging recently and I think you're going to really like what you find over at Ribbon Paper Ink! Thanks Tonya, you & your cards never failed to amaze & inspire me :) !!!
That's it for today. I've been neglecting my beautiful new SU stamps a bit, but do have some fun things in the works for my hostess club girls and a few things on the workbench too!! So many great stamps, so little stamping time. What's a girl to do, lol!! I also have some great new ODBD stamps that should be arriving in my mailbox anyday. I've seen 'em online & can't wait to introduce them to some ink...and share them with you :) ! I also have a simple little masking tutorial to share with you soon. So, stay tuned for that. Thanks for stopping by :) . Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!!
