Pop on your sunglasses!!!


I'm not really sure what possessed me to use this colour combo today - maybe it's because I am playing with the few Copic markers I have recently bought - and this is what I ended up with - LOL. Actually I really like the colours together, and I don't usually use Green Galore - especially in such big areas!! I've teamed it here with Purely Pomegranate. I received this divine Stamping Bella "Missmatch Ketto" stamp on Tuesday - so thought I'd ink her up and play with my copics and see what I came up with! The lovely Bec over at Bizzy Becs has been a real gem helping me decide which copics would be the best to start off with - I don't have many so am limited with any shading I can do - but think I'm getting hooked. I still need a HEAP of practice so don't look too closely at Miss Ketto - LOL!! I still LOVE to watercolour - I was doing some last night at the ice rink so watch this space!!!

For those of you in Australia I was visiting my local stamping store yesterday with my good friend Deb. The store is HeavenScent Crafts, and the owner Debbie (who is lovely, but then all Debbie's are!!!) - has just received an order of stamps in from Stamping Bella - including some of the Ketto stamps. She can't show them on her website but you can mail order them through her so just send her an email. I also got the tiny stick on rhinestones there that I've used on the crown and belt. We had a lot of laughs yesterday with 3 Debbies in the one room!!!

Definitely need the sunnies on for this one, but it adds to the element of uniqueness!! The wee dancing diva is gorgeous.

What a pretty card. I love how clean it looks. just perfect. That image is adorable. I haven't seen these. I too would like to take the plunge on the markers but am having trouble with which ones to start with it seems you need a range of 3 shades per color.

(WOW, just noticed you have 67 followers. No wonder you got to 15555 so fast.) This is one very green card, but the stamp is beautiful. That's a girl with panache!! Do I detect a little bit of cuttlebugging in there too?

oooohhhh you got a Ketto!!! And some Copics!!! Don't you LOVE them? They really are so easy to work with once you get the hang of them. For lots of great instruction on how to use them, go to ilikemarkers.blogspot.com. It will look overwhelming, but go to the sidebar and find the topics you want to start with.

Your card is bright, but wonderful! I'm holding back on Kettos. If I get hooked on one more stamp line, I'll tip over! LOL

Lots of love,
Lisa
