Hello again,

I love this sweet little lady. She is cute, cute, CUTE. I was totally in the mood with some distressing. So, I used the Basic Grey urban prairie paper, colored the image with Copics, then distressed with TH distressing ink pad in tea dye and antique linen to give it the look.

Want her? She is available as Sunny Day set or as a single Sunny Day girl.

Stay tune at the CCM's blog, it's Thursday... that's means a NEW sketch challenge. :)

A beautiful bride Michula!

Morning, what happened? The weekend just flew by... Oh well, I hope you had a great weekend. As for me, I had a marvelous weekend! I got my blue belt with a green stripe in Karate on Saturday and I hang out with the Amuse ladies at Ink About it, Westford, MA yesterday. So much fun!

Anyways, enough of me blah, blah, BLAH... Softpencil is having a sketch challenge over at PCP! I love sketch challenges and here is my entry. Michu and Michula wedding is one of my favorite image (to be honest, I love them all!). At first, I wanted to both Michu and Michula... but the oval wasn't big enough... so I thought of just using Michula as a beautiful bride, Elizabeth, I hope you don't mind.

Goodies that I used:
Bazzill bling cs, Elsie Roxie Bands dp, Amuse shimmer paper, deckled edge classic ovals lg, Stampin' Up heart trio punch, a gorgeous ribbon that I brought from my LSS store (I think it's Maya Road... but not sure sorry!), versamagic in sea breeze, copic markers (C00, C01, C03, RV17, V05), stardust pen, and lots of glitter!!!

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

A sweet little gift for MOM!

Hello everyone, hope everyone is having a great weekend.

I was at Michael's a few days ago shopping away... you know how it's, LOL! Then, I saw this $1 wooden frame. I figured it would be cool to decorate it or something...

So, here I'm!

I used a pretty design paper that I brought it a long time ago (I'm sorry, I forgot where it is from), then I traced the frame with a pencil. I cut and adhered it to the frame (I used glue stick for this), then sand the edges (outer and inner frame) with the emery board... so that it looks clean and crisp! :) I also distressed each edges with Tim Holtz distressing ink pad in Tea dye.

For the flowers, I used white Prima flowers, but I sprayed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Old Lace and Creme of Chocolat, and I also added a hint of blue to accent the blue with the design paper. To do that, I used the pom pom and VersaMagic Sea Breeze ink pad. And I also did the same with the corduroy button brad.

Time for some blingssss...

And I colored the image with Copic Markers
skin - E000, E00, R20
hair - E25, E55, E57
dress - BG0000, B91, B93, B95
flowers and heart - R29, R37

Viola! A simple and sweet project. Hope you like it!

Yay! It's Friday...

Oh boy... talking about OUT OF THE BOX! This was a tough challenge! I made this ATC for the Sweet Pea Stamps April Customer Card Challenge. We have to create an ATC using purple and Pink which included an ODD embellishment. I can't think of any odd embellishment. So, I used aluminum foil , I inked it with Tim Holtz alcohol ink, and I created flowers with my marvy flower punches. LOL! I hope this counts.
