Hola chicas,

Happy Saturday to you! Here is one of the new stamps that I purchased from the Bugaboo Stamps. I love sock monkeys!!! I don't why, but I just LOVE them. And a while back, I even brought sock monkey design paper from Daisy D's. OMG! I'm crazy, LOL! But now I have the perfect excuse to use this paper.

I used the layout from Card Pattern sketch 65! I colored the image with Copics (BG000, E25, E29, E40, R29, R39), and also added some button brads. Hope you like it!

Here is the order for the blog hop:

And here is my project, I have this new wooden box hanging around for a while now but never knew what to do it. So, what better than to decorate it! I covered the box with cardstock and dp from Recollection. And I used Richard, which I colored with my Copics (B21, B26, E000, E00, E31, E33, E34, E55, E57, E59, V99, Y21). The brown dew drops were actually white but I airbrushed them with Copics E59.

Talk to the hand! :)

Wednesday... it's totally a perfect day to TALK TO THE HAND! Smiley from millan.netLOL! I have been dying to get some of these cute images from Bugaboo Stamps, especially the monsters and the sock monkeys. And I finally did it! And I even tried out the Catch the Bug Challenge.

I was in the mood of something kinda of SPOOKY, so I used orange cs from SEI, dp is from Basic Grey Eerie. I distressed the edges of the image with TH distressing ink pad in shabby shutters. I also used SU border punch, blings (red but colored with black Copic) and wasbi paper tape (purple but colored with black Copic), and I colored the image with Copic markers (N0, N2, N4, N6, 110).

Thanks for stopping by.

ISS Color Challenge!

Happy Weekend! It's time for another fun InStyle Stamps Color Challenge. For this month, we are inspired by this photo. So pretty, I love the all the pieces... the beautiful decoration, the pictures, the totally awesome vase with orange flowers, etc...

Here is my card, I used one of the new image from the "A Day in the Life" collection, this is called BFF lunch. Let me tell you... I love, love, LOVE these A Day in the Life images! They are soooo fun to color. And here are the colors that I used.

If you are wondering... yes, I mostly have original Copic markers, I started out using the original ones, so I just kept buying the same ones. (So, you might ask... how come I have Sketch colors? I brought the refills and fill it up with an original, talking crazy, huh! It's my OCD kicking it, LOL!) However, I do have a few Sketch markers.

Please do visit the ISS blog, check out all the other wonderful DT creations and join the color challenge fun.

Happy Creating!
