Count Your Rainbows - Tiddly Inks Challenge

Hi ya everyone!
DON'T FORGET TO TRY FOR A CHANCE AT MY $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE GIVEAWAY TO MY SHERI CRAFTS - JUST CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS!!!
  This week at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog we are asking you to join the fun with COLORS!!!  March is a fabulous month as we start to welcome the spring - so what better way to celebrate the month of March than with COLORS!!!  March is COLOR ME month at Tiddly Inks!  The Design Team has cooked up some amazing inspiration for this weeks challenge - Rainbows - use as many colors as possible - so stop by if you get a chance and join the fun!
I used this sweet little Tiddly image called Spring HuggABugg.  She can be found in the Tiddly Inks store HERE.  First, I colored her with my Copics.  I cut her out with my oval nestables and then added colored dots with my Copics.  I used white gel pens and highlighted certain areas.  I inked the edges of the oval with Tim Holtz Black Soot.
 I then used papers from my DCWV stack (the stripes) from the School Stack and also used papers from my Cosmo Criket stack (yellow).  I used black paper to line each element and then stitched each together using black thread on my sewing machine.  I made a few punch flowers with my small flower punch and added some gems for the center.
I added a shiny red ribbon down one side and then used pop dots to pop my Tiddly Image off the page.  I then added this great sentiment from the Inkadinkadoo stamp set - "Count Your rainbows, not Your Thunderstorms"!
 Head over to Tiddly Inks and join the fun this week using lots of color.  Also, don't forget to stop by the store to see the new images and grab a freebie while you're at it!!!
