Awww, Thanks! - Tiddly Inks Challenge

 Hi ya everyone!
  Don't ya just love simplifying life?  I like to make things simple so I can concentrate on family time and crafting - so when Christy asked us to simplify this week on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and make a single layered card - I thought hmmmm...interesting and difficult!!!!!  How am I going to use all my gorgeous design papers????  Well I figured I'd start in PowerPoint and Create my whole card.
 I made borders and placed this cutey called Awww Thanks right in the middle!  I computer generated the sentiment as well and printed it all out on my laser printer.  I colored her first and then colored in portions of the border.
 I stamped the bit of scrolling above her and colored that as well.  Last but not least I went around with my gel pen and added little dots to her clothes and portions of the purple border and I was done!!!  I let my Copics do most of the work and I like the way it turned out.
 Christy has a great demonstration of printing out some cards from Tiddly Inks too - so make sure to check that out!   
Head over to the Tiddly Inks store and stock up on a few Tiddly's then head over to the challenge blog and give our one layer card a try!!!
Care about my Copics???

  6. So kewl. At first glance I thought you used digital DP, but you are too clever for that, you coloured DP and made it look like layers. Too smart. Love the outcome, and how you made her adorable little shirt look translucent.
