Thinking of You...

Hi ya everyone!
Today, I'm sharing a little card I made using the adorable rubber stamp from Whimsy stamps.  This stamp is a Wee stamp design by Sylvia Zeit and I LOVE all of them.  This sweetie is called Hopeful and can be found in the MarkerPop store.
I chose papers from Glitz Designs called Cashmere Dame and paired it with Bazzill card stock Patina.  The small enamel dots are from My Mind's Eye.  The Thinking of You sentiment is from My Craft Spot.  The cream crinkle ribbon is from an Etsy shop called Prairie Bird Boutique.  I also used a Paper Pen for the little pearls all over.  Hopeful was colored in Copics.  I tried something new and colored her skin in YR000, YR00, E11 and E04.  That's the challenge at MarkerPop this week!  Color skin out of your comfort zone.  Tomorrow, I'll share a Copic tutorial on coloring dark skin!  Hope you'll join me.


  1. Ooh, I love how you got the glow from the candle hitting her pants. I posted her a few weeks ago on my blog, wish I'd thought to do that.

  2. WOW this is so beautiful the image is beautifully coloured and the layout is gorgeous. Caroline xxx
