Finally!!!



I finally took the plunge and inked up my Sweet Pea stamps that I have had for a while now and colored one in.  As many of you know from past posts I have admired the work of Randi (The Dark Mermaid) for quite some time now. She is one of the most talented people I have met on my blog traveling and she has turned me on to this wonderful line of stamps.  I will not bore you with a long story but I have had them now for a while and every day just look at them and they look right back at me with there intimidating eyes! Well today I overcame my fear and jumped in the water so you might say!!!!




The stamp I used is called Time Flies.  Since she has butterfly wings I also colored up a couple of friends for her too.  They are from Hero Arts.  The tree branch and flowers were cut on my cricut with the cartridge Home Accents. I wanted to give this card depth so it has quite a few layers. The background was done with chalks. This card reminds me so of the begining of spring when the flowers start to bloom and the buterflies are out fluttering around. I hope it brings you the same feeling!


I colored with copics: I am going to try to start listing the colors I used for you!
Skin: E00, E02, W1
Hair: 100, C3, C5, C7
The rest of her and the butterflies: R27,R22, R29, Y15, YR07, YR04, RV19, B28, G07, YG03, B00, YG09 & B12
Stickles: Yellow, Eucalyptus, Frosted Lace
Liquid Pearls - White Opal

  32. Kym this is so beautiful!! YOur colors look so much like the colors I chose(for this image) for this stamp release!! Well I know what you mean being afraid of these stamps!! I was so afraid I would be able to make her artwork shine through my coloring!! And after I colored the first one I wasn't afraid anymore!! I own everyone one of these Sweet Pea Ching Chou Kuiks images!! And as soon as more come out I'll get those too!! As these are my favorite stamps!! They are very, very addictive!! Awesome creation Kym!!!
