Here and Forever

Hi everyone! This is my first post as a Design Team Member for Sweet Pea Stamps (SPS). I am now among some of the best artists and designers for Sweet Pea. Thanks to you all for this wonderful opportunity.

For my first post I wanted to use a digi from ching chou kuik’s fantasy line. I think that I have most of her digis, so I have a lot of coloring to do! The one I chose is fairly recent and titled “Here and Forever.” If you are an avid rubber stamper, you can also purchase this stamp from SPS, Plate #247.

I colored her with my Copics and then added distress ink after I cut her out. Everything else is from my stash. My swirls were die cut and then distress ink added to make them pop a little better.

Copics used:
Hair: E50, E33, E25
Skin: E000, E11, R20
Flowers: YR02, YR15, YR18, E15, B21, B24, B26, B28
Eyes, leaves, snail: G20, YG63, YG67
Background: W0, W1, W2, W3, B21, blender

We have a new challenge at One Sweet Challenge posted for June. We want your little piece of art to include buttons and ribbons. You can use any stamp (rubber or digi) that you want, but for the big prize you must use an SPS image.

Thanks for stopping by. See you next week!
