Stella has landed!


Stella landed right into her martini glass and fell into a field of Basic Gray Sultry flowers!!!!!!!! LOL! MAN...don't you just love when things come together! This is how it was with Stella. Maybe it has something to do with my love of a good fancy martini!...the colours in this card are just cryin' for a celabratory Cosmo, but with that bit of green in there I could also be swayed towards an Appeltini.

Enough of that, on with the card. I may have said before that I really love to just colour. I generally don't start with a paper in mind, just sit and colour away in colours that I think work well together. This one was done with my beloved copics, which I pretty much use exclusively these days. Then after I have a few coloured, I go thru my stash of paper and look for something that matches. WELL......I almost forgot I bought this 6x6 Basic Gray Sultry pad at Pickle and when I was flippin' thru the stash I almost DIED when I came across this one. It could not have been more perfect...not to mention the ribbon! Of course it helps when you have upwards of 150 different ribbons to choose from! LOL!!!!!!!!! And, I can't go without mentioning that Stella and the little bonbons are from Stamping Bella.

Oh, you so are like, my Canadian twin! I love to color and that is mostly what Ido...color and then find some paper to go with it! How funny, glad to know I am not the only one out there who isn't all planned out! This stamp is too cool and so colorful....I LOVE it!!

It's a good thing that martini glass caught her fall! Love the colours Linda and imagine, actually had ribbon to match! LOL! Great use of the Copics! Will you be my Copic mentor when I take the plunge?

Love your card and the colours are just fabulous. When I seen how perfectly everything matched I had to chuckle because I get teased about being a fanatic of MATCH MATCH MATCH!!!!

Your coloring is AWESOME!
The more I hear people RAVE about these copics....I think I'm going to have to break down and get a few.....UGH! But which ones to start with?? Any suggestions??
Back to the card....I actually had to click on it, to enlarge it, because it looked as if you'd cut it out and it was on pot dots or something. But no! Your shading is just awesome!! Teach ME!!! :)
