Let the games begin!

If you don't know yet, Stamping Bella is having a release on Friday...I haven't seen everything, but what I have seen is gonna ROCK YOUR WORLD!

I'll have three new images to show you this week, but keeping with the challenge over on the Bloggabella, I'm gonna save the best for last! Remember it's an 'open' challenge, just send your bestest work to Emily by Thursday.


Meet Izzie has a letter...I think it's a love letter and she is saying 'miss Linda, I love you too!'...LOL! Seriously, I do luv her and just want to snuggle her, but it is a card and I wouldn't want to crumple it.

AND..bonus...for all you copic fans out there...the sun was shining down on me yesterday and I had nothing on my to do list except to color so I took the time to track down the colors I used in this card...just in case you wanted to order a few when you add izzie to your cart ;)

E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
E40, 41, 43, 04, 07
YG0000, G20, 40, 12
BG10, 11, 32, 34, 72, 75
T0, 1, 2, 3 (to shade the BG's)
W00, 0, 1 (the letter)
E30, 31, 35 (hair)

Now I did add just a small bit of pencils to shade to the dress, but not a lot, just a tiny bit. And I also used a brown pencil to color over the black polka dots just to tone down the harsh black. Finally, in case you are wondering, the patterned paper is Memory Box.

On another topic, I'll answer some recent questions:

1) For Renee, nesties for newbies. I would probably recommend the large set of circles or ovals...you can always cut a square or rectangle without having to use a die but it is pretty tough to cut an oval :)

2) Copic tutorials for Frannie. Run, don't walk to the copic creations blog. They have bi-monthly challenges which are listed on the sidebar so just go to the one you are interested in and they provide links to FANTASTIC tutorials related to that technique. It is one of my fav places to hang out.

3) Pencil or watercolor pencil tutorials for Jocelan. I can't help with watercolor pencils, but for prisma and gamsol check out this grass tutorial that Paula put together and for a basic pencil/gamsol tutorial check out this one that Paula often recommends.

Whew! That's it for today...off to get inky again...be sure to keep checking on all the Babe's too cause I'm pretty sure they'll be sneaking some new stuff in as well!
