Sweet Pea Stamps-Featured Artist-Elaine Cox

Hello everyone

I am popping in today for my inspirational post for Sweet Pea Stamps. Today I decided to use one of Elaine Cox's Images called Katie.

I am so into the fall colors right now and that was what I had in my mind when I colored this one up. All of it is colored with my Copics though I used so many I did not get to write it all down.  The paper is from my stash and a mixture of different companies.
Be sure to stop by and see all the lovely images by Elaine available in both rubber and digi.

Zuri Artsy Crafty Blog

Here I am again today with my first Inspirational post for these adorable images by Zuri Artsy Crafty blog.

Today I am showcasing this adorable image by Zuri called, Bubbles. Is this one so darling? Love the innocence of this image and thought it would look best with some softer colors.
I colored the image with my Copics as usual. I handmade the flower by rolling some lace I had in my collection and adding a pearl center.  The sentiment is actually from my collection.
Hope you all enjoyed this Inspirational Post and look forward to all the other fabulous pieces from the other Designers coming soon.

Variation Week-Sweet Pea Stamps

Hello everyone. This is Variation week and this week we were all showcase one of the images by Charity Dunhauer called Wild Heart.

Of course with the Fall...Halloween and Gothic theme items always seem to come to my mind. This image just struck me as a great image to try to give that old world look too.
The paper is from my old Halloween set I have from the local craft store called Jeepers Creepers. I colored the image with my Copics and used only a few colors to get a Sepia type of look and then inked the edges of it with ink. I created the frame with my Cricut (Happy Hauntings Cart) and then added some black tulle and pearls on the edges.

Sweet Pea Designs-Rebecca Sinz

Hello Everyone,

I have been seeing this technique online of the shaker boxes so I decided I would give it a try.  I used one of the gorgeous images available by Rebecca Sinz called, Aconitum.

The paper is an assortment from my stash of MME papers that I pieces together. The image is colored with my Copics and I used a plastic overlay from one of the plastic covers on my daughter's doll cases. It is my first attempt but definitely can see using this again for some Christmas card images soon.
