Bella Sketch Challenge and Some Tildas!

Hello everyone! Hope your day is going well! I have a few cards to share with you today that I actually started earlier, but couldn't finish until last night because of how busy I have been at work. I have started to dread Tuesdays!!! Why do so many babies have to be born on Tuesdays??

Anyway, the first card comes from a sketch posted on SCS in the Stamping Bellas forum, it is (Edited to add the link ) BSC69 and here is the picture of the sketch....




And this is what I came up with using this as my starting point....




I love the bold colors of this DP from Junkitz! It is part of a birthday paper collection and it also has some paper with rows of cupcakes and party hats and even some sentiments that would be great to add to a card or a SB layout. I need to use up the leftovers and make some bright and cheery birthday cards!

I am so excited that I have finally found some time to put some ink on a couple of the Magnolias that I have recently purchased. I have to thank my friend Monica for getting me to like these sweet images. At first I thought they would only be useful if you had a little girl that you wanted to send a card to, but now they have grown on me and I want more!!!! They are just so sweet and innocent looking. I love them a lot and have so much fun coloring them!
This is the first card that I ever made using a Magnolia stamp. There is room for improvement in the coloring with my copics, but I keep practicing. I LOVE to color images now that I have my Copics! I want to get some wax based pencils too, and try the OMS or Gamsol technique that Gina K demonstrated on Stamp TV today. My friend Shelley showed me this a long time ago, but I have never had the pencils to try it with. I guess a trip to Michael's is in order, huh? Tiffani (my BFF) just bought some at the recent Stampfest we had and she is enjoying this technique a lot!


Anyway... here is the first Tilda I put some color on using my Copics!

I am afraid it may have come from a sketch, but since I started this one a while back, I can't even remember if the sketch was from a challenge or not! I apologize if I am not giving someone the proper credit! Purple is such a hot color right now! I liked the final image mostly except I wish I had handled the mittens differently. I don't like how they turned out!


The second card using a Tilda image comes from two challenges. The first one is a sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches and the second one is from the SCS Color Challenge from yesterday. The challenge was to use Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip and Pink Passion colors from SU.
Here is the sketch....


And here is my card...



The Fine Print: DP: The Paper Co.; CS: SU; Stamp: Magnolias Sweetheart Tilda, Sentiment: Inky Antics; Border Punch: Martha Stewart; Flowers: Michael's Brides collection, Ribbon flowers: Michael's; Brads, Bazzill; Ink: Amuse, SU.

Well, I have to go for now, I am hoping to do some creating still today before I get called back in to work! One more day on call then I have a three day weekend! I sooooo need that!!

Have a great day and may your bucket overflow with fun stamped images to color!!
