Another New Sweet Pea




Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday! :) I hope you are all having a wonderful day and a wonderful week. I have a super quick post for you today as I have to get to work early, there are a ton of things I have to get done today. For my card today, I decided to ink up another gorgeous new image from ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection from Sweet Pea Stamps. This particular image is called Flowing in Blue. I colored the image with copics (dress: V12, V15, V17; skin: E00, E01, E11, RV21; hair: E33, E35, E37; blues: B32, B34, B37). Next, I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Not Quite Navy and Perfect Plum). The design paper is from K&Co. I tend to keep my layouts very simple and often revert to this standard layout when I'm working with these images. I hope I'm not boring you all :) I just like keeping these beautiful images as the focal point of the card. For some finishing touches, I added lavender pearls, Primas, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

I have this image colored!! I colored it Sunday night as I was watching all the flooding news on TV. Hopefully I will ahve time to create a card with it tonight. I have 3 other projects I have to do first!!! I just love this image!! And you have colored her just beautiful!! Oh and I am loving my Wild Orchird Flowers I ordered!! Thanks for listing on your blog where you get yours!!! I will be ordering more from them, they are just gorgeous. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers!! I am safe and away from the floods, but so many people have lost everything and my heart just goes out to all of them!! I am going to try to get alot of clothes together to take to one of the shelters. With me also having 3 children, I am sure I'll be able to get alot of clothes together for children!! And thank you for checking and thinking of me.
