So last night Mr Brown delivered some new supplies to my house and now I can let you in on my little secret: This past year I've been coloring with just 14 SU colors. Fourteen!? I guessing most of you have more than that! They have served me VERY well, but with all the overtime I did, I decided it was time to add some new colors (and new life) to my overused stash. I now have 19 new colors to choose from!! Yippeee!
I bought reinkers instead of the stamp pads this time because 99.9% of the time I watercolor an image and very rarely stamp in an actual color other than black or brown, so reinkers made more sense. It's going to be so exciting to work with some fresh colors again! This makes me VERY happy! :D
How fabulous is this stamp?!? I was having a slow moment when I first saw it on Victoria Case's website because I held off buying it. But I must have been reading a really good part of the Twilight series of books because a light bulb went on and I had a 'Duh!!' moment! They look just like Bella and Edward!!! Don't they?!
Did ya notice Edward's eye color? hehe I couldn't resist! I could have probably darkened Bella's hair a bit but then it might have been too dark to notice the detail in her hair. Doesn't Victoria have MAD SKILLS?! I love her characters.
The layout uses this week's Mojo Sketch Challenge, MOJO73, and the color combo is from this week's CCEE challenge, which is to use pink, kraft and white! I used my favorite embellishment on this card, ribbon, and that fit the requirements of the OCC's inspiration challenge for this week too! Three challenges in one! A very rare trifecta for me indeed!! I think that deserves a celebratory glass of wine when I get home tonight. haha
Tomorrow I have a smoldering giraffe for you. Trust me.... :D
