Paper Smooches & Stamp Attic

Hi there

I hope you all enjoyed the 'Operation Julie's Smile' on Sunday!  I popped around to everyone's blogs to comment, there was some serious inspiration to see!

Today I does love me some yummy Paper Smooches stamps so here’s a happy little mini card…
CMC 811-3
My fantastic friend Savvy aka Savannah O’Gwynn just made it onto their DT so I absolutely had to play along.  Way to go Savvy!!!!!  You wait and see what inspiration she brings, you will love it!

I used my Copics to colour my tomato.  I used to find my reds a bit difficult where they would also bleed over the lines, but I learnt a few tips and tricks from my online course that have helped.  I’ve started looking around at objects to help me figure out the placement of lighting, I’m not sure I quite pulled off the ‘roundness’ here but I still like him, he’s too happy not to!  Practice, practice, practice!  If you want to learn to colour but prefer non-virtual and live near San Jose, CA you could sign up for one of Suzanne's classes.  She has a couple of spaces free on October 22nd and 23rd.  Click here for more information.

This is the inspiration pic…
Today I’m also sharing a card over at The Stamp Attic.

Darcie's Birds in Nest
For full details of supplies for this card pop on over to The Stamp Attic blog, supplies for my tomato card are listed below.

Before I go I'd like to say a very big thank you to my friend Laurel Beard who runs Lawnscaping Challenges.  She won a new Scor-Pal and sent me her old one as a gift!  Isn't she lovely!!!!  Thank you Laurel, I will have some fun playing with that, I've wanted one for ages, you're a sweetie. 

Have a great day!
