Inky Impressions 1st Design Team Call

How is your Monday going girls? Ours has been really great so far! Hubby was out of town over the weekend and I had to work Saturday night so my little man spent the night at my Mom's house. It was nice to just have QUIET here on Sunday. But as much as I enjoyed it, picking up the little guy was the BRIGHT spot in my day, know what I mean?

Inky Impressions is a new stamp company and she has a design team call going on. I saw the link on Tenia's blog and had to go see what kind of images she has. And OH are they ever adorable! Big, BIG eyes and sweet faces! After reading the blog and seeing the sweet Lili and Angelica images, I decided that I definitely wanted to apply as well! Here are the 2 cards I'm posting for Round 1!
Remember this one? It's still my most favorite card ever!! There are others that are right there, nipping at her heels, but she's still number one! She was colored with my Prismacolor pencils and a blender pencil.
And a close-up of the shading and the fabric swatches with the designer's notes on fabric choices.
And for the second example I am also re-posting this one as I love her too! My favorite little bit is still the fun flock on the dandelion! I watercolored Kirsten on this card.

Here's a close-up shot so you can really see the shimmer of her wings and the fluff of the dandelion.



Well, that is it for today. Head over to Inky Impressions - you can find the details on the Design Team call HERE and see the examples of Lili and Angelica HERE (scroll all the way to the bottom).
I want to go get some stamping done during naptime today so I better scurry! Thanks so much for always coming by to visit! I just noticed today that my hits were over 11,000! I treasure each of you and hope that you are blessed each day by your visit!
Have a beautiful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow for Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday!
