Well hello there!

Howdy ho there stamping friends! Hope your week was wonderful! Mine FLEW by and I honestly can't believe I am typing this prepping for a Friday. What? Huh? Really? The good news is, even though this week went by at lightning speed, I did get some crafty time in my stamp room which always makes my heart smile!

On to my creation!

For this card, I simply picked an image that I had really wanted to color up -- Power Poppy's buttercup image from Marcella's Mixtape Vol. 1 --- and then I went searching on my Get Sketchy Pinterest Board for a sketch to try! I ended up choosing this one HERE! With that done, the rest is really just stamping my image, coloring, and matting! I used Memento Espresso Truffle and then colored up my image with Copic Markers using YG21, YG000, YG25, Y21, Y35, BG0000, C01, and C00. I used a mix of Echo Park and BasicGrey papers, added some paper piercing, a bit of ribbon and, of course, some glitter glue! Just that simple! The sentiment is from the Good Thinking: Renewal set and was stamped using Memento Teal Zeal!

Here's a close up!

And that, my friends, is it!

I really love this image and you've colored it up so cute! It really benefits from stamping with the lighter ink. I've got a thing for both yellow and sanding, so love that, too. Great sketch. Geez, I've got a sketch board, too, but only two pins on it. I need to make more effort, I think.
