Ciao Bella

I must start off by saying I love this stamp-:O)

Then I have to rant a bit....I went out last night and bought 7 more match with the new line of Imaginisce paper...."Fairest Of Them All"
when I got home and started coloring with my copics I couldn't get any of the colors to match with the paper!!! What is up with that? I have 23 copics, and I can barely get any of them to match with any paper I own-and I own a lot of paper!!!

Anyways, after several attempts to color in with my copics, I decided to use my water color pencils.
Here are the details for today's card:
Stamp: Whiff of Joy
Sentiment Stamp: MFT
Techniques: machine stitching/water color 
Ribbon and brads: CTMH
Cardstock: CTMH Sweet Leaf
Patterned Paper: Imaginisce "Fairest Of Them All"
Dragon Fly Charms: My LSS

I also used my nifty nesties. 
Dot technique inspired by Cindy Haffner 

I forgot to tell you..I won Kelly's blog candy the other day! Yeah! I love winning blog candy. :O)
Thanks Kelly!

High Hopes Challenge #2

Okay so I pulled out my copics again-wow I do just love my copics! The only problem is that I don't have enough of them-and the colors I do have don't really match with any paper that I have. 
So I decided to try and make my own paper-and it worked out great! 
I randomly stamped and then colored in with my copics to make my patterned paper; and then used the same colors to color in Tilda! :o)
And then when I completed the card I realized it had blue/green/brown and a neutral-thus qualifying for HHC2-Yippee!
Here are the details:
Stamp: Magnolia/CTMH Friendship Blessings
Sentiment: MFT
Paper: Randomly Stamped Flowers from Friendship Blessing
CS: CTMH Chocolate/Buttercup-embossed with cuttlebug swiss dots
Ribbon and Brads: CTMH
Flowers: Prima and Bazzil
Copics: E00/E11/R20/YG03/YG63/Y21/B45/B32/R02/E35/E37/E29

OOPS! I just realized I didn't use High Hopes stamps for the high hopes stamp challenge.....sorry about that; 
how about I include another link to your site.... 
Check out High Hopes-they do have the cutest stamps out there!
