New Beginnings!

Well its a new school year here and a new adventure for me as well this year. This is my first official post as a member of The Tiddly Inks Design Team!! Yipeeeee! First off thank you to everyone who has supported me up to this point and the Christy for selecting me for the team, and welcome to all the new visitors to my blog! I hope you all follow along on this fun adventure with me . Remember you can also find me on Facebook  by clicking on the Facebook symbol to your right or HERE . If you are a Facebook fan I am always around on the Tiddly Inks Group page checking out your amazing work.  Make sure you share your creations you inspire us as much as we are here to inspire you!.  And keep checking here and on the Facebook page for  Giveaways .. tutorials.. Contests whatever my mood desires. 

 This time the challenge that was given was a color scheme! Its stunning and warm and reminds me of summer (which is slipping away far to quickly here) but its not a color palette I am used to using. But we all have to try new things right???..or is that just  what I say to get my kids   to get them to try something... hmm. Well it worked! It gave me a chance to search through my hoard of  supplies and try something new.  

So here she is darling little Emma from the Celebrate Joyfully set which is available in both Digtial and Clear versions.  She is printed off in 3.5 by 5 inch format on Cryogen White Iridescent Metallic Card stock using my Kodak printer.  She is colored with Copic Sketch Markers , and I tried something new...freckles...Love them but they scare me putting that dark of a color on the face you don't want to screw up right.  :)

The card is 5 by 7 format with the base and solid color layer made with Tim Holtz Distress Card stock. The patterned papers are all from the Echo Park Mini Kit Bundle of Joy (Girl). The background layer was run through my Silhouette Cameo with design  " Circle pattern overlay" which I cut at 6.75 by 4.75 inches to fit the card.  The embellishment are random buttons from my button box, I am Roses flowers (which I hand dyed using various ink sprays) , lace medallions from Prima Marketing, and jewels and brads from my random stuff box. The sentiment came from one of my project life card I just cut out the sentiment I wanted.  

Here are come close up veiws of the card. As always I love to hear from you so if you have questions or comments please share them!!!!  Come back tomorrow for detail on the inside of the card!!!
