Distress with Copics

Last night I wanted to try something new. I had seen awhile back Suzanne Dean's video on Distress Look with Copics. I knew that with my limited Copics I would be just flidding and it not really amount to anything but I was pleasantly surprised at how it came out.

Suzanne uses the following:
Skin: E00,E11,E13,W3 I substituted with E00,E33, E21, W5
Hair: E27,E25,E41,E31 I substituted with E29, E37, E33, E43
Clothes and Socks: R000,R00, R2o I actually had R00 and R20

Her little Tilda didn't have a basket, flowers or shoes so I was on my own on those. The basket was the same color as the hair.
Flowers : BV00, BV08
Shoes: C3,C5

I love this Tilda with Lilacs. I have a best friend that just recently found out she's pregnant. I'm so excited for her, she is an amazing person and will be just as amazing as a Mom. I don't really have any maternity stamps but these sweet Tilda's just remind me of little dolls (I'm putting my vote in for a girl) I hope she likes it!

Wild Orchids arrived!

YEAH! My first Wild Orchids Crafts order arrived today. I wasn't sure where to start or what sizes to order so I went with an array of sizes from 8mm to 25mm. What do I make of what I ordered? I did pretty good. 25mm are the perfect size. It measures about the size of a U.S. nickel (it's the two-tone flower on my card). The 10mm rose (on the bow and inside) are a great petite size as well as the 15mm. They are perfect to layer on other flowers.

Another first on my card....I colored with Distress Inks! I LOVE IT!!! I want to thank all of you who color with distress inks and list the colors. You were a great inspiration as well as your beautiful work! I have a couple more images that I played with over the weekend. I'm on the search for the perfect paper!

I would love to hear what you think of my first time with Distress inks. Here are some details and some challenges.

Skin: Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Dress: Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar
Hair: Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo

Just Magnolia: Sketch
Papertake Weekly: Do Something Different
