More new-ness...

I love buying new stamps. I am surprised at how many I've collected in the less than one year that I've been stamping.

But, ooooh weee...this image is just so gorgeous...even without coloring it, it is just stunning and could be used alone (I think) without coloring. But, I did color it because I love my Copic markers. LOL

So, I went to my LSS the other day and I found this lovely paper from Making Memories (Fa La La) and I usually don't buy the whole line especially when it is 12x12 sheets because I get bored with the paper before it is used up and by the time I go to use it again, it is out of vogue. ANYway....I ended up buying the brad combo pack and the glittery letters for this line. I didn't buy it all....but I might have been tempted if only I'd had a partner in crime there to enable me. LOL

What I used: Willow stamp from Whiff of Joy, SU CS, SU Shimmery White CS, Making Memories Fa La La PP, Basic Grey PP (the green distressed paper on the matting), Adirondack Pitch Black, Copic markers, Shimmerz Paints in Celery, Angel Wings and Burgundy, GORGEOUS red felt ribbon with green stitching, Prima flower, Making Memories glittered brad.

Thanks for stopping in today!

What a beautiful card! Love that image!

BTW, thanks for the tip using Copics with something other than SU white or vanilla c/s. I switched to PTI cream and it made a big difference on the whole blending thing.

And if you ever need an enabler, I'll send my Beloved Reader #2 out your way. She can smell a stamp store within 10 miles!
