My First Sweet Art Ebony

I recently purchased 2 of the Sweet Art Ebony stamps - I LOVE their images! I can't wait to use more. This image was super fun to color; I worked really hard on my shading - how do you think I did?

I think I did the shading on the 'wrong' side - LOL; but I still think it turned out pretty good. I colored the image using Copics - I'm learning so much from Marianne's blog about the use of Copics. Some stuff I will probably never use; but the overall information is incredible!!

Here's a close-up of the little girl - doesn't she remind you of Precious Moments?

I made this for a dear friend that's been having a rough time lately. The inside is stamped with one of the sentiments from Lisa Johnson's "Flower Garden Sentiments" set: "Where flowers bloom so does hope. ~Lady Bird Johnson".

OK, this is going to drive me bonkers, but this close-up image is actually flipped the other direction in my software, but when I load it here, it changes it - what's up with THAT??? URGH!

Anyway, the base card is SU Apricot Appeal, layered with PTI's White, layered with SU Apricot Appeal prints with polka dots. The large scalloped oval is cut with nestabilities as is the white panel; the image is stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black ink and the entire image is colored with Copics. I made her belt a metallic silver - kinda cute I thought. (don't forget, you can click on any picture to see a larger image).

And last is a little locker tag I made for our oldest - she started middle school last week. And you always thought buying school supplies was fun? Oh no - fun is decorating your locker!

This image is "Glam Girls" from All that Scraps, I just love these girls! Have you noticed, I love a lot tonight? LOL

The ribbon looks kind of red; but it's actually bright pink with white polka dots. Her shirt and the ribbon in her hair is colored with Spica Glitter Pens so they really sparkle just like her cool shades!

okay sista...share with me on what copics you have. I have been drooling over these markers and I thought I might try some but I wondered what colors you purchased first? Your shading is just beautiful!
