Are ya listenin'? :D I have some VERY exciting news to share with you!
Anita, from Just a Pigment of my Imagination (a/k/a coloring wizard, card maker extraordinaire, Simply Sassy chick...ya, THAT Anita) chose me to be the NEXT Team Orange Torchbearer for Amber Ink. Oh yeah, late night e-mail messages, code words, secrets - you get the picture!
And let me tell you - Amber of THE AMBER INK - is a hoot; we've only been "together" a couple of weeks, but she's one seriously fun chick. Amber Ink has clear stamps, digitial stamps AND digital paper (something for everyone)! ***squeal***
The other famous torchbearers joining me are:
And I'll be carrying the Orange Torch!
And why stop there eh? Today we are all sharing our first project. I chose Love Bug; what an easy peasy choice this was! We have a love bug in our family! Well, her name is Kaitlyn, but we always call her Kaity-bug Ladybug; hmph, easy choice wouldn't you say?
This digital stamp comes with 2 images - a lady bug with hearts and a lady bug without hearts...AND (since I'm on a roll); I want you to know I FLIPPED the non-heart ladybug to create a mirror image. HOW COOL IS THAT? Come on peeps; put your hands together for the Photoshop challenged Michele - let's hear it!!! LMBO!
I printed my bugs onto GKD white paper (yep, just my regular 'ole printer) and then colored them in with Copics. I used some gingham paper and made like a picnic cloth - can you tell? Did it work? Can you see it? I added a chocolate border and made the corner split just like ladybug wings....did it work? Can you see it? Sheesh; I hope I haven't lost you!
Anyway, little Kaity-bug has a birthday this month, so it's for her! Shhh...do not tell! I added 3 little heart brads in the corner, some chocolate twill ribbon and a pure poppy decorative nestie. I also embossed the top portion of the pink layer with dots. Ahhh....bring on the warmer weather so we can have a picnic!!! I'm so ready!
Be sure to stop by the Amber Inklings blog to catch all the fun!
Now...I'm off to stretch, warm-up and get ready for this crazy torchbearing race! See ya soon!
...orange torches and ladybugs...Hugs, ~M.
