Such a Pretty Little Stamp.....

Flutterby Annabelle
          I absolutely love this stamp. In fact, I love all of the stamps from Tiddly Inks. They are always so creative and easy to colour. I coloured this lovely little Annabelle for my cousin's birthday card. After posting this pic I realized that she looks like she has a bad case of dandruff but I swear she does not. You will notice that in the finished card picture.I have been trying extremely hard to get all my birthday cards completed a head of time. So far, I have completed everything up to the middle of April. This is also including the cards for my coworkers. I feel like I have accomplished a ton of stuff over the Christmas holiday. I also am going away for 3 weeks the second week of March so I wanted to make sure everything was completed before I went. Here is the finished card..... 

          On this 5.5X5.5 card, as you know I used the Tiddly Inks Flutterby Annabelle digital stamp. I just love the teal and purple colour combinations together.... The teal paper is from Core'dinations, the lavendar paper is Mulberry paper that I use for my TearBears. The patterned paper is "Rhapsody Jubilation" from 3bugsinarug. As you can see from many other cards I have posted that I absolutely love the organic look of Gina K's Kraft paper. This is usually my first choice in colour that I will use for my cardbacks..... I also really like using Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in "Walnut Stain".
          I am a HUGE Copic fan so most of my cards have been done with Copics..... I used E00, E11, R20 for her skin. Her hair was done in E25, E27, E29. The dress, shoes and wings were done with BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02, & BV08. For the remaining parts of the card I used RV63, RV66, B00, B01, B02, YG06, YG25, RV29, Y08, TR07, YR16, E40, E43 and RV23. I added some bling with Diamond Stickles. I also added the little crocheted butterfly (not sure who it is by). Hope you enjoy.....


  1. I am so in agreement with you, I find my Tiddly Images are some of the easiest - and hardest images ever. My card for this challenge gave me nightmares, I colored Druscilla three times before she was just perfect. :D

    I think your choice of colors is gorgeous and bold - I like the bold. Thanks so much Nikki for joining us this challenge at Tiddly Inks, and have fun on your vacation in March!
