Someone Needs a Hug

***This is my second post, so if your'e looking for my Stamptacular DT post, it's the previous post***** 

Oh, Friday was a wonderful day! My LOTV winnings from a Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge came in the mail today after a super long wait (okay, the wait was expected, but I'm an instant gratification kinda gal)! I picked out two sweet images and "Never too Old for a Hug" was the first one to get colored up! This was my first time actually using a rubber image! I always use digital, so I found it tricky getting a nice even stamp. I need to look up some tips and tricks, so if anyone can help me out, I'd totally appreciate it!

I used Prima Madeline papers, Wild Orchid Crafts roses (Prima non-roses) and my brand new Spellbinders die (60% off Joann's coupon used at Michaels, woot woot!) The sketch I used is the current challenge for Cute Card Thursday:

Isn't she sweet? I colored her with Copics: E000, 00, 11, R20 (skin); 
E51, 53, 11, 13, 15, 18 (hair); 
R81, 83, 85, YG03, 63,67 (clothes and wings);
 W3, 5 and blender for the rabbit and E51, 53, 57 and colorless blender for the bear

Thanks for looking!

  3. What a beautiful card. Hanks for playing at Cupcake. X

  4. fantastic card, love the image and your colouring & all the details! I usually do my rubber stamping with an 'upside down' computer mouse mat underneath the card - it just provides a bit of 'give' when stamping! But you've done a fab job with this one!

  5. Wow, this is gorgeous and the colouring is fab. To get an even image I always use a thick foam mat. You can buy one on the link here.
    Really gives you an even image.
    Hugs Sharon. x

Love how you've colored this up and your floral spray is GORGEOUS!! Unfortunately Dutch Dare has a limit of 8 challenges that a card can be entered into, so I'm afraid this card won't qualify this time, but I truly hope you'll join us again next time.
