Sassy Cheryl’s Challenge

Sassy Cheryl's  challenge this week is a sketch.  I’m using the “Ladybug” digital stamp by Sassy Cheryl’s.


The image is colored with Copics, and then layered on the oval and scalloped dies by Spellbinders.  The flowers and butterfly are made with punches by Martha Stewart. 

I had a ball with this image.  I actually had to color the image three times.  The first time I printed it on a new cardstock I thought I would give a try, but it ended up causing the copics to bleed.  So I went back to the cardstock I use all the time, but that ended up being just plain white cardstock, so the copics wouldn’t blend….. what a nightmare!!!  Finally, I used a new sheet of my Xpress Copic paper, and voila image colored with no problems.  Lesson to myself, stick with what you know works, and keep cardstock always separated!

Hope you are having a good week! Thanks for stopping by.
