International Lost Inker........

Welcome!
Apologies are in order...... I cannot find this month's kit hosted by Imke.
I looked under all my piles of papers and stacks of books. Looked through my scraps of card stocks and such. I could not find her kit anywhere.

It's here... hiding somewhere.
My excuse is that we have been extremely busy, and the house right now is in total dissarray.

BUT! I DO have something for you today... that's something, right?

I have the kit that I was unable to post a couple of rounds ago...... and here it is!!






I colored the image with Copics.. a skill I still haven't mastered, but I think i'm getting better.... I have considered giving up on them altogether, simply due to thier cost! But i still have them.... it's hard to let things go eh?



I made a 5x5 square card on a white base. Two things I have been obsessed with of late... larger than A2 sizes, and white bases. I get a great price on a pack of 100lb white stock that is great for card bases and so the penny pincher in me has gravitated to it everytime. It also saves me from putting a layer of white on the inside for writing too.....

A few of the lovely embellishments from the kit, buttons, ribbon, dew drops and felt flowers... VOILA!









I really enjoyed this kit.. it was easy to put together and quick to color... just don't mind her socks..... I realized they were probably socks after I had already colored them in as skin... oopsie?! LOL





Now hop on over to the rest of the girls' blogs and have a gander at this month's ACTUAL kit!!

Hi Karen, i hope you find my kit someday ;-)

What you´ve done with Tanja´s Kit is lovely. I like your coloring and your layout. Fabulous !

LOL! BTDT, Kare. Very clever of you to sub another kit. I still need to do the kit I made! eesh!

I love the paper you chose to feature. Combined with the image, it gives the card a very storybook/daydream quality. Cute!

(((hugs)))
