Tiddly Inks Gratitude & Joyfulness Challenge

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, Tiddly Inks has a Gratitude & Joyfulness Challenge! I'm thankful for a lot of things, and one of them is my daughter. She is such a sweetheart. The Tiddly Inks Girl's Best Friend image is one of my favs because it looks so much like her and the dog even looks like my Silky Terrier, so choosing it for this challenge was a no-brainer. =)

I printed the image onto X-Press Blending Card, then colored it with Copics. I added a tiny dot of white to her eye and some black Wink of Stella to the dog's nose. I created the sentiment in Word, printed it in reverse onto a transparency, then rubbed it onto the pink cs. I went over the letters with a Black Spica pen, then gave them a slight shadow with a gold Spica. With a Copic multiliner, I drew wonky lines around the sentiment, and finally added dots of black Stickles to the corners. 
The inside sentiment was also created in Word and rubbed onto the cs. More squiggly lines finished the card off nicely. I hope you'll join us in this fun challenge, and be sure to check out the rest of the DT for plenty of amazing cards for inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week, and if you are in the U.S., Happy Thanksgiving!
