Tiddly Inks Poppy Color Challenge #140

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Hi there, blog friends! Hope you had a great weekend (and a long one for my U.S. friends!). I haven't been blogging too much in the past couple of months, but starting today, I plan to post more regularly. And, for a very good reason...I am now a member of the Tiddly Inks Design Team, and this is my first official Tiddly Inks DT post!!! YAY! Thank you, Christy, for inviting me to join the team, and to the entire team, including the departing members, for the warm and friendly welcome! 

It wasn't hard to choose an image to use for my first Tiddly Inks post. The email invitation I received to join the DT was definitely Happy Mail for me! And the colors in this week's Poppy Color Challenge are happy, as well!
One of the things I love about digital stamps is how easy it is to create a scene with layering--no masking necessary! Wryn, the mailbox, the bird, and the sentiment are all separate images when you get them. I printed the digi's on X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with Copics. I couldn't resist giving Wryn a few freckles to go with her red hair. ;)
Here's a look at the inside. It seems to have a little bit of a pink tint all over, that I just couldn't get out without losing the other colors. Reds and pinks are so hard to photograph!

I hope you'll join us in the Tiddly Inks Poppy Color Challenge, and be sure to visit the rest of the DT to see their beautiful creations, too!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!
