Shimmer - TSS DT Post

Sunday, March 04, 2012

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share with you a little inspiration post for the March Spots Challenge over at The Stamp Spot! The challenge this month is to include a spot of green, twine, and brads. There are lots of goodies up for grabs this month so check out the challenge here.

For my card I have used the brand new Shimmer stamp from The Greeting Farm. How cute is she? She was so much fun to colour up! You can grab her and check out the other new Greeting Farm stamps over here.

The papers are from Basic Grey, and I have used a doily, flowers, and some ribbon from my stash. I have also used some gorgeous Caribbean Twine by the Twinery and some bronze brads to fit the theme. I distressed all of my papers by crumpling the edges and using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo.

I coloured Shimmer using my copic markers. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E53, E00, E11
Hair: E31, E35, E37
Clothes: V04, V06, RV04
Flower: G000, G00

Can't wait to see all of your beautiful creations in the challenge! :D

**NOTE - I am having trouble visiting some blogger sites lately so haven't been able to leave any comments! Is anyone else having these troubles? I can see the sites in Reader but when I go to open them they just won't load! So sorry if I haven't left any comments but I am trying to get to your sites! :D **
Thanks for stopping by!

I am also entering this over at the Linky Party at Make it Monday :)
