It's April!

April is HERE!!! Why am I so excited about April? Well, I am joining the amazingly talented ladies over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design as a Guest Designer for the month! I will be featuring the Anki's Sweethearts line, as well as a sampling from some of the other great stamp designs that Susana carries, three times a week for all of April. Woo hoo! To kick it off right here on April 1st, I have this card, featuring Alicia the Fairy. Isn't she DARLING?

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored her with Copic markers, adding a few highlights with the white gel pen. I added a touch of Shimmerz to her wings, although you will probably have to take my word for it since my stamping cave doesn't have the best sparkle-catching light for photos. The colors are Certainly Celery, Regal Rose and White. The patterned paper is all from Die Cuts with a View.

Susana has some really great bundles for Copics, put together by coloring goddess Suzanne Dean {we're not worthy!}. She also carrys the Memento ink pads, which is the only thing to use with Copics and as we all know can be really hard to find. She has the BROWN too. I have been looking for that one for weeks so I know what I'm doing later! Oh, and did I mention that the brand new Nestabilities and Impressabilities are in stock now? No foolin'!!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope it's a good one for you!
