Hello Everyone!!! It's time for another PaperPlay Challenge and I've got a little surprise for you! First, the challenge is to use something that wasn't made for crafting. I chose to work with a doily. Now I know what you're thinking...everyone uses doilies on their paper crafts! But, technically, they weren't made for crafting! This one was actually from under my drink at a restaurant (hehehe)!!! Now, the rest of the DT gals have some really great things to show you too so I hope you'll take a look at their blogs too :-)
Now for the surprise!!!!! As I announced last week, I'm opening my own online craft store, Love To Stamp, and launching a new rubber stamp line, Little Darlings. The Love To Stamp Grand Opening is May 16th. The sneak peeks are scheduled to officially kick off on May 2nd, but...........I couldn't wait to ink up one of my 'Darling' images and, well, I needed to make something for this challenge so I decided to throw caution to the wind and color up a little surprise for you. I hope you enjoy it!
Going for a Ride
This 'Little Darling' is called 'Going for a Ride' and it's part of my new rubber stamp line titled "Little Darlings". Isn't it just the cutest??? I promise you...all of the others are just as cute :-) I paired 'Going for a Ride' with one of the backgrounds from MIC called 'Petals and Palings' and I just LOVE the combination!
This beautifully shaped card was cut using my Grand Calibur and the SB Grand Nestie 'Labels 4' dies. The gorgeous dp's are by Lily Bee Design's 'Picket Fence' collection and will be available in my store...Love To Stamp. The flowers are from several manufacturers: Magnolia, WOC, Recollections, and Petaloo.
I colored this 'Little Darling' with Copic markers. Here are the details:
skin - E0000, 000, 00, 01, 11, R20
hair - E41, 42, 43, 44, Y21
dress - BV0000, 00, 02
wheelbarrow- E41, 42, 43, 44, W00, 1, 3, 5, 7

greenery - YG21, 23, 25

That's it for today! I really hope you enjoyed my card. I so absolutely enjoyed making it and showing off one of my Little Darlings rubber stamps.
I'll have more announcements about Love To Stamp and Little Darlings in the coming days. So stay tuned!!!
