Inky Impressions Challenge - Embossing & one for The Sugar Bowl

Hi everyone. This is my 2nd post today, if you're looking for my WMS Birthday Hop Waltz card click HERE.

This week on Inky Impressions our challenge is Embossing - heat or dry - it's up to you :)

My image is called All Bundled Up Lili and I've coloured her using Copic sketch markers -
Sweater - RV91, 93 95. 
Socks/Gloves/Scarf - G24, 82, 85, 
Boots/Pants - W3, 5, 7 ,9. 
Skin - E00, 02, 21, 51, 
Hair - E41, 43, 44

My papers are Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on my white card. 

Be sure to check out the Inky Impressions challenge blog to see what me teamies have created. Remember, to be in with a chance of winning a fabby prize pack you must play along with each challenge this month. 


My next card is one I  made for the Sugar Bowl Challenge, which is a sketch by Kiki. These Sassy images are just fantastic to colour up an the one I've used on my card, Hippy Chick, is among my favourites - of course there are new ones released now and I've already got a wishlist going, lol. 

How pretty is she??!!??

Simply Sassy are also having a guest DT call. If you want to be in with a shot then you must use a Sassy image and create a card in your own style. All the deets are HERE.

Again, I've used copics to colour her - 

Skin - E00, 02, 11, 21, 51
Hair - E44, 43, 42
Top/Hairband - R81, 83, 85
Leg Warmers/Socks? - BG0000, 10, 11
Shoe - W3, 5, 7
Flowers - Y15, 18. BG05, 07. R35, 39
Eyes - BG05, 07

The papers on this card I've had FOR.EV.ER!! They are Rose Garden by Papermania. I've matted them with rose pink cardstock and some dark brown paper from BG Stella Ruby.

The chipboard circle behind my image has been painted with Adirondack acrylic paint. dabber "Shell Pink" and the brads are from Whiff of Joy. My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the adage ticket is from Tim Holtz Idea-ol-ogy range.
