On Tiptoe


I made a card using this pretty fairy stamp from Lili of the Valley called On Tiptoe. She is so cute! I enjoyed coloring her a lot!

I used patterned papers from BasicGrey's Kioshi line and tried to match my coloring with the colors in this collection. I lightly inked the background with tumbled glass, peeled paintand shabby shutters when the paper was still in the die.

Sorry that my boy (Jamie) insisted to be included in the photo shoot. That's part of his handsome big butt and tail...

I also used a sketch from Waltzing Mouse stamps blog for my card. Here is the sketch:

I mirrored the sketch to fit my image. Hope it's ok. =) They have some really pretty stamps that match Nesties label dies that just make me drool.

Also, Courtney started her peeks for her May release for Practicing Creativity. Don't forget to stop by her blog and take a look!

That's all for today. Hope you have a beautiful weekend! =)


Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my goodness this is so pretty!! I looks so great with that BG. You colored the image so perfectly to showcase that BG paper. I mean I can't believe Basic Grey isn't bangin' your door down now, cause you could totally sell their product.

Love, Love, LOVE this Alice! I've been wanting some of the LOTV stamps but I'm so far behind in stamping and I keep ordering but haven't gotten around to them yet! So glad I can enjoy them through you and others though! This is totally charming! Delightfully colored and designed! TFS!
