Happy Anniversary Tiddly Inks. Christy & Melissa asked me to be a guest designer for their birthday bash. Each Thursday, they are giving away a prize to those who comment and join in the fun on their blog. Today is my day to share something special created using Tiddly inks Digital Stamps for the celebration using their theme "Frame the Moment."
I picked Aida. I have to admit the hat & the book sold me. Plus she comes with suitcases! I wasn't sure exactly how i as going to use her. I started off printing a bunch onto watercolor paper and begin coloring Aida using Copic Markers. I had so much fun and that was just the beginning. I didn't know either how i was going to incorporate the theme into my piece. I figured i would just start working and see where the piece would lead me. I had this leftover watercolor paper that had some basic layers on it. Actually it was a leftover piece from "Moments in time." It seemed perfect for this adventure.
I began throwing some color onto the background, playing around, adding in layers of color. I then came up with framing her thoughts onto the page. I kicked around some sentences and finally settled onto this one. Aida then became Casandra as she packed up all her hopes and dreams. I even wrote her name onto the top suitcase as she was created with someone special in mind.
I added in all kinds of elements in the background like stamp images, rub-ons, and brads. I love the 3-D elements on Casandra too. The roses on her hat are popped up as well as those awesome connie sneakers. I am really happy with how she turned out and admit she is one of my favorite pieces to date. I will hate to see her go but she is destined to conquer the world via a very special friend. Besides, it will give me a chance to create some more. I have already spied some other digital stamps i want to add to my collection.
