An Inky Christmas

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Friday!!!! Wow after all the crazy rain and thunderstorms here in Northeast Ohio it has finally cooled off and no more humidity. It has been so humid here this past week and finally feels great outside!! 

Today I would like to share with you a creation I made.... I know I know I shouldn't be thinking of Christmas not quite yet LOL...BUT......I saw that Inky Impressions has a challenge this week which is Christmas in July. I haven't played with these cute girls in quite some time and when I saw this challenge I had this adorable LiLi image in mind. This has to be one of my all time favorite Inky Impression Stamps. The reason I LOVE this stamp so much is that this image is so versatile. You can stamp anything you would like LiLi to celebrate. So today she is wishing you a Merry Christmas :) 

I also was looking for a great sketch to use, and I found this wonderful sketch over at The Sweet Shop...

Hope you enjoy my creation today using this AWESOME sketch and playing along with the Christmas in July challenge over at Inky Impressions. Thanks for taking a peek!

For this creation I paper pieced her darling pants and colored her with copic markers. I added a bit of glitter using my gel pen for her eye shadow, and gave her little nails a cute red color. I can't forget to mention I gave her a holiday hat to wear with her outfit.

Here are a list of copics I used for this creation.

Skin - E21, E00, E000, E000
R20 for cheeks.
Eyes - B21
Lips - R81
Hair - E25, E23, and E31
Sign and Shoes - G21, G24, G00

Thanks so much for stopping by today, Have a GREAT Friday everyone!!!

Here's The Recipe

Image - Inky Impressions stamped in Momento Ink and Colored with Copics
Sentiment - Misc
Paper - PTI White, Basic Black, Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas
