inky impressions design team

hey everyone!  i was asked to be apart of the inky impressions design team!  i'm so excited about this opportunity! :)  my term starts in september, and the new designers were given a digital stamp to make something with, and this is what i came up with! :)

ack! i just love this card! :)  it's so sweet!  for the card base i used a chipboard album base that i got from micheals, and the bottom is a scalloped circle card that i also got from micheals.   and i used a little slip of paper to make it into an easel card.

here's just the top.  for the background paper i used my minds eye, 6 x 6 dwell collection.  it's a very fun girly bubble-gummy kind of theme.

here is the bottom half.  the yellow base is from the same paper collection.  the sentiment "believe" came from a k & company die cut pack from hobby lobby, i used puffy dots on the back of the sentiment to hold up the card.  the flowers are from i am roses, and the brown diecut is from martha stewart.

i colored the digital image with my tim holtz distress markers.  i have a problem coloring digital images with my copics since i have a laser printer that uses toner.  the toner tends to flake off, but if i print it on watercolor paper and watercolor it i dont have that problem. yay! :)  if you like this image you can get it at inky impressions, i hope you check them out! :)

here's a close up of the corners, i used i am roses cherry bosssoms and tangerine roses, chartreuse crystal sprays from hobby lobby,  flat backed rhinestones for bling, and an acetate swirly sheet from k and company.

i hope you enjoy this project and check out inky impressions too.  im very exciteed to be apart of their design team and can't wait to show you what else they have to offer!
