Bling It On at Inky Impressions!

Happy Wednesday! Today starts a new challenge at Inky Impressions and I created this card to introduce it here.  The challenge calls for BLING!  Pearls too if that's your thing.  Well it is MY thing - I love to add sparkly rhinestones and pearls to anything!

This beautiful rubber stamp from Inky Impressions is called "Marleigh and Pebbles Ice Skating" and I just love this sweet thing.  I am so inspired by Inky Impressions stamps - the creativity just flows the minute the rubber hits the paper!  I colored this with Copic markers and then added a few details and highlights for depth with Prismacolor pencils.  The pencils provide a finer line and lighter touch for flushed cheeks and a warm sunny glow on highlighted areas.

I followed the layout from Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge #131 and am entering this card in that challenge.  It was the perfect sketch for this image.

And I'm playing along in these other challenges today:
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Diamonds and Pearls

Now stop on by the Inky Impressions Challenges blog and take a peak at the Inkettes inspiration for you - you'll love the creativity of their challenge cards. And I hope you'll join in on our challenge this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
