Buckets of Sweetness

Hi friends,

Been a few since I've checked into blogland but give me some new stamps and a little stampy time and I have a ton to share! :) The first set I played with is the new Buckets of Love from There She Goes and I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

I practiced coloring with my PrismaColor pencils and a PrimsaColor blending pen. The blending pen is a bit easier for me to use than the OMS... but that could just be because I'm used to using markers and find the OMS and blending stubs to take a bit more work. Of course being the glitter fiend that I am I had to add a coating of Glossy Accents and a dusting of glitter to the candy. After assembling the card I had to go back and add dots of Liquid Pearls... I just can't leave the edges of the main layers naked. They just need something... stitching, paper piercing or Liquid Pearls! ;)

Stamps: Buckets of Love (There She Goes)
Paper: Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette, Basic Black (SU!), Hibiscus Burst (PTI), Choice Snow White (TE), designer (K & Company).
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, W2 Copic marker.
Other: PrismaColor Pencils and PrismaColor Blender Pen, Pink Divine Twine, White Opal Liquid Pearls and Glossy Accents (Ranger), Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (SU!), Tiny Twinkles (TE), foam dimensionals.
Dies: Small Scallop Border Die and Scallops and Circles Impression Plate (TE), Circle and Petitte Scalloped Circle (Spellbinders).


  1. Oh so pretty! Love the glossy accents and glitter on the main image! ove the liquid pearls too!

  2. I love the vibrance and brightness of this. You and Sankari have a gorgeous "look" in common! Your pearls and your bow and your whole-heartedness....it is VERY unique to see the "in your face" in the MOST POSITIVE SENSE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW G-D of the word! Love it!!!!!! I thought I wouldn't see it in another artist...yet you are SO unique from Sankari as well! Very cool,,,,very cool!!!!


Thanks for your sweet comments! I love hearing from you. :)
