Hope Today

Its been a while since I uncapped my copic markers. Confession time....I colored my first ballerina and tossed her out, then came back and started over. My point is -that its OK to "practice" if things don't work out the first time, try again! I do it all the time!

This little charm has been in my box of trinkets for years, just waiting for the right project to give it a new life. Its not all shiny and new, but frankly that makes it even better if you ask me! To answer the question "YES" I did mix cream and white, and yes I did mix silver and gold, I am after all the creative rule breaker...and I have a reckless reputation to uphold! LOL 

I only added a touch of glitter because I wanted the foil star confetti to shine without too much competition.

This sweet little mouse ballerina is from under the big stop stamp set by Stampin'Up! The inside sentiment reads " I hope today tickles you pink" {isn't that cute?}
I used my digital studio to enlarge and print her out.I for one LOVE my digital studio! Check it out if you like saving space and printing your own images.  She is colored with copics, and layered with nestabilities. The embossing folder is from the fancy frames Cricut companion set.And the patterned paper is from the Pink Paislee Soiree collection. Now that I have been bitten by the coloring bug again, I will no doubt be digging out all of my line art stamps!

Happy creating yall'

That is soooooooooo cute!! Love the glitter detail on the tutu. And because of the silver and gold I've got that Burl Ives "silver and gold" song stuck in my head, but I only know the "silver & gold" part ... so it's looping lol. Off to find the song on my itunes :D

I am big into practice too! And can I just say, that your copic tutu is darling (and so is the rest of the card). I love that touch of restrained glitter!
