Music expresses that which can't be said

Good Morning! Just wanted to say a quick CONGRATS to my dear friend Natalie S. who placed her SU order from my site last night (ya for shopping 24/7) and earned a free SAB set! I love when my friends get stamping goodies for free! Yah Natalie! Hehe! =)

So I played along with a few blog challenges including Mercy's Tuesday sketch and the Color Dare color challenge! The colors are SU's Old Olive, Only Orange (which I swaped for Pumpkin Pie), Chocolate Chip and Brocade Blue! I modified the sketch just a little bit to include the sentiment at the top since it had to be there, right!?!

Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • I used my Blender pens and ink pads to color in the different images with colors! I don't have all the SU markers so using my Blender pens, I can achieve any color with this set of three markers for only $9.95! I pooled color on the ink pad lid (or you can use re-inkers) and used the Blender pen to grab some color and start coloring! I love doing this because I feel like a real artist!
  • My background paper comes from the Thoroughly Modern DSP pack and is actually Soft Suede, but it was so pretty and swirly I thought it went along with my stamped image just fine!
  • The Music word on the sentiment is actually colored with Brocade Blue ink! I first stamped the whole stamp in Chocolate Chip, used a Blender pen to remove the ink from Music, then used my Blender pen again to add Brocade Blue ink! Good thing these pens are Dual-Tipped and come in a 3-pack! =)
