I'm Sweet, Fabulous & Sassy! Altered Project

I have been stalking a few blogs in search of some challenges that appeal to me. I recently found All Sorts & Charisma Cardz.

All Sorts has a challenge for 3 punches for Week 70 & Charisma Cardz has a neat card sketch for Challenge # 37. So I did em' both! Even though this is not a card, I still think it was pretty creative =)
I am especially thrilled about it because not only is an altered project (my favorite way to play) but it was something I actually made for myself! *grin*

I adore Uptown Angel by Kenny K and I have been meaning to buy it for a while. Let's just say I was inspired to grab her today. I had a super fantastic day and am feeling pretty Sweet, Fabulous and Sassy all at the same time. I can't reveal my super exciting news until tomorrow, but let me tell you this... You will understand the sentiment I created for this image when I spill it tomorrow! lol

If you like this sentiment, watch for it to be available soon over at My Inkie Fingers - Digi's With Attitude. Yes, you read that right... I just revealed the new store name! Wait until you all get a sneak peak at the new stamp line. I am hoping to post a rough draft sneak peek on Friday. Cross your fingers XXXX!!!!

I love coloring with my prismas, but am secretly aching to invest in some Copics. I think my coloring is pretty good, but the copic colored images really blow my coloring right out of the water! I used a lot of my glitter Sakura Gel Pens on this image, and used spray glitter on the image and the black bg where the rhinestone flourish is. I love anything that sparkles!

In this close up you can see where I used the punches and made my own flowers for the All Sortz Challenge I also sprayed them with Shimmer Spray to make them sparkle. I have a new found love for making my own flowers from punches. I am sure many of you already know how to do this. If you don't and would like me to do a tutorial I can (if more than one person asks) If not you can always check out Penny Duncan Creations. She has a great tutorial over on her blog. Here is a link to her Flower Tutorials. Be warned... your jaw will DROP! She has some amazing flowers!!
