Beauty Lies Within

Beauty Lies Within

Whew, we have almost made it to the end of May-cember.  At least that is my new term for it (totally stolen, of course…because I’m too busy to make up something).  All of the crazy of December without the presents!  My boys’ activities are winding down and their end-of-school-itis is ramping up.  Clearly, I needed to take a moment in my stamp room to enjoy some coloring!

Beauty Lies Within by Jen Timko | Sandra Girl Stamp Set and Die by Picket Fence Studios, Kiss Kiss Sandra Girl Stamp by Picket Fence Studios, Random Dots Stencil by Picket Fence Studios, Copic Coloring, Distress Oxide Ink, Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence StudiosAnd what better to color than one of the Beautiful Girls?!!  I have been in love with Sandra since the moment I saw her.  In fact, I now have TWO Sandras!  The original Sandra Girl and also Kiss Kiss Sandra Girl.  The difference?  Kiss Kiss is just a big larger.  And now, soon to the shop will be a coordinating die for the original.  Oh happy day!  Something about this image reminds me of a friend of mine who loves pink so I choose pink as my accent color.  I used Copic Markers to color the image and the little butterfly too.

Beauty Lies Within by Jen Timko | Sandra Girl Stamp Set and Die by Picket Fence Studios, Kiss Kiss Sandra Girl Stamp by Picket Fence Studios, Random Dots Stencil by Picket Fence Studios, Copic Coloring, Distress Oxide Ink, Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence StudiosI love practicing my Copic skills on these lovely images!  Something about their design makes it so fun to work on shading.  Totally what I needed in my chaotic week was a little time to play.  Once Sandra was done, I used the Random Dots Stencil with Distress Oxide Ink to create a background on watercolor paper.  I added the sentiment from the Kiss Kiss set.  What a wonderful message for any friend, don’t you think?

I hope you enjoy this card and that you will have a bit of time for crafting this weekend.  If you celebrate Memorial Day, I wish you a safe holiday full of remembrance and thanks.

    The light pinks make this card so delicate and airy, and the sentiment is so lovely.

    I love this. What a stunning image. Picket Fence Studios is just SO much fun. In fact, I just created a card today using one of my favorite Picket Fence stamp sets (you can see by clicking link below). Thanks for all the great inspiration. Keep it coming!!!
