Amber Inks PINNY Party and Tiddly Inks

Soooo - are any of you Pinterest junkies, like me?  LOL  I can spend hours on Pinterest, checking out stuff and re-pinning like crazy.  So fun.  And I get so many great ideas!  I was thrilled to play along with the
It's basically only open through the weekend, so you'll have to get crackin' today if you want to play along!  But the way it works is like this - pick something you've pinned on Pinterest, that contains at least some paper, and re-create it!  Then link it up (click link above for Amber Inks).  That's it!  So I based my project on this pin by Rachel Cleveland here.  And here's my interpretation of it:

Of course, I had to go with something Alice in Wonderland related, I simply adore all things Alice - plus I was looking for a reason to use my new image from Saturated Canary.  :)  I colored her up with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.  The background (tag base) is glossy white cardstock from Stampin' Up!  sprayed with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz, stamped with a heart background stamp from SU! and then sponged with some red ink.  I then dragged the edges through a black ink pad and added a piece of ribbon from my scrap bag.  I'm quite pleased with the results!

I have another of Cassidy's cards to share with you today, too.  She is especially proud of this card - you know how sometimes you just love how something comes together?  I loved the look of satisfaction on her face when she completed this one.  :)  She wants to enter this into the:

Cass used Girl with Flag and Sandcastle from Tiddly Inks, colored with Prismacolor markers.  DP is from SU!  The flower is fussy-cut from the DP is applied with a foam dimensional dot.  Starfish is from my stash and the dolphin is a little wooden guy I picked up somewhere along the way, probably a $1 bin somewhere.  LOL  I love how she created the patchwork background, it just works so well with the colors and everything - plus she's helping me use up my scraps!  hee hee

Hope you all have a fabulous Sunday!  xoxo
