Inky Dinky Drop Hop ...

Happy FRIDAY everyone!!! It's time for the Inky Dinky Drop Hop (Inky Impressions Store) , and it all begins at the blog of INKY MAMA herself, Nicole. I'm honored to have been ask to be Guest Designer for the Hop. How cool is that? So, let's get started.

If you have come to me from Kristen's ... you are on the right path! When you leave me ... your next stop will be at Michele's. If you just happened upon this posting, and want to play along ... you'll want to hop on back to Nichole's Blog, so you get started on the right path. Oh, and before I forget ... there's an AWESOME PRIZE for some lucky winner which will be drawn from one of the Inkette's blogs ... so be sure to hop along to each one and leave a comment! All the details can be found at the LAST STOP in the hop!!


This hop is all about sharing with you the NEW WINTER RELEASES and are they ADORABLE!!! Besides the new, awesome images ... they have NEW Inky Dinky Drops ... and they come in a TON OF COLORS!!! I think I got every shade of purple available, teehee ... can you guess my favorite color???



Today I'm using the new "Angelica's Lantern" ... isn't she ADORABLE!!! I used Prismacolor Markers for my coloring of Angelica. To create my scene, I stamped Angelica onto Whispter White cs ... then masked using Eclipse masking ... and stamped my pine tree image (by Northwood) using Versafine black ink. I used Prisma pencils to color the trees and blue chalk for the sky. The addition of Prisma Glitter and Liquid Applique gave me the texture/dimension I was hoping for. What do you think??

Thanks for hopping by and please be sure to stop by each DT members blogs to see all the other NEW images and products. And, be sure to leave a little love! Enjoy the hop!!
