I've got a bubbly bunch of coconuts...deedleedee...

Good morning, yall! (Ok, it's not so much morning...I slept in a bit, but you know what I mean.) It's Saturday, so that means it's time for another edition of Jen's Sketch for You to Try! It's also the first week of June, so we get to welcome a brand spankin new guest...Dawn Easton! I'm a huge fan of Dawn's work, so I was thrilled when Jen said she was playing with us this month!

I got a giant package the other day from Stamping Bella, so I decided to ink up Leaning Tower of Stella ... oh, how I love her. And of course, I had to pair her with Basic Grey Cupcake paper...so fun and happy!
I stamped her in Brilliance Graphite Black (still my favorite ink for Copic Markers) and colored her using tips from Marianne's new blog. Have you seen it???? If you have Copics, this is a MUST READ!!

Here is a close-up so you can see the details on the image:

I added Stickles on her wand and tiara, Liquid Applique on the cupcake top (then colored with a Copic marker), and Diamond Glaze on her lips and shoes for shine. A Bella Dot finished off the top of the cupcake...it was a non-matching pink, so I colored it with a red Copic marker. Perfect for the cherry on top.

That's it for today...don't forget to check out samples from Amy, Carole, Jen & Dawn. Say a prayer for Susan's computer, which is undergoing surgery because it died on Wednesday. And if you upload to SCS, please use the keyword SFYTT so we can all see your awesome creations!

I hope you guys have a fabulous day...we are (barring rain) going swimming later, and hanging out with family. Happy Saturday!

Hey Shannan!

another fab card as always. and i agree....Marianne's blog is a MUST READ! did you happen to get some of Em's copic paper in your great big giant package. i got some just after it came out but last night was the first time i tried it. i've been using papertrey for my copics and this paper changes my technique just a bit (you don't need quite as much ink) but i think i'm gonna love it!
