Mystery Image Swap

I had so much fun with the last Mystery Image swap that I had to join the next one on Stamp Girls Gone Wild. This time my dear friend Rose was the hostess and she chose these cute Elzybells girls as our image!

I wanted to play more with the Gamsol magic technique and I pulled the colors out of this fun paper from My Mind's Eye that I picked up on Cape Cod in April.

It looked a little flat to me though, so I used a Quickie Glue pen to adhere some glitter bling to the paper. This is a quick & easy way to add a little something to your project.

The layout is from Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #7. I love Taylor's sketches!

I think I'm getting better at this colored pencil blending thing. Here's a close-up of my girls. I added a little glitter to them too. I just can't help myself. These girls are just too fun to color! I'm definitely going to have to order some myself!

Yeah Stef, your girls are adorable. I have been enjoing seeing what everyone is doing with those two. I just bought some gamasol and stumps (again) at a rubber stamp convention and broke down and bought the prisma pencils so I need to start practicing. Love that wild paper you used!
