Don't Worry Be Hoppy - Miss Ink Stamps

Welcome back!  I've got some more Miss Ink cuteness for you today and I'm painting with glitter again!  Check out that pond!

This technique was perfect for the water in the pond... I love the way it shines like water would!  I used the Scene Builder stencil to create most of the background.  I used a curvy edge from my stash for the grass with some Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron.  Then I added the clouds using Tumbled Glass.  Next I used a heat gun to dry the ink before I added my sun so that the yellow and blue wouldn't blend to green.  Then I masked off the grass and blended on my sun with Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade.  Then blended the pond onto some scrap cardstock using Mermaid Lagoon and Broken China and cut it out.  I stenciled some grass tufts directly onto the grass area and also onto some scrap and cut that out.  I popped up the pond over the grass and then placed the extra grassy tufts around the pond.

Once the pond was attached,  I took a paint tray and squirted in a little Glossy Accents and added some glitter.. stirred it up and painted the water with it.  then I added the extra grass pieces around it.

I then started adding all of my Copic colored images with varying thicknesses of foam tape.  I just love these adorable critters from the Say Cheese set... the cutie pie costumed mice and their little cohorts make me smile every time!

And the little coneflowers from the Springtime Bunny set made the perfect accents around the pond and I saved a couple to place with the punny sentiment.

Do I even need to mention my favorite Trinity sequins??

And that's me... don't you just love how that glitter makes that water glimmer??  Loving this technique of painting with glitter!

I'm playing along over at Double Trouble's current challenge which is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge:

I'm playing right down the middle top to bottom!  And since I've got sequins on my project, I meet the twist of "Bling".  Also, DT is partnering with Cupcake Inspirations this week whose challenge is Flowers w/Pearls or Sequins!

  You should check these two out for sure and play along for chances to win a prize!

Thanks so much for stopping and hope you'll come again soon!

Another cute the dressed up frog and that glittery pen colored water is so pretty and looks like a puddle I would jump in. Adorable scene, great coloring and cute scene. I think it's easy for you to do a TicTacToe challenge because you just add what you need to complete a row, column or Thanks for sharing with us at Double Dare and Cupcake Inspirations.
