utterly BEAUTIFUL new Sheena stamps from Crafter's Companion!

wow, so, seriously!  Crafter's Companion might just have some new releases - like, a TON of them - and i love these new sets from Sheena Douglass!  i was SO excited to ink them up and colour away with my sweet Spectrum Noir markers.  check THIS beauty out!

the stamp set is "True Colors" from the new Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy series - in this particular set, there are two BIG, beautiful butterflies, and 5 fabulous sentiments, and trust me, when you start colouring them, you can't STOP. 

stamped both the image and sentiment on Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured with the following Spectrum Noir markers:

LY1, CT3, CT4, GB3, OR1, OR2, CR8, BG4, BG7, BG9, True Black

die-cut my sentiment with a Nesties die and inked around the edges with one of the new StazOn Midi ink pads (coming soon!) in Orange Zest (my fave, of course!) and added some bits and bobs here and there.  :)

and i used the sketch at the lovely Lesley Croghan's blog, Always Playing With Paper for the #3 challenge...  here's the sketch:

there are some differences, but this is what inspired me for my card design, so there you go.  :)

and that's all she wrote!  hope you have a fantabulatious hump day!  we got MORE snow, and to be honest, it's not going to interfere with my need to go out with the hubbin for some frozen yogurt this evening!  hee hee.
