FM191.. Warm Cocoa with Tiddly Inks!

Happy Friday everyone.. I hope you're New Year is starting off great! Today at the Friday Mashup our Hostess is Heidi and she's bringing us a fun Winter themed challenge and asking us to use snowflakes on our projects as well.

I'm using this adorable Tiddly Inks image called Cocoa Wishes. I'm obsessed with these images lately.. And my Copics Ha Ha! 

I printed the image out onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb card stock and set it aside overnight to dry. If you are new to Digital stamps you'll want to test your printer and see if it's compatible with coloring over the images once they are printed. I let mine sit overnight and I haven't had any issues. I usually print out a few sheets at once. 

Then I colored her in with my Copics and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the earmuffs, gloves & coat. I created  a very light background with the C-0 marker and then I added a few dots around the images with the Colorless blender. I trimmed the piece to the size I wanted and then created my card. 

I created a White card base and added a piece of Pattern Paper I had on my desk from another project. This is from one of those huge Holiday stacks at Michael's I think it's from Recollections. I added the stitched border with the lil' Inkers Rectangle Stitched dies. Then I added a piece of Stitched Basic Grey ribbon from SU and tied a bow. I adhered my image panel with some dimensional adhesive. It's a different layout for me.. I love how the everything is tilted. 

Be sure to head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see what the other Design Team members created for you and Link up.. The challenge is open until Wednesday @6pm EST. 

There is a Design Team call over at Tiddly Inks if you are a fan of these images as well..  It's open until Jan. 15th. You can see more of my Tiddly Ink projects on these post... Monster Party, Hello Baby & Miss You. 

Thanks for stopping by today... Have a great weekend!
