For today’s challenge I chose to pull out my “Buds and Blooms” stamp set and the new Pretty in Pink ink along with this month’s ink of the month, Raspberry Rose plus some Mossy Meadows ink for my greenery.

I used the Granite Grey ink and the fun “Sweater Weather Stencil” to create a soft back ground for my card.

We've also got a fun sketch to inspire you for the month of January! You don't have to use it but it's there for you to use if you need a little kickstart....feel free to use it any time!

Purple Hyacinth Celebration

Happy Friday all!  Today I’m joining a couple of the Bloom Brigade from Power Poppy to share some fun cards.

I chose to use the gorgeous Hyacinth from the “Hellebore & Hyacinth” stamp set.

I colored my blooms with Copic Markers and then added a few fine details with Polychromos Pencils.
I also added some Liquid Pixie Dust from Inkon3 to make my back drop shimmer!

Now… take a look at what my fellow Bloomies have created to share with you today…

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you plan to get creative this weekend.
