It's a Lil Little Hop!

Good morning!

Are you ready to get your hop on with Tickled Pink's Lil Little blog hop? These sweet kiddos are sure to delight with each stop along the way and I promise that you are not going to want to miss a single blog of all the participating Pink Ladies and guests because as always we've got some great prizes up for grabs to celebrate this release! :)

Once you have finished hopping don't forget that all six of the new stamps are now available in the Tickled Pink store.

I used the adorable Lil Little Lilith for my card today and once again I did a bit of altering to remove the skully pockets from her dress. But I didn't stop there, this time around I also wiped away the handle of her umbrella and replaced it with some little flower stems that I drew in. I've actually been getting quite a few questions on what I mean when I say I 'wiped away' part of an image so I went ahead and did a quick video to share and show you just how easy it is. I love how this technique can open up the versatility of any given image and make them work for a number of different types of cards. :)


Alrighty, I'm sending you on your way now as Angela has the next blog that you'll want to be sure and visit today. If you ever get lost just reference back to the complete hop list at the Tickled Pink blog and don't forget to leave a comment there as well telling us which of these new stamps is your fave of the release and why... we would love to know!

Hugs!

Hellow Miss Young. I have to tell you that Maddie and I watched your video last night and really enjoyed it. I love getting to know you even more by putting a voice to your personality. lol... Great to watch you work as well. I do have one question. Do you use your dry finger to go over it if the baby wipe left some moisture on the stamp? I tend to have that problem from time to time and if I don't pay attention it ruins my stamped image. lol...Anyway, Lilth looks fabulous on this one. I love, love how have colored her hair. Just beautiful. Have a great day. Hugs

Leanne said...

I love the quilted background on your card and what a fabulous alteration of Lilith. Love those vibrant colors to go with the soft and pretty paper.
YAY!! Another tutorial! This one is fabulous! I usually use a wet paper towel, but will definitely try the baby wipes. I also use, depending on what color ink, the same colored pen by Memento. I haven't purchased a multiliner from Copic since those have been working for me. Thanks again for sharing!! Hugs,

Janine said...
