Sister Stamps release day!


You didn't think I was done just because the blog hops are over, did you? ;)
Of course not! It's release day for the three new Sister Stamps birthday cuties; Mariko, Takeo and Miyoko and they can be found at a number of online stamp retailers, including All That Scraps.

So I couldn't resist inking up little Miyoko again and this time I paired her up with some fun Cakewalk papers by October Afternoon. I love how those crazy party animals in the background look like they are all super excited. Whether they are excited about the party games or getting their paws on one of Miyoko's delish cupcakes remains to be seen. I suspect it is a bit of both though. :)
As always, I pulled my Copic colors from the papers I wanted to use. I know last month I was coloring up images away from home without any reference and I have definitely come to the realization that I work much, much better when I have a color story to match to and guide me. That's just how I roll, LOL!

Alrighty, thanks again for stopping by for the celebration this week. And even though the Sister Stamps release is a wrap, tomorrow we are jumping right into a Sweet November spotlight to kick off even more new release fun!
I hope I see you back then!
