Mahalo, Christy!



A few days ago, Christy Croll, the artist of Tiddly Inks' HuggABuggs, sent me a sweet email.

She said she noticed an influx of stampers from Hawaii who bought her digis and attributed this to my referrals. So she graciously sent a couple of (new!) images that I was getting ready to purchase. Sweet!







The mermaid is carrying a large pearl, and I used Jennifer's technique in this video for making perfect dots with Liquid Pearls using her "flicking" technique.




And here's a shot of the Copics that I used on this card. Nope, not doing it all the time. Only when I remember!

Stamps: Tiddly Inks digital image, Hero Arts sentiment
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Copic markers, Nestabilities, Liquid Pearls, ribbon, pearls, pop dots
