Cute Card Thursday Challenge

Here's my submission to the Cute Card Thursday Challenge - oops forgot to link up the picture earlier this morning. I finally inked up my High Hopes stamp Lizabeth Biking Angel. Isn't she cute as a button - reminds me of my girls riding their bikes.

The only restriction for this challenge is NO store bought designer paper so I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the cs I purchased from Mary Maxim a while back. I added some SU wide organza ribbon and dollar store floral ribbon to match. I matted the main image with SU cs. The image was stamped with Memories black ink and coloured in with Copics. The tag was made with the Tiny Tags Cuttlebug die - I rounded the corners with the SU corner rounder punch - and the sentiment is an SU rub-on.

FYI - Memories ink works well with Copics as long as you heat set the ink after stamping or let it dry overnight. The Copics will smudge the ink while colouring if its not heat set or left to dry overnight but the image is so crisp and clear. I usually use Brilliance ink for images I colour with Copics because you can colour almost instantly after stamping without worrying about heat setting. But you never really know until you try something new for yourself.

Well it's back to work today so have a great day and happy stamping.
