XOXO... - SSS142

Hi All! Hope you have all been having a Wonderful week! Well it's Saturday and you know what that means... It's time for another Fabulous Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge! Yay! 8-)  And as this is the Third Saturday of the month, we have a fun Spin too, which means there's a Terrific prize up for grabs to one very lucky winner! 8-) Our spin this time is "Non-Traditional Valentine" 8-)  So Without further delay, Here's my take on Miss Korin's Awesome Sketch and the spin... 8-) 
I have  a confession to make, lol... I am Absolutely Smitten with LOTV's images and have a bunch of them in my stash, but have only recently been brave enough to start inking them up.. Or more directly, coloring them up.. lol See, when I first started collecting them, I had just started using Copics.. And for anyone who is just starting out with Copics, it takes a while to get the hang of them..  And I'm still learning, lol  but finally feel like my coloring skills might finally do these little Cuties justice.. So at long last, I inked up my Darling LOTV Toadstool for Two image with Memento Tuxedo black, stamped it onto Flourishes Classic White and colored these little Sweeties up with my trusty Copics. I cut out my image and scored the edges with the help of my Score Pal for a nice clean look and added a touch of shading with Antique Linen Distress ink. For my Mats and BG layers I chose a combination kraft CS from my stash and some Darling dp's from MME'sBlink of an Eye collection. My Pink by Design Sentiment was stamped onto a Cute little die cut tag with Memento Rich Cocoa. To finish it all up, I popped up my image panel with some foam tape, added a bit of ribbon from my stash, and a fun little button all tied up with some Yummy Baker's twine from MAD Stamper finds.. 8-)

And here's Miss Korin's Awesome sketch!

I hope you can play along with us at The Sweet Stop! Can't wait to see what you all come up with this week. And as always, please, make sure to stop by and take a peek at the Fabulousness the rest of the Sweet Stop Sugar Babies have created for your inspiration.
