Eclectric Paperie and Stampavie BLOG HOP!

Hello AGAIN :0) I have a special 2nd post today for a SUPER Special Blog Hop!

The DT at Eclectric Paperie has asked the DT for Stampavie to join them this week for a Special Blog Hop! Love it!

I went to work right away on my Stampavie image from Mo Manning - Mummu's Laundry. Colored with my Copics - and then shaded with a few Prisma Pencils.
Then for my card I went just nuts with a BUNCH of October Afternoon papers!
I totally fell in love with the wording paper for this image, it repeats all kinds of fun saying and statements about remembering the olden days and such, and seemed it was a must. I then went with the quilt feel - Adore that she is hanging a quilt out on the line, so I cut out a bunch of one inch squares then sewed them to the the worded paper in a quilt pattern. I matted it all to a black and white dotted pattern. Bold yes... but I think it works.

A satin ribbon, with a My Favorite Things Border Die cut across the middle. Mulberry roses, with Martha Stewart branch punches. The sentiment.. again just too perfect for this image, is from My favorite Things Just my Type set. OH and for some odd reason I added two Tim Holtz hanger paper clips... don't know why exactly, but they were fun and different!

And don't fall over shocked here. But I did the inside as well :0)

So NOW you need some details of the hop don't you ! Ok...

I don't usually use a lot of color - this was inspiring as I don't use markers much either - thanks.
