Inky Impressions 2nd Design Team Call

The first time I saw Lili and Angelica, the newest little girls from Inky Impressions, I was hooked! An instant fan! It has to be those big beautiful eyes!

When the uber-talented ladies at Inky Impressions announced the Design Team call I didn't have to give it a second thought! I would love to be part of this exciting new crew as more images are released. So, I started coloring the two images I had (I now have four and wanting more!) When I finished the images I couldn't decide which to use, so I did the obvious -- I made two cards!

Lili with the Birthday Cake
I really like this one the most of the 2 cards. Just something about the chocolate cake! (I just realized that every time I color this it ends up chocolate! hehe)
Both images are colored with Copics: E71 Champagne, RV11 Pink, Y21 Buttercup Yellow, and B95 Light Grayish Cobalt. Both cards use dp from the same DCWV stack. Die cuts are with Nestibilities.
Angelica Dreaming
This image of Angelica reminds me of when I was young, always day dreaming. Actually, not much has changed!

As part of the application for the Design Team Call, I should be posting a paper craft project that has stamping on it. I'm sorry to say that I don't have recent paper projects other than greeting cards. The cards have been my focus. I did a lot of scrapbooking for my son to showcase his Navy career, but he has those books. Please don't hold that against me as I would love to be part of the Inky Impressions Design Team!

Thank you for the opportunity to try out for the Design Team! Inky Impressions has a very promising future! The stamps are the highest quality and packaged so beautifully!

Hi Barb - As always,both cards are awesome. They are both coloured so nicely - just love those big eyes and how you've coloured them too. I'm sure it's the chocolate cake that draws most crafters to the first card - come'on, who doesn't like chocolate! Two lovely creations, Barb, and GOOD LUCK on the DT Call.

Oh Barb...these are FANTASTIC!! I love your COLORING for sure, and your use of embellies and the layouts too. Love that pink frame that you sat Angelica on in the 2nd card. They'd be CRAZY not to pick you for DT! I know you would be a wonderful asset to Inky Impressions :) Best Wishes!!
