Etsy Inspired Challenge # 81

I have always loved the Pur Innocence images, especially seeing so many super adorable cards from sweet Donna's (be sure to stop by as she is having a giveaway). I joked to Donna that she should get the images for FREE since she does such incredible job with all of them!

Now I finally find the chance and courage to make a card with my one and only Pur Innocence stamp (thank you, Kathy R.). Etsy-inspired Challenge #81 is sponsered by Digi Stamp Characters by Heather Ellis. Her images are absolutely precious! Heather will be giving the lucky challenge winner 3 digital images(!!!). All I need to do is check out the Ponder and Stitch and be inspired by. I chose the purse (see above) image that I loosely based my card on. I am still improving my copic coloring skills...so don't laugh!!
My fellow Canadian blog friend Anita  made a suggestion in my last post's comment. She asked me to share one funny photo of David's trip to Italy in each post. I thought that is great idea, so I'm parting you with one fun photo and hope this will put a smile on your face!
David took this photo for his travel mates who posed in a shop of Sorrento. The Italian have some humor!!
That's "some aprons", huh? That will make a great GAG gift, wouldn't it?

I ♥ your Balloon Girl! I've never colored that image--you did an amazing job with the Copics! The little butterflies are a nice touch.
And what can I say--awesome aprons!! I think another fig leaf is needed, too! (I'm blushing.....)

Aw... thanks Vanessa! And Donna,.... I'm blushing,too! I wasn't sure if I should add Parental Guidance needed (LOL) when viewing the photo!

Lovely card - that is a nice Pure Innocence - I don't have her... I'll have to try the challenge and maybe win... You did such a great job on colouring the image... I'm loving the photo as well.... quite funny and would make a great gag gift.

I'm speechless after the apron picture Virginia, LOL!!! Reminds me of the jeans and jean skirts that were so popular in Japan that people wore for real that look as if they are only wearing underwear... lol

Love your sweet digi girl and I would have not known you just started with copics, the coloring is beautiful and it is such a sweet card! Loved what inspired you with the purse in those colors and the butterflies make the card charming!

I must admit I blushed too with the gag photo and had to make sure my Grant 10 year old wasn;t around but I did laugh and what a good gag!

Suzanne C said...

That is the sweetest card and love the colors you used to color her and the coloring is fantastic! The picture is a hoot! That would throw someone if you put that on in the kitchen to cook.
