iCopic Weekly Challenge #49 - Red Hair

Hello Friends! I'm your hostess this week for the iCopic Weekly Challenge. This week's challenge is to color red hair. I started off by choosing the super cute Shop Till You Drop stamp by Tutti Cuti. This image is so adorable! I loved her big smile, so I paired the image up with the "You make me smile!" sentiment from the Hello Friend stamp set by Lawn Fawn. So next up was the challenge portion of coloring her hair red. I started off by laying down a base color of E11. Next I built up the color by adding E13, E99 and E18. I blended the colors starting with E99, then E13 and ending with E11. I added some streaks of Y38 to create the final blend and brighten up the hair color to a nice auburn shade. I finished coloring the rest of the image and added in some paper piecing for her hat and boots. I finished the card off by adding some ribbon and a little bit of bling to her hat with a red heart gem. Doesn't she look like a little fashionista?

So are you ready to give this week's challenge a go? Come on and give it a try! I can't wait to see what you all create! There is a prize up for grabs for each weekly challenge.

Tuesday Tips & Tricks - Divine Twine!

Hello Friends! It's my turn to host this week's iCopic Tuesday Tips and Tricks! So excited to share with you today one of my favorite iCopic products... Divine Twine! The name could not be more perfect to describe this fabulous product. It has many basic uses for hanging tags, tying up packages and stitching, but today's card focuses on it's most fun use as an embellishment. I started off my card by using the super sweet Sew Lovely set by Lawn Fawn. I stamped out 3 spool images onto Kraft cardstock, cut out each image and wrapped Cotton Candy Divine Twine around each spool. Just adding the twine makes the spools really pop! It's such an easy embellishment to add to your cards, but this simple embellishment can easily be transformed into a gift. Be sure to check out my little gift giving tip over at the iCopic Blog.

Stop by iCopic to view their wonderful selection of Divine Twine. It's such a great product. I know you will love it. I know I sure do!

Thanks for visiting and Have a Divine Day!
