Simply Sweet Sundae!

 Hello Sassy Fans! I hope your Monday is off to a good start! Thanks so much to all of you for hopping around with us for the new release this weekend! You guy's are a great group of followers!! 

For today's inspiration I have used...

 ... 'Sundae Service'. Don't you just love this stamp!! So much fun to color and it just so happens I was able to nab the perfect stack of papers( BoBunny's Sweet Tooth) for her. I did follow the sketch over at CLP for this one and I really love how it turned out.

Here's a closer view. I did something a little different(for me) and added some deeper colors using some Prismacolor pencils and I really love the effect...I'm hooked!! I know people have been doing this for a while and our own Maria has given us a little tutorial before, but it took me a while to get on the band wagon. Anyway, here's a pic of my copics...

... yep, I used all of those in some way or another,lol
and the pencils...

930(magenta), 994(process red), 995(mulberry)
I actually used these to change the color of her skirt to what you now see

1074(French grey), 1083(putty beige)
for shading around and under her

947(dark umber)-hair, 905(aquamarine)-leg warmers 

Well, that's all for me today, but remember to stop by later to see what beautiful creation Alina has to share with you.
Have a great day!


  1. Absolutely lovely, beautiful colouring !!

    hugs Astrid xx

  2. Fabulous colouring and love how you used the Prismas to enhance the colours! Sheila:)X

  3. Those papers work beautifully with your image & I love your placing of the paper with the cake just in that position - almost as if she has one eye on it. Love your shading of her hair. I've not really experimented with this technique either so in time - pretty impressive this.
