Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges #57 - Lolita



I am feeling a little grim and grumpy and a tad gloomy too. It's raining today and this image just suited my mood. The Tim Holtz Muse Token reads "Courageous" and I think anyone who has had their heart broken has shown a courage and a strength beyond what should be expected of mere mortals. I dedicate this last Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge to all those who bear the scars of love lost and in particular to a good friend of mine.

It is a sad day anyway since we have to say good-bye to the Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge, but fear not! TPS stamps will continue to delight us with their Lads and Lolitas and Pinkettes in digital form, hopefully for a long time to come! Challenge #57 is to use a Lolita. Any Lolita. So of course, it MUST be a Tickled Pink Stamps image in order for you to play along.

My card features Lil Valentine Lolita Lilith. She is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers. The sketch is from Seems A Little Sketchy (#7). Flowers, lace, and pearls are from my stash. Papers are a new 6x6 pad I bought last week called Lost and Found - Market Street. I also got to use my new Picot Edge Circle Nesties, and I LOVE the look!

Please visit the TPS blog to see what the beautifully talented {PINK} ladies have designed for you for this last challenge! ANd we hope you'll join us so that the challenge can go out with a bang.

I hope you have a good day. And as for me, I'll allow myself one melancholy day. That is until my small man wakes up and makes my heart smile! There's nothing like that love to chase away the gloomy grays. :)

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, R81, R85, RV34, W4, W6, W8, W10) and Prismacolor Art Markers (143, 151, 198).

Sorry your in a blue mood but it certainly doesn't show in this beautiful creation. Love it. Like you, I'm really digging your new Nesties and you know I have a weakness for Kraft cardstock. You're certainly going out with a bang!
