It's Not All Black and White

The Three Amigos

Except, well, they're not Mexican/Spanish. But three friends just doesn't have the same ring to it, does it?

I made some time today to play with yesterday's Splitcoast sketch challenge. Can you believe it's number 200!?! I thought the little squares would work well with this set, Giving Thanks from Storage Units, Ink. They have the cutest stamps, like this little feathered dog. It just makes me smile.

After stamping with Palette's noir black ink, I colored all the images with Copic markers. I ran a dark brown marker around the edges of the squares before layering them on some Core'dinations card stock. The die cut in the corner is from the Cuttlebug Vintage Dies set, with a little close to cocoa ink sponged on top.

What's In It?
Stamps: Giving Thanks (SU Ink)
Paper: white (Papertrey Ink); quicksand, iced cocoa, satin rose (Core'dinations); Wanted (Cosmo Cricket); vanilla (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: noir black (Palette); close to cocoa (SU!)
Accessories: ribbon (American Crafts); pewter hardware (SU!); vintage dies (Cuttlebug); square nestabilities (Spellbinders); dimensionals

And while you're here, I wanted to tell you about a couple of good blog candies I've come across lately. Maybe you have time to check them out. The first is from Michelle with a whole goodie package from her store Paper Addictions. Secondly, you can try for some new product from the Shimmerz blog. I already love the existing product, so I can't wait to see what they have in store next.
