Orange and Turquoise ATC swap

This was for the Orange and Turquoise ATC swap on Twisted Chick
The stamp is Lizzie Anne The gold sheen is not my flash it's the paper. This is a very thick cardstock called iced gold. It really adds a nice iridescence. Make a wish is Papertrey And the grass is from Clear Art Stamps The star on the wand is A Muse

Let's Eat Out ATC Swap

I found this stamp at a scrapbook store rummage sale. It's PSX, but I know nothing else about it. I loved it as soon as I saw it, I think I paid $3 or $4 for it (sweet). I knew I wanted to use liquid applique for the popcorn immediately. The background popcorn is a whole other story. I thought a small popcorn stamp would be cute, but try to find a tiny kernel of popcorn stamp. This is actually a flower border out of one of the $1 bin clear stamp sets. I colored them in with white souffle pen. It took so much ink I ran out and end up painting some with acrylic paint. The butter on top is yellow glaze pen. It really looks like melted butter. I gave it some Spica pen glitter highlights and pooped it up with pop dots. I made 22 of these for a swap online and one I'm going to this week. I'm so glad to be done!

Sushi - A Muse

I made this for my shoe box swap group. I'm going to use it again for the A Muse addict swap this month, but no cute charm. (I don't have any more, but I got them from Stamping Bella.) The color of the card is more salmon than it looks in the picture. I colored it in with my new Copics from Hanna Stamps. I used the Basic set for the whole thing. I can't wait to get the spring in summer set (wish list).
