I'm a Guest Designer for Inky Antics!

Happy Sunday friends!  I have some exciting news to share today.  In July I got an email from Jackie at Inky Antics asking me if I would like to be their guest designer for September.  Well of course I had to think about it ... for a split second lol!  Inky Antics stamps were some of the very first images I ever colored.  They're the images I learned to color with pencils & gamsol!  And I even got to meet Jackie last month at the stamping convention in Cincinnati.  She's such a sweetie!  I have tons of their cute & whimsical stamps and I always enjoy coloring them.  So anyway, I made some cards for Jackie and she will be sharing them throughout the month over on the Inky Antics Blog.  


So here is the first card featured on their blog.  This cute bear is from the 11081MC Aviator Benton clear set.  He's colored with copics and colored pencils.  I cut out and popped up the airplane propellers but it doesn't really show on the photo.  There's Glossy Accents on Benton's goggles, nose, and the airplane tires.  I cut out the clouds with the My Favorite Things cloud die and stamped the sentiment on the different clouds.  That's another great thing about Inky Antics clear sets - they always come with the most fabulous sentiments!  I thought he would look perfect on this BoBunny paper.  I added some twine and a bright orange button.  I'll be sending this little cutie to my grandson and I'm pretty sure he's going to love it!


So here's a picture of the Aviator Benton clear set - cute, huh?  If you would like a chance to win this adorable set, then head over to the Inky Antics Blog to find out how to enter.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Anita
