ISSC01 - An iSpy Sketches First :D



Hi Everyone! I'm excited to announce that the very first iSpy Sketches challenge ISSC01 is now up over at the iSpy Blog and am equally excited to announce that I actually made a card for it. *grins* This marks the first card that I have made since June of last year!



So try not to critique it too much as I did fudge up the image quite a bit. The image is one of the 4 pixies that come in "The Pixies" set by Stamping Bella. This sweet little pixie's hair was supposed to be blond and her arms aren't really supposed to have red smudges in them, but that's what you get when you put everything away for 8 months and let yourself get rusty ;)

Thanks for joining me today and pop on by the iSpy Sketches Blog to see what the other Secret Agents were inspired to make and who inspired them this week :D  

***On a side note, if you are interested in purchasing any of my cards, I will be listing some (including this one) in my Card Shoppe in the next few days :D

Your kidding me right Kim! Lol. This is gorgeous and there isn't a mistake in sight. So happy here on the eastern side of Canada to see you back to creating. Your the one of the best card makers I know and no one can colour like you do. Wow, you still got it baby and never under estimate the skill of a master. Big Hugs.

OMG! and baby you have made a STUNNING card without using those markers in all these months. She is going to push me to break them Tombows out, since I took your class! :)

So glad you're back! As far as "fudging" on your card, I'd be hard-pressed to find anything wrong and yet, if I did it would comfort me greatly to know someone with your talent can mess up a bit. This little pixie is adorable!! I love your work, Kim. So happy for you:) Creating is great fun!

Kim, I don't know why you put your "things" away, but I'm sure glad you took them back out. You do very nice work and your pixie looks great to me. I'm looking forward to this challenge to see some fresh (to me) talent.

Beautiful, deep coloring! So glad you are back in the game and you picked me! Even though my card missed the launch, it's there now!

Crafty Cath said...

I've so missed seeing your creations! I don't see any of the imperfections you listed...I think she is stunning! So glad you are coloring again.

You are so funny! This card is beautiful!! So talented!

Mary said...

How nice to see you again. I've missed you and your beautiful creations.

Jodi R. said...

Are you kidding me? You've always been one of my FAVORITES and even during your absence I would visit your gallery on SCS as a reminder of how great you work is. Nothing has changed. Even you "rustyness" produces wonderful cards. So glad you are back. You have been missed!

Vickie Z said...

It's a fabulous card... impeccable coloring!! Thrilled you're creating again!!

A stunning card for your welcome back, I have missed your gorgeous cards. This image is adorable and coloured to perfection. Love the DP you used.

Mona L. Pendleton said...

Adorable card Kim! Love the way you colored that sweet image! Congrats on your new challenge and thanks for the inspiration :)

*sigh* I love this. I'd like to fool myself into believing that it's the Tombow markers that make your cards so fabulous... but I know it's YOU. :-) I'll probably still buy some though... ;-)
