Lil' Inker Designs January New Release--{Day 4}



Welcome to Day 4 of the Lil' Inker Designs January New Release!  You should have arrived from Laura Pryor's blog to start today's blog hop!  Everything you have seen here on my blog and my fellow DT blogs is now AVAILABLE in the Lil' Inker Store!  ***You must come back tomorrow though for one more day of goodies as we unveil some sweet Valentine items!***

Today I am sharing another image from 2 Cute Ink:  Sweet Bee.  This sweet little set has some extras in there like some flowers/grass and cute tiny hearts!  Pair all these with three new sentiments.....it's a match made in heaven!  Take a look at my card:



I colored my Sweet Bee in with various Copic markers and then layered my image over yellow pattern paper from Echo Park.  I decided that I enjoy picking parts of my image to pop up for a little dimension.  Here I've done this with the bow and the heart.  All my layers were machine stitched.....now I could have left it "alone" but it just screamed to have stitches!  I'm lovin' my Janome Sew Mini....that's for sure!  My sentiment is one that is included in this set and was heat embossed with white filigree embossing powder on the double ended banner die to give it a little extra pop!  I've used the current CPS sketch (#251) for this except I changed up the half circles.



Well friends, that's it for today but remember stay tuned for tomorrow's post for one more "cute" day!  I can't wait to show you what the BONUS goodies are!  Your next stop is my good friend Jen Carter......she creates some of the most creative things!
