Fabulous Inky Friday at Tiddly Inks

TGIF! Really! Not that the weekend is gonna be all that great either but... Obviously I'm still in a bit of a funk. Sorry, guys. I did manage a card though, for my Sweetie who does so much for me, even when I'm a crab cake. LOL The lovely image is Will You? from Tiddly Inks Victorian Gothic/Steampunk Release. Sooo romantic, no? I've colored them up with Copics in shades of brown for a vintage feel (except for the red hair, but I just HAD to make her red).

My original plan was to use one of the ADORABLE NEW SUGAR AND SPICE GIRLS but this sentiment was very timely this week so those cuties will be for another day. OOhh, I'm getting sort of misty here. Lotsa love goin' around.

The gorgeous papers are from DCWV Tattered Time stack and Tim Holtz Lost and Found. The mats are cut with Nesties Labels Seventeen and popped for dimension. The pearls are Recollections. Now pop on over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog to see Some fab inspiration by our Tiddly fans and more of the Tiddly Inkers. If you're featured, you may grab bragging rights and a fab badge for your blog. Also, our current Acrylic Challenge is still going on and the projects there are AMAZING. And if you'd like to see a whle bunch of inspiration for the fab Sugar 'n Spice gals take a look at Christy's blog HERE. I'm also adding this to the Whimsical Wednesdays Anything Goes Challenge, the Delightful Pearls and Swirls Challenge and the For Fun Warmth Challenge. That's all for now.


  1. BEAUTIFUL card Donna... and of course her hair had to be red...I love the music paper in the background... I see so many of the dies that are colored in like you did.. how are you guys doing that??? Very pretty effect doing it that way... I am sorry to hear you are still having a hard time..

  4. Dear Donna,
    Sorry you are in a funk...
    But your uber-fabby steampunk
    Is the uber-best, me thinks,
    Now off to color my Tiddly Inks!

    Ugh, that is so bad. A poet I ain't! Seriously, I hope you are doing better soon. If it helps, you have me hooked on steampunk, you enabler you. I especially like the Victorian side of it so I think I can convert pretty easily!
