Anyone for Lemonade?

Good morning! Time for another Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge! This week, our fantabulous hostess is the one and only Sharon Caudle, who has called her challenge "Lemonade Stand". She's asking to see the colour YELLOW on your creation...so bright and cheery for this time of year!

This week, I've inked up "Magical Friends" from the May release. I pulled out this pretty paper from K&Company Wild Raspberry...I love the soft, buttery yellows in this paper. The gorgeous silk ribbon is May Arts, available at Lacey's store Stamp and Create. The bow was made with a tool I would be lost without...the Bow Easy. Love that little gadget! The sentiment is a clear stamp I've had kicking around for a while, but since I got rid of the packaging I'm not really sure of the company. (I found it in a dollar bin at Michael's one time, if that helps!!)




After colouring the image with my Copic markers, I added Star Dust Stickles to the wings, horn and tag. (I was able to find more on my trip to London last weekend!) I also gave the little unicorn a good coat of Smooch Illuminate.





We'd love to have you play along with us this week. You could be the winner of a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp...just make sure to use a W&W image (just click that link to find out where to buy them!) on your creation to be eligible. You can link up your project on the W&W blog here. You'll also find some beautiful projects by the rest of the Divas to get your mojo going!


Don't forget that we have our June release next week! Wags 'n Whiskers is introducing a brand new artist...trust me stampers, these new images are adorable! These new June images will only be available for purchase as digis!! Previews will begin next Wednesday followed by a BLOG HOP on Friday June 25th, the official release day! So mark your calendars now! Oh, and check out this post to see how you could win a great prize!!


Blessings!

Melanie

Super excellent colouring Melanie. I can only aspire to your greatness :D I'm thinking that greeting stamp may be Studio G ... maybe?

This is just too cute for words, Melanie! I LOVE how you have coloured her hair...you are such a sensational colourer-er-er (is that even a word,lol)! This image is adorable and I love the papers you picked they are perfection! I have a bow EZ but can’t seem to figure it out! I just find I end up in a tangle...all thumbs...but you bow looks so scrumptious!
