YNS Darling Diva Blog Hop

When my good friend Wendy Ramlakhan asked me to do another guest designer stint for Your Next Stamp to help them release their new Darling Diva line of stamps, I jumped at the chance!   

The folks at Your Next Stamp are so very excited about their newest collection, that they decided to give them their very own Release and Blog Hop to introduce you to these new DARLING DIVA'S!!

Their talented illustrator, Macy Wong has outdone herself with this new collection and we think you will find Roxy, Summer, Amber and  Payton to be the perfect combination of chic and cute!  

Today you are in store for tons of inspiration from the  incredibly talented  Your Next Stamp designers as well as some serious eye candy with creations from a few coloring RockStars that have agreed to Guest Design for us during this very special of which is apparently me!  ;)

Here is my first project featuring Roxie.

I went with the "out of the box" technique to really showcase her pretty little face and long locks.  I colored her with copics and paired her with  some pretty papers from the Bo Bunny Isabella Collection 6x6 paper pad.  Here are the copics I used:

skin - E11, E21, E00, E000, R20,R30
eyes - B37, B37 and BV00 for eye shadow
lips - R24, R22, R20
hair - E47,E39, E35, E53
clothing - R85, R83, R81, C2,C1, C000

And here is my 2nd project featuring Amber

I colored my image with copics and paired her with some patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye "School Daze" 6x6 paper pad.  They were the perfect compliment to this image!  

skin - E11, E21,E00, E000, R20, R30
eyes - G46, G43
lips - R22, R20
hair - E34, YR23, YR21, YR20
