Exciting News!!

Hi guys!! I am so excited to share today's post, so get ready for lot's of exclamation points =)
I've been asked by Teresa of Crafts and Me to join her DT!!! Pinch me, I'm dreaming!!!  I used Forever Rose by the artist Hannah Lynn for my Prisma coloring video and have been hooked ever since! I can literally be lost for chunks of time looking at all of the amazing products she carries including rubber and digi's.  Besides the store there is also the store blog and the Challenge blog. There is a new challenge every Wednesday so we have lot's of places to hang out together!
So today I have Hannah Lynn's digi Priscilla:

I created my background papers after seeing this tutorial by Vix. I had tried this technique with Tim Holtz Distress Inks before but never with my copics. Oh my gosh! I love it and I think I will be using this from now on!!  I created the moon by simply cutting a Circle nestie shape and then airbrushing it with copics C1, BV23 and Y11.
Here is a close up of Priscilla:
Here's the copic colors I used:

Be sure to check out all of my fellow DT's blogs. You will be amazed at the talent of these ladies!! The DT's broken down into two teams, The Rockin' Rubber Team and the Digital Diva's.  And btw.. those are my names, not Teresa's so don't blame her for my goofiness =)
Thanks for coming by!
