Totally Moth Fab...

Have you missed me?!  I have been locked in my creative dungeon today, so I can actually share something new ;) 


Can I just say, I love Torrente stamp images?  So demented looking... fiendish, really.  LOVE THEM.  I know, I know... if you've been to my "normal" blog, you are probably wondering how I can create a whimsical little snowman card one day, and say that I'm in love with Torrente images the next.  Well, that's just how I roll.  Yes... I AM the same person... ;)


Stamps:  Moth Fab (Torrente), sentiment (The Angel Company - TAC)
Paper:  Penelope (orange) & basic black cardstocks (TAC), misc. white & green cardstocks
Ink  Palette Noir
Other:  Copic markers, Crystal Lacquer, MS spider web punches, misc. ribbon


I took a ton of pictures of this one... I was trying to show my Copic coloring.  I've got a handful of them, and am still a bit clumsy with markers.

I used Crystal Lacquer on Moth Fab's eyes, bodice, boots, and the heart on her purse.  It adds just a bit o' shine.


A lot of Torrente's images are freakin' TALL!  This forces one to step outside of the typical A2 sized card... me likey :)

I think I did pretty good on coloring this one... and I like how I added all of those little orange dots everywhere.  They kinda go along with Torrente's style of drawing.


She really does look better in person... and the bow is yummi-liscious... you'll just have to trust me :)

I'm thinking the inside of the card should read:  "No, really.... go".  I got that from Junkmail Greetings... LOVE IT.

What do you think?

I likey this stamp.
I don't think snowman one day creepy the next is so strange. At least you separate it, mine all goes into one place.
