New Prima Paper!!!!!

I had about 25- 30 minutes to actually make a card today. Fortunately, I had already colored this cute little Tilda image last night prior to my oldest daughter getting sick (she still is not up to par but doing better this evening) so all I had left to do was quickly layer some of the beautiful new Harmony paper by Prima I got from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. I had seen the Prima paper packs before and thought they looked nice but my attitude was I had plenty of paper already. What I didn't know besides getting the beautiful double-sided 12 x 12 papers you, also, receive a yard of gorgeous coordinating ribbon (and I'm not talking you run-of-the-mill grosgrain or satin) and a sample of Prima flowers. Totally awesome! So, I stamped Tilda on Crycogen White shimmer CS using Memento Rich Cocoa ink. This is my new favorite line of inks to use with Copic markers. They leave a nice rich image and dry very quickly. So far I have experienced no smearing. After coloring the image with Copic markers and "grounding" the little gal with a brown Staedtler Fineliner pen, I matted her on a brown piece of floral paper and then on Brocade Blue CS. The little acrylic bird is by Prima and I stamped the back of it with Canvas BG stamp in Butterscotch Dauber by Ranger. The ribbon tied through the button holes is May Arts and the little photo corner is from the Pewter Hardware Collection by WRMK. The sentiment is from one of the 3 new Inkadinkado lines (be sure to see this post regarding information on the Inka contest.) Well, I have my monthly scrapbook club workshop to attend in the morning so I had better call it an early evening. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! It's ALWAYS a Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
