"Nucking Futs" is a new addition to Rhea's Twisted Side
sentiments at C. C. Designs.

I've added enough space in the sentiment to break it apart if you like.
The adorable Squirrels are from Roberto at C.C. Designs.
I know my twisted humor isn't for everyone and is not meant to offend!  It's just my warped sense of humor coming out of hiding.

Pinky Doll Art

Happy Monday Morning! I couldn't sleep and was up way too early this morning...ugh!  I decided to try out P Pinky Dolls Digital Images.   I'm not really into gothic but these little babies are super adorable and fun to color.   I think they would also be amazing as steampunk.

Hahahahahaha...I totally messed up her hair but that's ok.  I still wanted to share.  It's ok not to be perfect right :)  

The background is airbrushed with the same colors I used in her dress and hair.  I did add C7 and B99.  The BV29, I used the brush end of the marker in the air brush canister to get the speckles.  
Love this look!!  I think I will have to color up another one of these adorable little girls.

Here is the Color Palette....

Casey - Little Darlings Rubber Stamps

Hello, I hope you are having an enjoyable weekend!  
Today's inspiration is a for Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.  So excited about the NEW release this month, "Beautiful Gorgeous 2014" Collection by Saturated Canary.

This design is an A2 size with a lot of distressing and texturing. 
I used my scissors to rough up all of the edges of the papers.  Before I inked the edges with Distress ink, I used a water brush filled with 70% alcohol and a warm gray as well as a dark green Copic Markers.  I water colored here and there on the background papers.  When it was dry, using 99% alcohol and a piece of burlap I then textured these areas.  Next step was to ink edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Sprinkle with Shabby White Embossing Enamel and start layering all the papers.
To keep the vintage feel metal embellies were a must with ivory accents.  The tiny little watch parts are my favorite metal embellishments of all time!  There is even a little glass glitter here and there.
 The cheese cloth added the final texture I needed, it is even airbrushed with a smudge of warm gray.

All in all I I was very happy to take everything I would normally put into an altered cigar box and into a card design.  

Of course, I didn't forget the Color Palette :)
