Alicia Bel inspiration time!

(Please scroll down for my La-La Land Crafts DT post!)


Today the Alicia Bel design team is giving you some inspiration from the fabulous goodies available in the store.  I decided to use this gorgeous girl Frog Kisser...



Isn't she beautiful?  And this is the first time I've attempted a dark skin tone using Copic E31, E33 and E35.  I'm going to try an Asian/Chinese skin tone soon!  I also added Glamour Dust to her tiara although you can't see it very well in the photo - it's blinging!  I popped the white frame on foam pads for depth to frame her.

I used Lili of the Valley Shabby Shack paper, a Memory Box flourish die, Whiff of Joy speech bubble die and La-La Land Crafts Lotus Flower die, topped off with a Doodlebug glittered brad.

Check out some more inspiration over at the blog here - you won't be disappointed!  That really is it from me today - honestly!
