My 1000th post! Holy carp!

Well now. 1000 posts. ONE THOUSAND POSTS. That's a heck of a milestone. I'm thinking blog candy? It'll be a mystery blog candy - there will definitely be some crocheted mats, but that's all I'll tell ya! Leave a comment on this post, and I'll draw a winner January 20th.



Supplies: paper makeup fairy stamp; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Bic & spectrum noir markers; Bazzill card stock; Martha Stewart fine crystal glitter; American Crafts yellow glitter


I never enjoyed colouring human (oid?) images before, but these fairy stamps have me really loving it - glittering the wings & sun in two different colours, playing with their hair colours...I'm loving it. I have another to share on Tuesday that I'm so happy with, so expect to be seeing these girls more!

Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win blog candy :) And THANKS for sticking around!
xoxo,
Jessi

1000?!!! Oh my word. That is awesome, Jessi! Congrats!

Beautiful image and card. I see that you used Spectrum markers. I just picked up "a few" packages at Winners...they are great to work with and the price makes them even better!

Hope you are having a good weekend! Hugs.

Oooooo! The glitter you added makes this SO pretty! I'm pretty intimidated by the idea of coloring human(oid!)s, but it looks like you've definitely mastered it!

CONGRATULATIONS on 1000 blog posts! That is quite an accomplishment. Keep up all of the good work!!!

OMG...you've been wild on WWW for 1000 posts?! Lord help us all ;) Seriously though...congrats to you hun. You are talented, fun to read, a pleasure to know and a blessing to me. To think...without these bloggie things we've got, we'd never have met! Makes me sad to think it :(

I love the flawless coloring, detailed glittery areas and the image itself. Very girl power-ish :D

Your colouring here is gorgeous! I have yet to be brave enough to colour a person. I love the shading on her hair and all the gorgeous glitter!
