A New Challenge at Tiddly Inks: Paint It Up!

It's Tuesday and that's a really good thing for a couple of reasons.  One, it's not Monday, and two, there's a new challenge underway at Tiddly Inks!  This week's theme is Paint It Up.  Add a painted element to your card and you can join the fun!

I painted the grunge board crow black using acrylic paint and gave him a devious red gem eye for added appeal.  Not sure what he's thinking as he spies on our amorous couple, but you can be certain he's up to no good.

Speaking of amorous couples, the name of this image is Vamp Me and it is available in the Tiddly Inks Shop.   I colored it with my handy dandy Copics, but failed to log the colors.  I'm so sorry :(

I'm going to keep this post short, but I'm not signing off until I urge you to head over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and leave some love for my ridiculously talented Tiddly Sistahs!  The samples they have created are stunning and are just what the doctor ordered to get your creative blood pumpin'.  Also, while you're tripping around Blogland, stop by Christy's blog where you're sure to find something new and fabulous.  She never disappoints!

Okay, that's it for me!  I'm out!  Until next time, stay crafty ;D
