Over the Hump Day Candy with InStyle Stamps

Hello all! Sorry for the lack of posts recently. We are doing a little basement remodeling and it has been eating up all my crafting time.

Are you ready for Over the Hump Day? We're half way through the week AND half way through the month, so InStyle Stamps is celebrating with a little candy.

This month we are giving away 3 custom cd cases that contain 5 Journal Cynthia images printed on Neenah paper for you to color and a CD filled with InStyle Stamps Non-Anime Images. That's over 80 images, absolutely free...just for creating a project!!! How great is that!?! Be sure to pop on over to the InStyle Stamps blog for all the details on how you can be entered to win.

Now on to the project:

My sister has the most fabulous spa tub in the master bath of her new house. When I was visiting a few months ago, she let me indulge in a nice long soak. Aah. It was dreamy! But one thing was missing - nice relaxing music. (Val, don't scroll any farther if you are reading this - it'll spoil your stocking stuffer!) I'm trying to get a head start on my Christmas gifts, so, since I have a hubby with a gigantic music collection, I decided to make her a custom mix to listen to as she unwinds from a stressful day with the kiddos.

I printed Asia from Club Anime on Neenah cardstock, and colored her in with copic markers. I have to share that this was my first time using Neenah. I normally use Georgia Pacific, and let me tell you, coloring on the Neenah blows the GP out of the water! My ink went on so easily, the colors blended without having to go over and over everything like I do with the GP, and best of all, the markers didn't bleed at all! I'm hooked!

Beautiful work! I totally agree with the Neenah paper! I used to only use GP; and after my Copic certification class where we used Neenah I was HOOKED...and not ever going back to GP! :)
