Lilo's Fun Friday #31 - Miyoko is taking over!

Hellllloooo!!!

Interrupting our regulary scheduled LFF for a good reason...  It's the 2nd day of the Sister Stamps 1st Anniversary blog hop and Miyoko is taking over!  Who am I to say no to such a cutie pie?  Wasn't that an awesome first day?  All of the ladies did wonderful and amazing jobs with their projects and I am so lucky to be a part of this awesome team for such a very special celebration.

Now if you just left Amy's amazing blog then you are definitely on the right path.  If you just stopped here and would like to get in on the fun then head on over to the Sister Stamps blog and start from the beginning. 
So for today's Lilo's Fun Friday and 2nd creation of this awesome hop, say hello to the very sweet Miyoko.


If you have been following the Sister Stamps blog for the past few days you should have already met Miyoko.  As soon as I saw her I thought strawberries!  I pulled that strawberry paper from one of my favorite paper pads, Berry Sweet from K&Company.  I colored her outfit based on the dp behind her. Used a Copic marker to make the hearts on the top of her kimono and my trusty white gel pen on her obi.  Used light strokes of the same colors on the cupcake then I glittered the frosting and diamond glazed the cherry on top.  Oh and I finally got the hair ala-Amy to work for her.  (hehehe)  This is by far one of my favorite colored images.


Decided to make this into an easel card.  For the base of the card I used black cs and the reverse wonky Spellbinders and one of my favorite Asian embossing folders.  See that strawberry?  It's a C.C. Designs cutter.  I colored it with Copics and a white gel pen to make it look like a real berry.  Added white pigment ink and clear embossing powder then heat set to give it that nice frosted look.  Added a strip of green underneath, another strip of strawberry dp, and handwrote the sentiment, "You're so berry sweet!"


Mahalo for stopping by and remember, make sure you leave some love on everyone's blog.  We're all excited to hear what you all think. :)  Come back tomorrow for day three of this four day party all starting at the Sister Stamps blog culminating to the big release day on Sunday, July 1st.  For a full list of shops and online stores please head on over to the Sister Stamps blog and check out the list of vendors on their sidebar.


I hope you like today's share.  Now on your way to Nadine's blog.  She's waiting for you to come see what she's made for today.  Don't forget to leave her some love.   Happy hopping!


Have a berry wonderful day!!
Hugs,
Lilo
