Oh Inky... get out of there!

I thought I'd start my blog post with this photo of Inky in my home made light box.  I had it all set up on my kitchen table and had gone to get the cards I was going to photograph.  
This is what I found when I came back.  It has tissue paper on the sides and top so it's pretty delicate,
I talked her out with an open can of tuna. 
This was a really fun image to color with Copic markers, she's a digi stamp made by Dew Drop Craftz.  The patterned paper is by Cosmo Cricket called DeLovely, I pulled the colors from the paper for the colors in my focal image.  The card stock colors are both Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz & Black.  I used a Stampin' Up! border punch and the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder as well as Spellbinder's Oval and Scalloped Oval dies.  I even had a sketch I was trying to follow but my card looks nothing like it!

I just adore that image and the way you colored her! Inky is one cool cat, perfectly posing in the photo box waiting for his 15 minutes of fame :)

Congrats on your Kahwinkedink win! I like your lightbox, I am curious, do you shine lights on all 3 openings or only the top? Your pictures are always great! ~Diane
