Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek | Day 2


We're getting ready for another fabulous release at Taylored Expressions and Taylor is giving away a fun TE prize too - so be sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post for all the details, you don't want to miss a thing!

Today I have a new Moka for you - Meet Cherie!  Nancy McKinney has illustrated another fabulous Moka to add to your collection.

She's just too sweet!  I love her little heart barrette and her fun shoes!  I started by stamping her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Choice Snow White cardstock and then I colored her with Copic markers.  I added some Leafy Branches underneath the main image and accented them with pink rhinestones.  The patterned papers are Yours Truly from Echo Park.


I cut the sentiment down to size and snipped the ends of the cardstock to make a flag and then tucked it through the Hearts a Plenty Die.

Taylor and Nancy McKinney have been working on a fabulous resource for you that you are going to flip for!  And it's FREE!! TE is offering a Moka Hair Color Chart, colored by the Copic QUEEN, Jen Shults. Plus, there will be Copic Hair Color kits for purchase at the TE Store making it easy to purchase the colors you need.

So how do you get the Moka Hair Color Chart? You can find it HERE at the TE Store! It includes Jen's color inspiration, suggested Copic combinations, and a blank sheet for you to practice and record your own favorite hair color combinations. The Hair Color Copic kits will be available for purchase with our new release items on Thursday, January 5th at 8am PST.
