Cherry Cheeky + Vintage Grunge = FFF Challenge

Friday, February 12, 2010

Good Morning! TGIF!

I am sooo looking forward to this weekend and hopefully getting to sleep in a little bit. :) Usually Syd wakes up around 7am, so either I convince her to snuggle in bed with me or she turns on the TV and watches Sponge Bob for a little bit. It allows me to wake up on my own terms instead of a busy 4 year old! ;)

Anywho! Enough about tomorrow; Today is Friday and that means another Farm Fresh Friday challenge from The Greeting Farm!! And this one is going to get your creativity going for sure! Our sweet Farmer, Randi Wall, has challenged us all to create a "Vintage Grunge" card or project! My style is pretty geometrical and clean lined, but I really love distressing cards because it's the complete opposite of my style and it allows me to push my own boundaries just that little bit further.


I'm soooooo sorry to tease you AGAIN with another Cheeky Wild Sprout, but you'll see when you get yours, you CAN'T HELP but use them all the time!! They're just sooo much fun to color and use and I am just loving Glamour WS's sophisticated hairdo! Marilynn, you've got nothing on this Sproutlet!! :)

Glamour girl was colored with reinkers and an aquapainter brush, and I added some Ranger Glossy Accents to her eyes to make them shiny. I also drew in those fishnet stockings with a Micron pen for some added detail.

To me, "vintage grunge" means old or distressed papers and very girly things like flowers, sparkle and deep, rich colors. So I used these yummy patterned papers I found at Michaels, lots of rhinestones and some Prima flowers, which I added to Stickles to the edges of. The layout is from last week's Friday Sketchers #88 layout.

You'll definitely want to check out what the Farmer's and Critter Crew have created for this challenge because I have a feeling you'll see a few more Cheeky Wild Sprouts along the way! :D

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a FABULOUS Valentines Day!! May you be loved and spoiled! *mwah*

Don't forget: Sunday evening, starting at 8pm CST on TGF blog, TGF is having a blog hop to celebrate the release of these new CHA Cheeky Wild Sprouts!! You're going to see some AMAZING stuff from the current Farmers, Team Anya, the Critter Crew and TGF Alumni!!!
