I love Wednesdays! And not just because it's hump day either. I love Wednesdays because it's the one day of the week that I totally devote my evenings to watching TV! Starting at 8pm, I'm hooked on watching The Middle, Modern Family and Cougar Town! Do you watch these?? They're hilarious! I love how they take the mickey out of what a 'normal family' is.
I borrowed my friend Kadie's stamp while we were at Miss Mary's house (a few months ago) and colored her up there. Then last week, while I was blog hopping looking for sketches and challenges, I saw the Lolita Boutique's #18 challenge for this week and thought that Miss Lilith would be perfect for it!
I loved Lil Lolita Lilith! She has that moody, Burtonesque look about her. Lil Lolita's challenge this week was to use the colors of purple, black and orange and the colors in Basic Grey's Eerie paper collection matched the challenge perfectly! (I'm loving the fact that I've been using up this 6x6 pad so far this season!)
The layout is this week's Sketch For You To Try (probably my absolute favorite challenge!). I did squash the elements together just a bit for this card, but they're all there, I promise you! :) If you click on the picture for a close up view, you might be able to see that I added some sparkle to her hair and to the skull clip. Love adding little details like that to the images!
Each layer was sponged with Black Soot Distress Ink and machine stitched to cardstock. I think I'm addicted to the zigzag stitch!! It add SO much to a card! I got that lace from my local scrapbook store and that flower is from a new jar collection by Prima Flowers (found at Michaels). The small scalloped border around the image was done with my FAVORITE decorative scissors - also from Michaels.
Hope you're having a great week so far!
