TSG151: Ribbon Challenge

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Good morning!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I think I've finally got over my jetlag. I took a nap Saturday afternoon and took it easy on Sunday. I don't think the long hours helped, but I'm glad to be back on my regular routine, that's for sure!

One thing I did do on Sunday was make a card for this week's There She Goes challenge. Corinna McGregor is our Trendsetter of the week and she has issued a ribbon challenge!

I finally got my hands on the Fairy Good Day set the other week, so I was itching to color this set in!

TSG is also sponsoring Jen's Sketch For You To Try Challenge this month, so of course, I had to use it this week! (And probably next week too!)

I have used these MME and Crate papers sparingly since I bought them, but at some point, you just have to let them go, right?? I thought they looked good together and I was trying to avoid going with a lot of pink - which typically would have been my first choice!

Do you notice anything different about my card?? No sewing!! Not a lick of stitching anywhere! Shocking, I know. And it was EXTREMELY HARD to resist getting my sewing machine out! But I managed to put the card together, put it on my card shelf and actually like it! :) (That's a big step for me!) As always, I colored my the fairy with my SU and Distress Ink reinkers and an aquapainter brush. I used Pool Party and a tiny bit of Tempting Turquoise on her dress and layered Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo for her hair. SU's Creamy Caramel was used for her skin and Pretty In Pink for her cheeks. The flowers and belt were colored with Rich Razzleberry and Regal Rose.
