FFF Challenge and a Twinkle Tot!

Friday, October 30, 2009

Good Morning again!

(Please scroll down for the TSG Penguin Love Blog Hop post!)

Is everyone glad it's Friday?!? I know I am after this crazy busy week! I just counted the cards I've posted and there are 14 of them! Fourteen?! And I have two more to show you this weekend! There were A LOT of late nights this week, that's for sure! :)

But never mind my ramblings, it's Friday and that means another Farm Fresh Friday challenge for you all! This week the uber talented Gardener Mercy Kerin has a sketch for us and it's such a fun one!

I saved Izzy to color up last this week because my initial thought was that she wasn't going to be my favorite Twinkle Tot, but boy was I soooo wrong! The stripes in her jacket, her curly hair and the awesome hat are such fun to color! Izzy looks like she's spending the day at the beach, so I 'dressed' her in a springy outfit with light colors. I used SU's Morning Marigold and Distress Inks 'Antique Linen and Tea Dye' on her jacket, with SU's Old Olive for her dress.

I really do enjoy coloring up faces. Especially ones with rosy cheeks and big eyes like Izzys! If you click the image above for a closer look, you can see the glossy accents I applied over her eyes to give them a more doey look. While coloring her face with Creamy Caramel, I quickly add some Pretty in Pink to her cheeks and blend it all in by wiping the brush over the whole face.
You know you want to see what the other Gardeners and Farmers have done with Mercy's sketch, so go check 'em out!


Remember, Jess changed up the rules and for every 30 FFF entries there will be a prize given away!! So if there are 60 entries, then there will be two prizes!! A sweet deal for sure! So get busy ladies!
Before you go, make sure you all check out all the contests The Greeting Farm has going on this week! There's a kids one, and a My House one and today's FFF. You have until 7pm CST this Sunday night to get your entries in! Winners will be announced during our release party/VSN! We've done it with Club Anya, you've asked for another one, and so this time we're doing a TGF Virtual Stamping Night! Meet us in the PCP Chat Group from 7PM CST to 9PM CST on Sunday, November 1st!
