FFF: Sketch By Mary

Friday, July 9, 2010

Yay! It's Friday again!

I've been on vacation all week and looooving it! The first half of the week I spent my mornings by the pool, catching some much needed rays (don't worry - I didn't toast myself!) and stamped the hot afternoons away. And now I'm in Maryland hanging out with friends for the weekend. Yes...I could do this every week! :)

And being that it's Friday, I have another Farm Fresh Friday challenge for you all! This week's challenge is my favorite kind - it's a sketch! And my sweet friend, Farmer Mary Giles, is the talent behind it. You can see the sketch and all the details on TGF blog.

I tried really hard not to color Irvin Sax in like I did last time, but I couldn't help it! He's just meant to wear a tux jacket and crisp white shirt! :) I printed Irvin on some Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it up with reinkers and an aquapainter brush. I decided to use up some of my old Basic Grey paper since I have a few new pads coming in the mail any day now, so I pulled a couple of papers from the Offbeat collection and paired them with chocolate and kraft cardstock. I LOVE kraft cardstock! It's like that favorite shirt in your wardrobe that can be dressed up or down! I decided to emphasis the criss cross element instead of playing it down and instead of a regular square behind the main circle panel, I used the Labels Four nestie. After I made the card, I decided to add the buttons for some interest. The sentiment is from a There She Goes set called Birdie Wishes.

Now it's your turn! We want to see what you create with Mary's sketch! Create your card and upload it to the TGF gallery for everyone to check out! You could be in with a chance to win a fabulous prize from The Greeting Farm!!

I have a special blog post for tomorrow, so ya'll come back now ya hear?! I hope everyone has a FABULOUS weekend!
