TGIF my friends!
I'm enjoying a nice day off so you won't hear any complaints from me. :)
Yesterday I set myself a little personal challenge to get my yet-to-be inked up TGF stamps out and put to use. As I was flipping through my binders I was a bit shocked that there were like 5 or 6 that I hadn't even used yet! And with a new release coming up next week I didn't want to fall even more behind because even though I may be a 'collector' I want to play with them too. ;)
I skipped (with my high speed I can skip, hop and jump now... LOL) on over to the Farm Fresh challenge blog for some inspiration and found a sketch by Rachel that was right up my alley. At first I was having a hard time choosing a stamp but when I spotted the Sunshine Broadcast paper pad on my desk it was a no-brainer that Cheeky Beach was the perfect fit for this card. Talk about a match made in heaven... the papers have a cool desaturated color palette that kinda reminds me of an old post card from Hawaii and that is totally the world I saw this little wahine living in. So I colored her up in similar tones and followed the sketch pretty faithfully from there. Sure I made one of the horizontal strips much thinner than the other and added a few flowers here and there but following that layout made this one nice and quick!
One down... only five or so more to go... LOL!
