The Nouveau Girls hop!

Hello! (Please scroll down for my Sweet November preview candy... thanks!)

Welcome one and all to the Some Odd Girl Nouveau Girls Release Hop! There has been a lot of excitement building up to this event and not only do we have this fabulous new line to share with you, we also have some other fun, new things too! So if you've made it here from Christina's blog then you are right on track... if not then be sure to head on over to the SOG blog to start at the beginning. :)


Along the way you'll see plenty of fantastic projects by the Odd Girls... we have been having SO much fun with this new line and are just bursting at the seams to share! We're bringing you 3 clear stamp set designs that we hope will knock your socks off and that you'll love for all sorts of projects.


Turn of the century Art Nouveau has long been one of my most favorite art styles ever... especially the poster art that was made popular during that period in history. So when Kristy sneaked that she was going to add some Nouveau style girls to the SOG line all those months ago, I was totally psyched!
My card today features the Believe Nouveau Girl along with the flowers and leaves that also come with her on the small set. Isn't she enchanting? I love the dreamy look on her face and those flowing robes are so much fun to color! I colored up the extra poppy stamps to match the vines in the pattern paper and used them along with the leaves and smaller flowers to embellish the rest of the card.


Ok, so here's the hop order just in case you ever get lost along the way...
