Just Us Girls #218 Sketch Challenge!


Hello and happy Saturday!!  I'm telling you I'm delighted that it is Saturday!  Work at home today!! There is so much to do!  Hope you are making progress on your list and you have time to join us in this week's sketch challenge!  Please visit here to see it:  JUGS CHALLENGE.
 The newest Magnolia collection is in at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS . It has some real cuties!  This is the first one (of many!) that caught my eye.  She is #289 North Pole Tilda. I stamped her on watercolor paper and colored her with distress markers and a waterbrush.  I used Spellbinders' rectangle dies to cut her out and used a 1" stencil brush to add baja breeze to the space around her while she was still in the die.  Gives a nice border.

My snowflake die is from Papertrey Ink.  I sponged the snowflake with pool party and then covered it with GLITTER!  My papers are from Basic Grey..Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad.  My card base is a burgundy card stock.
I'm not crazy about my photographs so I apologize for the poor lighting (or whatever it was that caused the problem!)  The colors are less red and more toward maroon IRL!
Anyway, won't you join us in the challenge this week for this sketch!  There are so many possibilities!  We are also working on our next guest DT member!
Thanks for visiting!! Have a great day and weekend!
