I tried to use this week's FFF Challenge from the TGF blog and an upcoming birthday. This week's TGF FFF Challenge is to make my own background. I decided to use inks--shades of blue and aqua-- with the Waves embossing folder as my background and then used my colored pencils to color the Mermaid Anya and her sea friends which are from Stamp It Up collection. Matted the background paper with shades of plain blue light card stock and finally matted those onto a white cardstock. The sentiment is a generic one I think from Michael's Store and to give a finishing touch I used white pearls in her hair. And below is also a photo of the inside of the card minus the sentiment I used for the personalizing it for birthday girl we were giving it to. So, all for today..... Thank you for stopping in to view my latest creation. I hope you have a happy, scrappy day!
