Emmy's Hat

     A second post for me today so that I can tell you about the new January challenge starting over on the Skeepski Designs Facebook site.  Our theme is always "Anything Goes" with a Sheepski Designs image.  Just go to the site, click on the "Photos" tab at the top, then on "Albums" and enter your project there.

     I used this sweet, perfect-for-spring image called "Emmy's Hat."  Isn't she beautiful?  And so much fun to color!


     I chose a neutral, golden-beige, monochromatic, color scheme and used my ProMarkers to color the image.  The dp is from a Graphic 45 paper pad, and I used beige CS for one of the panels.  I distressed the edges of each piece, including the matted sentiment.

     I dug through my stash of embellishments and chose the flowers and the large bow.  Although it's difficult to see in the photo, each flower petal has a bit of glitter on it for a touch of sparkle.

     Challenges:
Crafting from the Heart
Crafty Addicts
Creative Moments
Glitter n Sparkle
Inspiration Destination
Lemon Shortbread
Paper Girls
Through the Craft Room Door
Word Art Wednesday

     That's it for today.  I hope your week has gone well and that you have a fabulous weekend planned, even if it's going to be spent crafting and being creative instead of one filled with sports or other activities and travel.  Crafting's such a great way to relax and recharge.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
