TGF Birthday Blog Hop

Happy 2nd Birthday TGF!  When I came across The Greeting Farm in early 2009, it was love at first sight ~ I was hooked and TGF became one of my absolute favorite stamp companies.  I love the fact that not only do I enjoy using these stamps, but my kids do too ~ what more could you ask for?   Since I took part in their first Birthday Hop, I knew I had to join in this one as well.
I have so many TGF stamps to choose from and wasn't sure which direction I wanted to go, but when I came across Ebony I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I grabbed a notebook from my "things to alter" cabinet and went to work.  

After adhering the designer paper to the notebook I put a piece of tulle over and love how it looks!  I colored Ebony with copics, paper pieced her skirt and added Crystal Effects to it as well as her headband.  I finished her off with some stickles for glittery eye shadow and then added some to the skull on her top as well.  
On the sentiment I added stickles to each of the letters.

I am really happy with how this turned out and so is my daughter since she has already claimed it to use for school.  Now I guess I better get started on another one for my other daughter.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit, to continue on the hop, please go back to the TGF blog to see where your next stop is.


Have a wonderful day!

Hey Jodi! I just wanted to pop back in regarding the Inkadinkadoo sentiment I used on my card. Our Michaels carries only one of them in acrylic, but I purchased them here at Overstock. Thought I'd pass on the info as they are so cute and versatile!! HUGS!

cheribella said...

Very very clever with the tulle. Any girl would love it but would it cause too many fights? or create orders? Could be worth finding out.

scrapn_momof2 said...

Super cute. I can see why your daughter snatched it up. I'm sure mine would have too. :)
