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!
