Are you ready for some more new releases? Today I get to show off one of the newest Nouveau Girls from Some Odd Girl!! To start with, we're showing off Dancer! This divine girl will be available in Clear Rubber stamp and she was a beaut to color - so much fun!

(This is my second post for today so you can scroll down or click HERE for my first.)

My project uses Dancer by Some Odd Girl and in the background is Bridge Scene by Just Inklined. I used papers from My Minds Eye and grabbed the color scheme from it. I was even able to use a few colors that were burried at the bottom of the stash. LOL For her dress, I used RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99 with a little N2 and N4 for shading.

I colored the background quickly to give a nice contrast between the two images. I was hoping for a watercolored look but not sure if it worked out or not. Even a distressed ink look would have been a good aim but I still have some practice to do. LOL Either way, I like the contrast between the well blended Dancer and background.

On the journal page I also used some accessory stamps that come with the Dancer. The two circle music note symbols and the sentiment made nice embellishments. The sentiment was stamped then cut out using the Notable 2 die from Whimsy then placed behind the N2 Simple Frame chippie from Make it Crafty.

Thanks for stopping by again today and don't forget to head on over to the Some Odd Girl blog for more inspiration and even prizes to be won!
