Bliss

It's another challenge at Some Odd Girl and the theme for March is a sketch! Be sure to head on over to the SOG Challenge blog to see the sketch and all the other fabulous inspiration from the design team. Here's my project for the challenge...


I used Bliss for the image from Some Odd Girls, one of the Nouveau Girls. The sentiment stamp is from Whimsy and the frame around it is a chippie accent from Make it Crafty. I've taken this sketch and turned it upside down then enlarged the center portion which is represented by the black gate. The gate was cut in Tim Holtz Grungeboard on the Cricut cutter and is from the Ornamental Iron 2 cartridge.


I colored her in autumn colors for two reasons... one, I've only seen her colored in spring or bright colors so it was a fun experiment; and two, the current challenge at Make it Colourful is autumn colors so I grabbed that for my inspriation. For a final touch I "sprinkled" some brown and orange gems on two of the corners.


Hope youve enjoyed this project for today and thanks for stoppig by! :D
