My Groovy Girlfriend


Whoa... guess I was in the need for a huge 'pink fix'!!  This one should hold me awhile!  hahahaha!  A very odd combination, don't you think.  But, I've concluded I like it now although I wasn't sure while I was making it.  Something a little different!!

 I just wanted to make a girlfriend card and also use my Birds Galore stamp set from Inkadinkado.  So I thought I'd work them up together using the 'groovy' owl from that set.  I stamped the owl with Memento rich cocoa.  Then markered up the stamp to get color on the limb elements using SU markers... chocolate chip, certainly celery and rose romance and stamped again.  Finally, I used the markers right on the image to emphasize those colors a little better.  The sentiment is from the Grateful Greetings set from MFT (fabulous sentiment set - I suggest getting it if you can).  Seems like I need a little glitter or something, but I'm leaving it as is.

The challenges:
1.  Simon Says Challenge - Thinking of You
2.  3 Clover Thursday Challenge - Birds or Bugs
3.  The Pink Elephant - Be Thankful.  I hope my card qualifies as it doesn't really say 'thanks', but the sentiment set is 'Grateful Greetings'!  : )

Guess that's it for tonight.  Thanks for stopping in.  Hope to see you again!
