Day 3- 5 of The Greeting Farm Challenge.

Good Afternoon fellow crafters. Today I shall be listing days 3-5 of the challege over at TGF.
It's too much to do this everyday so please bear with me.

Ill start with day 3 even thou we're now on day 6. Todays sketch is from Mercy Kerin. 

 And my take features an Altered MY GUY IAN from TGF's collection.

I swapped his head with the other guy in the set, as he had a hat on originally. I added headphones and can u see his MP3 in his pocket?

            Just a little touch to make him irresistable to teenage boys. I tried to make this card a little grungy feeling..  I used Charcoal Cats Eye CHALK INK to age the edges. And I used Promarkers to colour him in. ( I live in the UK.We have a U in colour.LOL)

 Special Guy Ian
Hair - China Blue, Shale and Walnut.
Skin - Ivory and Vanilla.
Hoodie - Cool Grey 2.
Jeans - Denim Blue.
Trainers - Berry Red and criscrossed with Black Fineliner 0.5.

I hope you enjoy him as much as I did making him.

On the 4th Day of Sketches TGF Gave to Me...

A cute sketch from Mercy again.

Thank You Mercy!
This time we wern't allowed to use any Dies, Nestabilities, punches etc. Everything had to be straight lines!!!

Once again I used My Guy Ian but this time he is a Digi Stamp and he has a friend - Autumn Anya. You can find them both Here.... Download them and then you can make them as big or small as you need.

Here is Autumn Anya and Ian. Best Friends Forever!

I used papers from Basic Grey and Bazzill cardstock.
A Cuttlebug embossing folder - Dots. I use these with My Sizzix Bigshot. Fantastic!

Day 5 of the TGF Chal'.

My back aches! I think I'm gona need a better chair if I keep this going!

This is my Favourite sketch so FAR!!
Again thanks go to Mercy....

I made two cards for this chal'. I really do love it.

It just WORKS!

This is another stamp from TGF.  AS it IS a TGF chal'.LOL
She is from the Hope & Grace range. This stamp is called Snuggle.

I liked her nightie but I fancied seeing her in Pyjamas, so I had a little play and "Voila!"
I bought these papers(PAPERMANIA) ages ago as 6x6 but as I was mainly scrapping (12x12) I hadn;t used them AT ALL! It's nice to see them out in the open.

Promarkers used were....
Hair -Walnut, Burnt Umber and Burnt Sienna.
Face - Ivory and Vanilla.
Cheeks - A touch of Blossom.
Eyeshadow - Cornflower.
PJ's, Slippers and Bow - Rose Pink.

Snuggle Bunny

 Body - Cool Grey 2.
Belly - Lavender.
Ears - Cool Grey 2 and a touch of Blossom on inner ear.

Card 2 uses Princess Anya.

I used lovely Imaginsce papers from the FairyTale range, Bazzill cardstock. And the same sketch as b4.

See what I mean...This sketch is GR8!
 It is clean, simple but allows you to add detail and depth.
I actually made this to give to a friend. My daughter wasn't too pleased. She wants one too...
So do I. But I never make for myself. Actually thats not 100% true. I Never Ever give my scrap pages away.

Ok I'm off now. Ill have to give you sketch 6 next time. You can also find it for yourself via the Greeting Farm site. Don't spend too much!LOL.
