Blueberry Girl

Hi All!
I hope you all had a good weekend. We did, although it was hot and humid in the mid 90s. Way waaaaaay past blueberry season but I still fancied coloring up this little cutie from Mo Manning. I'm not usually a purple person but mixed with a generous helping of yellow I can swallow almost any color. lol

Papers: a mixture of DCWV and scraps from my stash.
Image: Mo Manning, colored with Prismacolors

I am using this card as my Catered Crop project this week.

Here's your FTR19 recipe.
(remember you can use any or all of the ingredients. My ingredients are in purple)
  • Colors jewel tones of pink, violet and blue, gold/yellow and brown
  • Stamps and Stickers – gears or clock works, wizards and magic, butterflies, text/script, sentiment
  • Color Mediums – stamping/distress ink, markers (ProMarker, Copics), and acrylic paint
  • Embellishments ribbon, brads, tags, polymer clay, glitter/Stickles
  • Techniques – mix-media, collage, use and/or layer digital stamps, edge the card with paint
As always, the winning entry gets an "I Baked it Best" button to put on their blog,  will be the inspiration for the next challenge and can be a guest Chef for our QuickFire.
And . . . one lucky, randomly picked player will win a fabulous prize from Stampee Crafts.
