I'm Just a girl...

 Hello there my crafty peeps. I hope you are all well and settling  nicely into the New Year.

I can’t believe how fast this month is going and that it’s already been two weeks since my last post.

With that being said, I am here it let you know about the newest “Anything Goes” challenge over at Through the Craft Room Door blog.

Through the Craft Room Door online magazine has 90 + pages of fun tutorials, loads of inspiration and FREE digital images that are located in the "Subscribers Only Area.” You will also have access to all the previous issues when you join. The newest issue is due this Month so be looking for it.

This week we are proudly sponsored by:

For my inspiration this week I thought I would step out of my comfort zone and try black hair, and because I am a sucker for punishment I thought I would also go for “BIG” black hair while I was at it !!!

 This is Circus Trixie, by none other than Saturated Canary.
 I will be honest and say that I definitely need more practice, what in the world was I thinking???

didn't want to make her into a circus act for a couple of reasons, one of which was the fact that I didn't have any DP with that theme. These particular papers are from Recollection's "All Girl" collection.

Embellies: MS punch for my flowers, black Viva Decor Pen Dies: SB and Memory Box 
Sketch: Milo Lilja - Art & Design

The sentiment is from my fav Word Art blog, Ginger's House, and I thought it perfect for this card.

I printed her out on Neenah card stock and coloured her with my Copic Markers.

Hair: C05, 07, 09

Outfit: RV11, 14, 17 YG21, 23, 25 BG72, 75

  7. Sandra, Those sentiments are both just perfect for the card and the image and I just love all of SC images. Your choice of colors are wonderful and with the paper it ties everything together. Black hair is hard to do and you did an awesome job, love the highlight you created. Now if you had some problems not not let it stop you because you did a good job, just be a little lighter on the top areas. I'm going to send you a link.
