Scrappin' With The Greeting Farm

I didn't get to participate in any NSD events yesterday, so I was insistent that I was going to participate in The Greeting Farm's NSD challenge.  (No worries, I WILL be scrapping next Saturday instead!)  So, the only rule for this challenge was to only use stamps from The Greeting Farm; any papers & embellishments were OK.  After a little thought & searching, I found just the pictures I wanted to scrap and this is the result:

That cute image from The Greeting Farm is called Cheeky Rockabilly - isn't she great?  I thought her fashionable attire was the perfect antithesis to Sarah's lack of fashion savvy at the age of 2 1/2!  My patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye , and my cardstock, ink, and adhesive gems are from Close To My Heart.  The little metal stars are iron-on studs I adhered using my i-Rock tool.  I used my Cricut to cut my title (Opposites Attract) and stars (George and Basic Shapes).  Taking my lead from the patterned paper, I used Making Memories white paint on the edges of my papers and photos.  Finally, the whole page is based on a sketch from  - I just changed the orientation of some of the photos and used striped paper instead of cutting strips of several different papers.  I stuck with the star shapes used in the sketch for my embellishments because they seemed to fit the theme so well.  I actually thought about using hearts first to be different, but "fashion" just screams stars at me so I left it!

My Cheeky Rockabilly was stamped on some Parchment CS so I wouldn't have to color skin, lol, and I paper pieced her clothes using the MME paper.  I added color to her eyes & lips with gel pens, and colored her hair & shoes using CTMH markers.  The eyelashes were done with a Micron pen.  I also added itty bitty adhesive gems for earrings.  (You MAY be able to see them if you click on the photo to enlarge it.)

That's it for today!  Be sure to come back on Tuesday for an awesome (if I do say so myself) card featuring another TGF stamp, and a tutorial on embossed faux leather.
