...Farm Fresh Color Challenge

It's Farm Fresh Friday time at The Greeting Farm Blog, and this week we have a...Color Challenge From Kadie!  This is also Release Week, and we have a sneak peek at some of the new Jessica Hymas Chibi Digi Images!  I've used the "Chibi Guitar" image (and the sentiment from "Showtime") for my first card, and printed her on some PTI White Cardstock before coloring this Bohemian Beauty with my Copic Sketch Markers.  She was paired with some patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday paper pad.  Does the layout look familiar?  I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch #61 for my layout, and does that lady have some GORGEOUS sketches....thanks for the inspiration, Karen!  After adding some Paper Piercing, Stitching, and several Silver Pearls the card was complete.

I loved this combo so much that I decided to make another card using the new 8X10 "Roll Call" set that will also be released tomorrow!  This little princess is "Miko", and she was stamped in Black Ink onto White Cardstock before being colored with Copics Sketch Markers.  I used the same patterned paper pack as my first card, but I added a Border Punch, Stitching, Paper Piercing, and a Crocheted Flower with Pearl Center (THANKS, LOIS!!!) to complete this card.
Now let's see what the other Farmers and Critter Crew have up their sleeves for today's challenge:
That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head over to the TGF Blog for the official challenge rules and play along with us!  I'll see you back here tomorrow for another C4C Challenge. Until then...
