Casual Jeans Friday

Can't believe I'm so late in posting this's almost bedtime! Well, today was kinda hectic here at the Breach farm... so I'm lucky to even get on the computer at all today, lol. SO... how many of you have "Casual Fridays" at work where you get to wear your favorite blue jeans? Well, LiLi is all ready for a party in her fashion jeans and sweater!

This week's TLC was to create "Faux Denim" and this is my 2nd try (and this time turned out much better--it takes a li'l practice, heehee). So, I only made one 1/4 sheet of it and then wanted to paper piece her jeans out of my piece, so I cut out a smaller oval out of the middle of my denim c.s. and then just covered that up with a larger stamped oval!! Perfect!! :)
I also used this week's Color Challenge, which was brilliant blue, tango orange, and yellow. I think this also qualifies for Thursday's challenge which was to go "bright"...hmmm, do you think this is bright enough?? LOL. I sure like the way this one turned out. As you can see in the up close versions, I used stickles and stardust gellyroll pens to add shimmer to her hair clips, the roses on topping on the cake, and the designs on her jeans and socks. This time I watercolored on watercolor cardstock--it definately gives a different look than on smooth white c.s. What do ya think?
Well, I have another cute card to show you tomorrow, so I hope you'll check back in ☺ I'm going to go pre-post it now as I have another busy day tomorrow, but a very exciting one!! My sister Kathy is coming down for a visit with her 2 kids and we're taking the kids swimming in the afternoon and it's my niece's 15th birthday, so we'll be taking her out for dinner etc. Have a super stampy weekend!!

Very cute - I really like the way it looks on watercolor paper. I think it makes it easier to blend the inks (at least for me).

The denim technique is really cool looking!
