June Smeared Ink Sponsor Hop - The Greeting Farm

I have to thank Jessica at TGF for this AMAZINGLY fantastic and fabulous image. The Greeting Farm was so very gracious to be June's sponsor for the Smeared and Smudged Forum!

Before you get started with me you should have come from the darling Lady Brayton's blog and if not make sure you start hopping HERE so that you don't miss one spectacular creation!!!
The Twisted Tea digital image screamed to me!!! I LOVE her!! She is super fab and prints out just beautifully!!

I started by printing her out on PTI pure white cardstock. I then colored her with my Copic markers. I then took my Crackle Glaze and coated her teacup. I used my regular Crystal Glaze and coated her cake and set the main image aside to dry.As that was all drying, I worked on my card base of PTI Kraft cardstock. I stamped the skull and crossbones pirate stamp from Printworks that I picked up at my LSS in Momento ink for my background. There was already SO much going on with my main image that I was trying to keep the rest toned down...well...a bit ;)

Once TT had dried completely, I matted her on black cardstock and then on a purple jewel toned scrap that I had lying around. I used a cool stitch on my machine that looks similar to the line on a heart monitor. A little dark, but very fitting =)
My last touch was a skull sticker from The Paper Source backed by the same jewel toned paper adhered with 3-D foam for a little added dimension.

My sentiment on the inside is done simply with letter stickers. I LOVE how this turned out and cannot thank Jessica from TGF enough for letting us play!!! Thank you Jessica!!! You MUST check out the delicious goodness at TGF. I already own some and love working with both their digi and rubber stamp line. Excellent stamping every single time.

Thanks for hopping with us today!!!! Keep on moving for more delicious eye candy!!!
