Guest Designing for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday

Well, it's no secret that I've been having a ball playing in the various challenges on the Outlawz forum, but today I'm joining the Twisted Thursday Team as Guest Designer.  WooHoo!  Although the theme at TT is always ATG, this week there's no twist and the Design Team has come up with a fabulous variety of projects.  I'm thrilled to be able to join them.  

I decided to use a sweet image from Scrap N' Dipity called Fenna Snowflake  because it gave me a chance to use my new Stitched Snowflake die from Lawn Fawn and new die cut sentiment from Kat Scrappiness.  It's monochromatic because I seem to be stuck in a "Winter blues" phase (besides, the current Scrap N' Challenge calls for Monochromatic), so there ya go.  I've added a smattering of pearls to the snowflakes and some sparkle to those on the image itself with some Stardust Stickles.

Here's a closeup of Fenna Snowflake.  She's die cut with Spellbinders Labels Four and inked with Distress (Stormy Sky) while still in the die.  I've colored her with Copics and added detail to her curly hair with Prismacolor pencils.  It doesn't really show up well in the pic, but I've also added a bit of extra texture to her hat  and scarf by dabbing it quickly with terry washcloth dipped in 91% an isopropyl alcohol.

Thanks so much to the Outlawz Twisted Thursday for allowing me to join them this week.  I hope you can come join in the challenge as well.  Not a member of the Outlawz?  Just ask to join.  It's a lovely Group of supportive crafters with a new challenge starting every day of the week.  Great place to kick start your mojo and meet new friends.  Come play with us.
