Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Trying new things -- I like to do that. At the recent Rubber Stamp Convention in Carson, CA I picked up a couple Art Impressions Girlfriends/BFFs stamps because they made me think about the long-lasting relationships I have with some of my own girlfriends and BFFs. It really is all about having fun!

I decided to try the Magic Pencil technique because I love to color...have done since forever!  I really enjoyed using my colored pencils and Gamsol (odorless mineral spirits) to create a smooth, blended look. Still perfecting this technique, but I had lots of fun giving it a go!

Did you notice the strip of corrugated coffee cup sleeve I used behind the sentiment?  I thought it was a nice touch. When I checked out the Art Impressions blog I noticed they had a Girlfriends weekly challenge, so I decided to join in the fun!

I really had a good time with these ladies -- you may see more of them here on the blog and, perhaps, in a card making class near you!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping in...
