Inspired Chocholate Girl

We are off on a road trip to who knows where. I will have to make up on comments when we return but for now this is for today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE - Skeem. I found my inspiration from this White Tea & Thyme. I also used Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE - Framed by my Welcome sign. For my layout I used Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE and for my color combo I used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Bordering Saffron Pirouette. My Framed Welcome sign is stamped with black stazon and on metal for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Metal Stamping. I just got some new rubbah from Whiff of Joy and could not wait to get it dirty. I stamped the Chocholate Girl from TREEHOUSE STAMPS in Esspresso 1 time on a post it note and once on white cs. I cut out the post it page to use as a mask. After placing my mask I stamped the Willow's Armchair in Esspresso then colored these with copics and popped it up on my focal layer. I drew the flooring then colored with copics. For my wallpaper I did something I have never tried before, chaulkboarding, after receiving THIS BEAUTY from Shannon for our anniversary. I just love that effect so much it may be my new obsession. I stamped the large image from Baroque in white craft on so saffron then covered that with bordering blue chaulk. I love how it turned out. Hope you do too.
