Jami's January Challenge



For the last few months, Jami Sibley has come up with some fun challenges for the Dirty Dozen and Dirty Dozen Alumni to participate in. Each month has a theme and some guidelines to follow. This month was to use any *female* stamp and to use *sweet* in it, we could decide how to incoporate that. I chose to use the word sweet, but others just used a sweet theme. Also, the cards could not be a standard a-2 size card. This is the first time my little Sugar Nellie stamp has seen ink, so I couldn't be more thrilled for this challenge! You can see the rest of the cards by the other DD/DDA here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?mcats=all&si=DCG108&what=allfields&name=&when=&whenterm=&condition=and

I chose to go with a shabby type feel since my little Sugar Nellie looks a little like she has just wandered from Little House on the Prairie! LOL! I used a variety of Prismacolor and Copic markers to color her. My black ink smudged a bit...yes...I am irritated, but no...I did not thow it into the circular file. I had colored it way too long...oh and by the way, it was the second one that I had completley colored. ( the previous one smudged at the very last part I colored) I was so upset, started again and then this one smudged too! I had fun, regardless! Thanks for visiting!
