Greeting Farm Blog Hop S&S style

Hello my lovelies, I am so happy that you have joined us today for the Greeting Farm blog hop Smeared and Smudged Style! I want to send out a big major thank you to the Greeting Farm for allowing us to use their images.  They are awesome! We were given the opportunity to pick which image we wanted to play with and I picked an image called Royal Pain.  She is so freaking cute it's not even funny, but of course those of you who know me know I don't do cutesy sooooooo, I guess you could say I did pain in my ass teenage "cute" if there is such a thing.  Let's just say I modeled her after my daughter, her favorite colors, favorite hair colors out of all the ones she has had!!! I am pretty sure I even put some of her attitude into the picture!!  I am also using this card for the Smeard and Smudged Guest DT member challenge for June.  You can find it here.  I made my card using SU cardstock Taken with Teal and Whisper white.  Ms. Pain is stamped with memento on the white and colored with copics.(#'s E00, R29, YR07, 100, BG09)  I used the same color over and over to shade on this card!  Then I took another piece of white cardstock to make the background that she is "floating"on.  I used a watercolor technique with regular cardstock, water, and Tim Holtz distress reinkers Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, and Broken China.  I love the outcome.  Now honestly I have to admit that I stopped there and pop dotted Ms. Pain on the card and left her be.  Then when I came back I thought to myself, now why the hell would you show something like that!!!    I mean honestly it wasn't very pretty! BUTTTTTTTT for the life of me I couldn't figure out what else to do! So I took a picture of it and shot it off in a text to our lovely Ms Alison so she could help me get past my creators block!!!  And she did and I have to thank her very much cause she is so freaking awesome it isn't even funny!!!!!!!!!!   MWAH Ladybird!  She gave me the stickle swirly idea so that is what I did, I took the Tim Holtz distress stickles in Orange Peel, Broken China(I love love love this color), and Xmas Red and made little swirly's on the background!!!!  Love it!  I printed out the words Royal Pain and then added them to the top covering them with some Close to my Heart Liquid Glass!

THIS IS DELICIOUSLY FABULOUS AND BEAUTIFUL!!! And yes, I meant to do those in all CAPS!!! WOW WOW WOW!!! I do the same thing when I'm blocked, send it to one of my creative crew and bounce ideas back and forth. It's SO helpful. But...back to you! I'm in awe Kelli!!! Not that I'm not always but really...you have very much so outdone yourself!! This is one to be framed. (perhaps for your daughter? ;) hehehe...
