Back to Business at The Town Scrapper!

(This is one of THREE posts for me today! Please check back later this morning at 6:00 am EST for a brand new Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge, and then at 7:00 am EST for another sneak peek at the upcoming Kraftin' Kimmie September release!)

Well, after a lovely summer hiatus it's back to business for the Scrapettes! We have a brand new recipe challenge over at The Town Scrapper Blog...1 cardstock colour, 2 design papers, 3 types of embellishments, 2 ribbons and 1 stamped image!

I used one of the The Town Scrapper's exclusive Victoria Case stamps named Rock Star Lola on my card today. I paired her up with some pretty design paper from October Afternoon that is also available at The Town Scrapper. For my embellishments, I used pearls, a brad and a punched border. (well, I also snuck in a bit of Stardust Stickles on her microphone and the swirly design on her jeans!) The paper edges were all sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Phebe carries several colours of Distress Ink...I love these inks and use them every chance I get!

Thought I would work on colouring red hair again. It's coming along, but I lost a few of the highlights I was trying to achieve...I over-blended a bit again. It's a learning curve though, and if you never work outside your comfort zone then you won't grow! Next on the list is blonde hair!

Copics Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair: E11, E13, E17, E18, E19, E50, E59 Shirt: G20, G82, G85, G99 Jeans: B000, B12, B23, B24, B39

You can see the rest of the Scrapette's fabulous projects over at The Town Scrapper Blog. We'd love for you to join in the challenge this just may be the winner of a great prize from The Town Scrapper! You can contact Phebe by phone at 519-882-0623 or by email at
