TGF Play Day

Yesterday, I was really in the mood to do some coloring so my brain went immediately to my TGF stamps. The Anya's and all the other lines in the TGF family are so perfect to scratch that coloring itch:) I was in the mood for a challenge as well so I went to the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog to see what the latest was. The challenge from last Friday is a Throwback challenge, meaning to go back and use some older Anyas. Well that's easy because I have a bazillion that haven't seen ink in way too long! I decided to ink up my Mermaid Anya...
Isn't she the PURDIEST lil thing you've ever seen? And how about that purple hair? I think that's what's fun about TGF stamps, you can color them however you want, they're a very dynamic bunch and they're anything but ordinary;) I'm living out my dream here, to have purple hair, bahaha! I don't know if you can tell, but I had alot of fun coloring her:)
I added Stickles to her tail and the little beads in her hair. It's hard to see, but I also experimented with eye shadow on her! It's a light purple, and looking back now, I wish I'd added another shade, to give her a smokey look:) The sentiment is from Stamping Bella, and it comes with the Bella Mermaid:) All the papers are from Prima.

Since I was having so much fun coloring, I made this little number as well...
This is Surfer Anya and I think she is pretty sweet:) You know that movie "Soul Surfer" that's out? She kinda reminds me of the main character:) I haven't seen that movie yet but I really want to!
The papers here are from MME's Lime Twist collection, the sentiment is from Verve,a nd the splotches are from PTI's Grunge Me set.  The layout for this card is from last week's sketch challenge on the FFC blog.

Well that's it from me today:) I'm off to dinner with some friends! Enjoy your day...

Love the purple hair, too! I bought this stamp because Emma had a mermaid birthday party and I just HAD to have her! I keep eyeing the surfer girl, too. Just wish I could color hair like you do. I've done your tutorial, but still goof it up. :( Please come to Boston and teach me! :)
