You’re not going to believe WHY…. because I am a new TGF GUEST FARMER!!! I was soooo excited and stoked when Jess and Marie asked me back for a very special month on the Farm. They have SO many cool and new stamps for you this month you just won’t believe it and they asked me back to branch out a little bit and use some of my art background to show off some different applications for these gorgeous new stamps! So I can’t wait to share with you the ideas and creations I have for this month!!
As if my own excitement weren’t enough, I am not alone in it…be sure to check out the TGF BLOG today for the announcement of the rest of the NEW TGF Farmers and check out the TALENT I am amongst:

How’s that for a bunch of blushing beauties?!? Well, turns out we’re not the ONLY ones BLUSHING at TGF….
…introducing the BRAND-NEW TGF BLUSH SOCIETY!!!
We are thrilled to bring you TWO brand new card, scrapbook, and mixed-media friendly backgrounds to compliment SPLOTCHY released a few months ago….with our HEART Background and HELLO Background! In addition, the pride and joy of the new BLUSH SOCIETY? We bring you Blush Bonnie and Blush Babbette…two new “blushing beauties” that will be fantastic for cards, art journaling, and MORE! Here is my project:
I stamped BLUSH BONNIE on white Recollections cardstock. So I have to confess… this is my favorite cs to use these days. I have forever been a PTI girl but I ran out and needed some white cs NOW and ran to Michael’s and grabbed some and surprisingly I really like it. It bleeds a bit more than the PTI but I’ve adjusted to it and I really like how the colors blend and it lets me be a bit quicker and more painterly with my marker strokes and I really like that. Not to mention it’s $3.50 a package… definitely don’t feel bad if I mess up at that price. 🙂 Back on track… after stamping and coloring Bonnie I masked her off by stamping her onto a legal pad and cutting her out. I adhered the mask back to the colored image with a small roll of Washi Tape and then stamped BLUSH HELLO over the top of the mask in Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I cut the image out using a rectangle Nestabilitie Die and then sponged inside the die with more Pumice Stone ink (LOVE that stuff). I paper pieced Bonnie’s dress with Echo Park For the Record paper that matches the background. I used a bit of crimped kraft stock behind the main image panel and added clusters of Prima flowers at the corners of the image.
Here’s a closer look at this gorgeous new stamp:
Isn’t she gorgeous? I LOVE these new Blush Society girls… they are just STUNNING!
