Sparkle & Glitter w/ RSD Part 2, SBBC#75, and LOC #73

I just so happened to get my Part 1 done over at Sparkle and Glitter the Rick St. Dennis EDT Blog in March for the Progressive Challenge that happens for 2 months.  And, was able to get Part 2, for April, done as well...woooohooooo for me!  It is a first!

For those of you who do not know, for Part 1 you must enter the challenge using one of Rick's super incredible images.  There are over 1,000!  And for all types of creativity as well.  For Part 2, if you get your project in on time, you get a FREE image to use for Part 2.  This month was a sweet little thang named Aloha Nui.

I love going to the dollar store and found these magnet boards for sale.  Of course had to buy a bunch and have used....3, including the project for this challenge.  So what if I've had them over 4 years...THEY ARE GETTING USED! 

Now, I am not so cutesy cutesy but had a fun time creating and coloring with this image.  I am also going to enter this into:
Suzy Bee Bloomin' Challenge Blog  - #75 Add Some Spring Flowers
Left of Center - #73 Spots and/or Stripes

Lei'n on the Deets

Image was printed onto Whisper White card stock. 
She was colored in with Copic's and Spectrum Noir's.
Only her body was gone over with Crystal Effects.
Hard to see but light glitter on the flower ends in her hair.
She was fussy cut and made into a magnet.

Magnet Board Background

I used Holtz Butterscotch Alcohol ink and blender tool with a The Crafters Workshop stencil for yellow design in upper left area.

Another The Crafters Workshop stencil to make the circles with a green Spectrum Noir marker.

Flowers are stamped with Ranger Black ink and are from a SU! set called Everything Eleanor.
They are colored in with a blue Spectrum Noir marker.

Yellow flowers are stamped with Yellow StazeOn ink.  Stamp is from SU! set called Summer Silhouettes.

Orange StazeOn ink stamped with stamp from set called Gorgeous Grunge (SU!).

Forest Green StazeOn ink used with an edging stamp (along right side) from SU! set, Chalk Lines.

The word 'month' and days of the week gone over with dark grey Spectrum Noir marker.

Magnet from stash and used Sticky Strip to hold in place.
