Syren's time to shine...

It's Aloha Friday.... nothing to do until Monday... doo do do doo doo... HA! yah if only.... but it is Friday and that means the weekend is finally here!! it seemed like a long week but yet it flew by so fast... just have to enjoy the time while we can...

i've been hoarding Syren from TGF for a few months now and she was ready to break free and shine in time.... so with the help of TGF's FFCB WOW Sketch challenge this week, i was able to make that possible....
my hubs thinks she's kinda scary, but i like to think that she's a model of some sort... you know, those pictures where the models don't really smile?? hehe, overall i think she's fabulous! and a definite FAVE from TGF's creeper line...

had some difficulties using her though... as soon as i inked her i knew the colors i wanted to use and immediately colored her... then my challenge was what papers to use... after digging through my scraps, at least twice, i finally found somethig suitable... the red CS behind the strips is regular CS that i embossed using my tiny bubbles folder... the "fintastic" sentiment is from the Down by the Pond set, also available at TGF... can't tell from the pix, but i blended a few shades of orange... you can barely see the light spots (even IRL) but i like it! and i went a little crazy and embossed her body to make it look like scales... see...
thought it made a cool touch of texture... =D

well happy friday everyone!! i hope you are looking forward to the weekend... i know i am... bbq with the besties for the hubby's bday and some crafting.... always great!! gonna take a posting break for the weekend and be back on Monday for some new sharings... hopefully that gives me time to create, create, CREATE!!

alrighty... time to start off my day... need to go and see what i can snag from the BF sale... hehe! see you all soon!
