In a JiFFy: Dropping You a Line

You probably thought I was never coming back! I couldn’t do that!! This summer has had a way of getting away from me, but today it’s JiFFy Girl Day, and I can’t resist the JiFFy Girls! This specific challenge post has been a long time in the making. I can’t even remember when we first discussed it, but the whole key was no stress, so… it’s all good.

In case you’ve forgotten, or in case you are a new visitor, the JiFFy Challenge is Just for Fun! Someone (in this case me!) picks an image and someone else (Michele Boyer) picks a patterned paper, and we see what everyone comes up with!

I chose Ramona Fishing from Stamping Bella for this month’s image. The precocious little girl reminds me so much of my own 10 year old, and there are plenty of times that we actually call my darling daughter, Ramona! ¬†Michele chose this darling Hide and Seek paper from the October Afternoon Sidewalks line. It was a great match, in my book!

My Ramona is colored with Copic Markers, and then I cut a second image to use as a mask. I laid my mask over the Ramona image and airbrushed a background, grass and water with my airbrush system. I really do love the Windstorm air compressor. It’s consistent with an even pattern, easy to use, small enough to fit in my desk drawer for easy access and quiet.

It’s been so long since we JiFFy Challenged. I’m excited to see what the other girls end up with. Hope you’ll check them out:

I’m going to be stamping for a challenge today at Splitcoast! If you haven’t been by in a while, make sure you swing by our NEW home page. It’s been a LONG time in the works, and I couldn’t be more excited about our face lift!

See you soon! (And, I mean that!)
