Another Tuesday, another Throwdown Challenge

     What a fun challenge this one will be!  And it won't cost you a single thing.  Tuesday Throwdown wants to see you do some "Spring Cleaning" and clean out your stash by using things on a card or project that have been hiding there, either forgotten or hoarded.  Everything on my card today came right from the stash -- nothing new, except the digi stamp from our sponsor, The Stamping Boutique, which they generously supplied to the team.  I used "Audrey, Spring Cleaning."  I thought she would be a good reminder of the theme.  :-D  Doesn't she remind you of a cheerful Cinderella of fairy tale fame?

Sketch from Midnight Madness.


     Image is colored with Promarkers and a touch of sparkle gel pen to make the water and bubbles glimmer.  All the dp and CS were in my stash and the dp is probably DCWV but I don't know for sure.  For embellishments, I added 2 different kinds of brads, some ribbon and a bow, then printed and added the sentiment.

     I hope you're going to do spring cleaning, dig into your stash of hoarded or forgotten items and play along with us at Tuesday Throwdown this week.  We'd love to see how you're inspired by our theme and where your creativity takes you.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
