LHO Challenge 31 - Vacation

Hello & Happy Sunday to All of You! Vacation is the theme of our new lovely-hAnglar-only challenge, starting today! Oh boy...this was quite a challenge for me. I couldn't find a matching stamp in my stash of hAnglars so I had to wing it a bit. I picked this cute running girl and decided she is going on a fitness vacation, how about that?
(for larger view click on the photos)
This time I colored with distress inks for a change. Colors used are: skin- tattered rose, tea dye, vintage photo; hair- antique linen, vintage photo, walnut stain; cloth- wild honey, spiced marmalade, bundled sage, pine needles and walnut stain to shade. To color her sneakers I used twinkling H2O's.
DP is from MME Stella & Rose collection 'Mabel'. Sentiment is from Whimsy's Vintage Travel Collection. Dies and punches used: EK Success, Magnolia, Marianne Design. Flowers are from Prima, Kaisercraft, Whimsy. Other embellishments used: ribbon, buttons, lace, Stickles, half-pearls, spacers, metal flower, pearl brad.

Please don't forget to visit my DT sisters blogs and check out their amazing creations! You'll find all the links on our lovely-hAnglar-only challenge blog. You have time to enter the challenge until Saturday August 27th 6pm CEST (European time). Can't wait to see what you are creating. 

This is also my entry for the ongoing Sketch Saturday Challenge!
