MSL Challenge - Turquoise & Brown

This challenge was a stretch for me. Brown and turquoise isn't my favorite combination so I struggled. I do like this Maggie, she looks so 50's. I don't know the name of this image, she was included in an image swap.
Paper: DCWV Linen Closet; Stamp: Magnolia; Cuttlebug Stylized Flower Folder; Spica: Gold; Cloud 9 Clear Epoxy Sticker; Smooch Illuminate; Diamond Glaze; Copics: [skin R20, E00, E000][Hair E37, E35, E34][Clothes Y28, E44, BG15, BG23, BG32, E44]
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - You know all those catalogs that you didn't order but show up in your mail like magic? I keep a stack of those next to my craft desk all the time. I use them for glueing, glittering, stamping, and cutting with my craft knife. I use the pages at the end to "stamp off" my stamps to clean them. I use pages to overstamp something. They make a nice cushion for rubber stamps with no foam. As each sheet becomes contaminated, I tear it off so I have a clean sheet to work with. We do recycle excess catalogs but a few in your craft room come in handy.
