Just A Note for The Paper Players

 Hi, how is it going for you? I am slowly trying to get back in the swing in my craft room with some easy stamping. Playing around with a simple design and a fun challenge at The Paper Players

I needed something just for fun today, and so these new mouse images came out to play featuring the Wish Happiness stamps and dies from Colorado Craft Company. Here's my take on the masculine theme challenge.

Nothing too fancy, just some papers from my stash, dies and a bit of coloring with Zig markers. 

I am also adding this to NBUS Challenge #29. Have a great day!

Color Hues - Turquoise and Coral

 Such a wonderful combo for one last summer card!

The Starfish Wishes stamps were still out on my desk so I went with an under-the-sea scene. I stamped the images in soft brown and intended to use my Zig markers to color. While that worked well with the plants, I couldn't seem to get a good coral shade.  Using colored pencils on the starfish enabled me to layer colors until I achieved just the hues I wanted and a bit of soft texture.

I added some gold stars and a few Nuvo Drops dots and white gel pen accents. I hope you will check out the amazing work of the DT and join us at Color Hues!

Now that I think about it - I can't promise that is my last card for summer, lol! There are some weeks left officially, right? And it is still plenty HOT here!

Stay well, friends.

Be yourself.
