Coloring, Coloring…Fun, Fun Fun!!



Hello everyone~

I’ve been so busy with being “Mom Taxi” this week… my son goes to VBS and Cub Scout camp every day this week and my daughter’s cheer practices, 2 days for JR High and 1 day for a private cheer team…I’m trying to squeeze my stamping time 1 hour here and 1 hour there, lol.

So far, I’ve made 2 cards I can show. I was really in a mood for coloring for the last couple cards. I’m happy that my coloring mojo is slowly coming back!



The first card (above) was used the color combo from Curtain Call Color Challenge (ACT35) . I used Sugar Nellie’s Sweet Art Ebony stamp and colored with Copic markers. I sponged the tea roses with the cameo coral ink to make the roses close to the challenge color.




Stamps: Sweet Art Ebony (Sugar Nellie), Faux Ribbons – sentiment (PTI) 
Paper: classic white (Flourishes), tempting turquoise, cameo coral, garden green, green galore, retired DP (SU), pink and colored dots DP (MME)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black (Tsukineko) tempting turquoise, cameo coral, garden green (SU), Copic markers 
Accessories: ribbon, Prima tea roses 
Tools: big scallop oval & label 11 Nestablities






The next card was used the sketch from Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch challenge 79 (MTSC79) and the color combo from Color Throwdown Challenge 98 (CTD98).


The lady on the phone image is from TSG Domestic Goddess…really fun set! It was colored with Copic markers. I also used the same set for the background.

Since it’s a quite simple card, it’s not much more to say about what I did ;) However, I have to brag this….TSG is going to have a new release on Saturday night and I’m so excited one of my Japanese stamping/blogging friend, Torico is release her designed stamps for the new release! Woohoo!! Please visit TSG blog to check out the sneak peek!!

Also, it’s 2 more weeks for the Color Throwdown 100th Challenge!! It’s going to be a big celebration and many sponsor companies will offer the giveaways for the event! Mark your calendar on July 7th and hopefully you are going to play along the 100th challenge with (present & past) Color Throwdown DT!! (FYI, I’m participating as a guest CTD DT for a month of July!, Yay!!)


Stamps: Domestic Goddess (TSG)
Paper: classic white (Flourishes), chocolate chip, mellow moss, brush blossom (SU)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, rich cocoa (Tsukineko), Copic markers 
Accessories: buttons, vintage twine 



Thank you for stopping by.
