A Little Something




ModSquadLogoMy good blogging friend Judy is hosting the challenge over at the Mod Squad so I couldn’t miss the opportunity to play along with her…now could I?  Paper Toling is what she calls this.  Let me explain, what Judy has challenged us to do is to take an image and stamp it at least 3 times, then cut smaller and smaller parts of that image and layer them on top of each other back together with foam tape.  Let me just say that this was harder for me then I thought it was going to be. My final card is my 3rd attempt and I am not over joyed with it either.  Have you ever not known when to quit when it comes to watercoloring or coloring in general?  That is what happened on this card.  I should have stopped when I was ahead. I started with just watercoloring and added a little prisma colored pencil over top.  The image is from Gina K Designs and sorry to say that it’s a retired set.  The sentiment is also Gina K and it’s from the set called Little Something.

Orange, Teal & BrownMy color inspiration came from the Fusion Challenge  photo. I chose to just do the photo this time and not the sketch.  I pulled the orange, brown, and green for my colors along with the flowers on the table for my card.

Have a wonderful week my friends, Nanc’
