Paper Players Color Challenge



pp321Hello Friends,  As soon as I saw this color combo over at The Paper Players this week I knew I had to find sometime to play along. I managed to squeeze in sometime on Sunday night. At first glance at these colors, your mind might go directly to Christmas, I on the other hand needed a thinking of you card for someone special so I pulled out one of my ALL time FAVORITE stamps (from Northwood Stamp Company) and started coloring. I used both Copics and Prisma Colored pencils to color this awesome stamp.  I had to mix both mediums as my amount of Copics is really limited (10), plus I am still a newbie and need a lot more practice. I love the effect of cutting out a shaped panel on a very large stamp…I think it really kicks it up a notch.

Hope you have a terrific day and I will be back on Thursday with STB!  Hugs,  Nanc’

  1. You are so right, I thought of Christmas when I saw these colors. I love that you did a 180 with them. Just lovely and colored so very well. I think I would be afraid to die cut it after doing such a great job. I love the extra pizazz that it adds to your card. I am pinning this one.

  2. Such a pretty card! You’ve used the colors really well, Nancy!!
