Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

I’m So Glad…


Hello Again, I am back today with the latest challenge from The Paper Players. It just happens to be time for our Color Challenge. If you know me, you know I love Color Challenges. Ann has selected the trio of colors below and of course one neutral.

Here are a few details: I just adore the seagull set from MFT. I used some yellow SU DP and a sun stencil for my background. The waves were first blended with Oxide Ink-on paper that was very close to the color Misty Moonlight. Then I took white paint and painted the swells to give them some white caps. The shell dies are from Impression Obsession. The little sunglasses are also from MFT. I used Oxide ink, and an old Stampin up stamp, and an MFT die for my sand. My coloring skills need a little work…I am certainly out of practice. I think my birds look a little dirty. LOL
