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

You’re Manatee-rific


Hello, It’s the middle of the month already, and time for the next hues of color and Color Hues. I love the color pairing that Julie chose for us and I thought since it’s summertime here in Florida I would do something along those lines. I love these sweet Manatees from Newton’s Nook as they are just so darling and quick to color.

I am also playing along with CAS Mix Up Challenge where the challenge is to use stencils and either paste or gels as a combination. I have chosen shimmer paste from Nuvo for some added sparkle to my shells. I was happy to see this challenge blog was back!

Card Details: Manatee-rific- stamps, sentiment, and shell stencil are all from Newton’s Nook. The wave type stencil is from Mayco called Groovy. After I inked my backgrounds using oxide Inks I used some Nuvo shimmer paste for shine. My Copics are running out of ink so they didn’t color very well. Ric Rac is MFT and the other piece on the second card is the negative from the Ric Rac piece. I thought it resembled waves.

Please come on over to Color Hues and check out my Fabulous Design Team’s cards along with our wonderful guest Amy Tsuruta! I adore her and her work. I know you will be inspired! I certainly was

Take care, Nanc’
