Hello, I am the hostess this week at Just Us Girls and I have chosen a very simple challenge for CAS Week- Coloring. Can’t get any easier than that! If you choose to play along, just remember to check out our graphic and see what Clean and Simple means to us.
Card Details: Today’s card was totally inspired by Michelle Short and I have her wonderful card linked up for you Here. I used both Prisma Colored Pencils and Copics to color my sweet little bears along with a blend of pink and purple Oxide inks for my heart. I have tripled the bear dies with white card stock to add some dimension. I don’t know about you, but I do this all the time as I think it adds more stability and makes the cards more eye-pleasing. This darling set is from MFT and is called I’m Still in Love with You. My hubby was impressed with my coloring on this card, and let me just say, those praises are hard to come by.
I certainly hope you will come by Just Us Girls and check out what the DT and Guest- Karen Walker have done! This is Karen’s last post with us and I have certainly enjoyed all of her cards this past month. Thanks, Karen for being with us!
Take care, Nanc’

Tough audience living with a real live artist…but he is right…your ink blending is expert level! The coloring on your bears is equally fab too! Sweet, sweet card!

The praise from your hubby is well deserved! Those little bears are colored perfectly with so much depth. That ink blended heart makes the perfect background for those little love bears and I love the addition of the little hearts between them! Awesome CAS creation and great choice for our challenge this week.

Your colors are such a lovely blend! I agree with your husband about the fabulous coloring, and I love how sweetly the swinging bears seem to be eyeing each other. This card warms my heart!

You really brought those bears to life with your coloring, Nancy. The only thing better would be if they were actually swinging. 😉

I loved your challenge—such a perfect way to end my wonderful month of Guest Designer! It was such fun–I loved playing along with all of you! Your ink blended heart is beautiful, and I love that sentiment! Your husband is correct, of course! It’s always interesting to me which card elicit praise from my husband.
