When The Paper Players color challenge was revealed on Sunday, I knew I would enjoy an afternoon in The Fungeon. And, boy, did I?! This week’s colors are Pink Pirouette, Old Olive and Raspberry Ripple. Who doesn’t love a combination of pink and green? While the option was available for me to go bright and bold (I felt really drawn to the bold and gorgeous Raspberry Ripple), I opted to keep this card soft and pretty, accenting Pink Pirouette and Old Olive. Here’s my project:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Coloring on Stamps. The central image is from Tag It, an all-sentiment stamp set that coordinates with the Chalktalk Framelits (this image coordinates with the large tag framelit, but I chose to showcase it in an oval). I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to carefully color the images on the stamp with the paint brush tip. [Time for a DID YOU KNOW – did you know that the markers are marked with a thin stripe close to the cap of the thin tip and a wide stripe close the the cap of the paint brush tip? If not, check it out!] I find that you can’t swipe over the image too many times or the ink will “glob” up and create a mess.A couple of swipes in the same direction willd it! The final colored image won’t always be as clean as a final stamped image, but you have to be willing to let go a bit.
- A Sweet Frame. There are a million ways I could have showcased this adorable image. I like the oval shape for this image, and the Labels Collection Framelits perfectly frame the ovals. With the polka dot paper in the background, this looks like a sweet picture that’s framed on a young girl’s wall, don’t you think?
- A Little Sponging. A little sponging never hurt anyone, right? I never glue down images on a card until I’ve given everything my final approval – I have to fill out the Final Approval Form and submit it to the the gluing station on the other side of the Fungeon. After I process the paperwork, I begin to add adhesive to the final card. Maybe it’s not that formal, but I think you know what I mean. As I looked at all the final pieces, I realized I was missing something. I decided to add a small sponging of Raspberry Ripple to the edges of the oval – happy with this addition. For consistency, I also sponged the outside of the polka dot paper.
