Color Throwdown - Using the rainbow palette....so we have very colourful sleeping bags today. I used Elegant Eggplant, Marina Mist, Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Poppy Parade. I had started out with Bear being Tangerine and Daffodil (thank goodness for watercolour paper!!!!!) Once he was on the card though, there was just too much red going on - so I dirtied him up with some crumb cake.
I had to give Bear a pair of Sock Monkey's glasses so that he didn't look so angry about camping. His teeth have been whitened with gel pen.
The sketch comes from The Paper Players this week. I told Nance that I was going to try and think outside the box for the two circle areas (where the sleeping bags are)....but I still ended up using paper. :( Ooops!!! I just noticed on the Paper Players blog that this is suppose to be a Clean and Simple Sketch - Sorry - this may be a little overdone for that.
Finally, the summer theme of the card comes from Hand Stamped Sentiments.
We have a beautiful day outside so I think I'm going to go for a walk - I walked SOOOOOO much when I was in Ottawa - I need to make it a better routine. We're also excited in our house tonight because we're going to see WICKED! WoooooHoooooo!!!!!!
Hope your day is full of sunshine and excitement! Thanks for visiting - Joan
