Colour Me…! 20

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  It’s time for another Colour Me…! challenge, and this was a perfect one for me to start on my Father’s Day cards:

These striking colors shouted “nautical” to me, so I pulled out some retired stuff and went to work:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Colour Me20 Stampin Up Nursery Necessities

I inked up the Chevron embossing folder with Crushed Curry ink before running it through the Big Shot to get the chevron background; the rest was just stamping, punching, diecutting and snipping!  I also used the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch:
I hope you’ll play along with us this week and be sure to check out what all the fabulous designers at Colour Me…! have come up with!
