PP478 CAS Woodland Friends


Hey stampers!  It's Sunday and time for another Paper Players challenge...this week, Jaydee is our hostess with a clean and simple challenge:


I knew just what set I would be using for this clean and simple, almost-one-layer card!  Kristina Werner recently did a card where she colored in her little critters with pencils, and I hadn't used mine for a while, so I decided to give it a go!  Here we go:


 I began with a set from Close to My Heart called Woodland Greetings; I stamped them in Stazon ink on a Crumb Cake card, then colored them with SU and Derwent watercolor pencils:


I tried to give them some shading for a wee bit of depth, then added some grass; the sentiment is from the same set, stamped on Whisper White and diecut with the retired Word Bubbles die:


My final touch was to round the corners of my card with my Detailed Trio punch!  

I hope you'll play with our challenge this week...remember to make it clean and simple!  And be sure to stop over at the Paper Players blog to see what the other designers have created as well!

And here is a picture of the kids' own little "critters"!  Who would know that they would be best friends like this?!


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Just adorable, LeAnne! I love the look of the colored images on Crumb Cake and those little critters are so sweet. Such a sweet picture of the pups, too. You can tell they are best buds.

This is a perfect CAS card LeAnne - those sweet woodland creatures really pop in pencil on the crumb cake. Perfect!

LeAnne, this was such a great challenge! I love your wonderful woodland scene and it is perfect with the Crumb Cake base. I love that the sentiment is white - it really pops against the base. Gorgeous CAS card
