Color Challenge: What is That Kitty Thinking?

Color Challenge: Mission Accomplished! I really had a tough time deciding what I wanted to do for the Paper Players Color Challenge (see below for original post). After some sleep and much thought I decided that I would use the new stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini called Touch of Kindness. It really is super cute! Here is the card I came up with:

I had a tough time photographing it because it kept having all these weird shadows, but I think you can still view it well. Isnt't that kitty and those birds adorable?? For the card base I used Crumb Cake, the embossed strip on the left is Baja Breeze and I used the NEW Solid Stripes Embossing Folder. Don't you love it?? The stripes go up and down so I turned my paper to to the side a little to that the stripes would be diagonal. My photo corners (this SU! punch is now retired) are Basic Gray and Poppy Parade. I used all FOUR colors from the challenge. My sentiment is also from the SU! set Touch of Kindness.

For my coloring: I did the birds in Baja Breeze, bird bath in Crumb Cake, flower petals with Poppy Parade, leaf and grass in Old Olive, the car in Basic Gray, and his collar in Poppy Parade. I used my Watercolor Wonder Crayons for all the coloring except what I did in Poppy Parade. For that I used my ink pad and blender pen.

Thanks for taking the time to look at what I created. I was really quite pleased with how it turned out.

Until next time Happy Scrappin' and Happy Stampin'!
