The Challenge #56 - Colors

( ** Please scroll down for the SugarPea Designs Blog Hop ** )

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend!  This is actually my second post today and I'm sharing a card I made for our new challenge over at Always Playing With Paper's The Challenge

Our challenge this week is a color challenge.  I used the cute penguin from the Bundled Up stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps to make a thank you card.  This is an adorable stamp and I love all the little accessories that you can use on the penguin.  I colored the images with copics and then used the coordinating die set to cut them out.  I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set from Your Next Stamp and the sentiment flag is from My Favorite Things.  I used Glossy Accents on the penguin's beak and feet and then added a few enamel dots to finish my card. 

Copics used:
Penguin - C5, C3, C1
Blue - BG09, BG05, BG01, B000
Orange - Y38, Y18, Y15, Y11

Be sure to stop by The Challenge to see the gorgeous projects by the rest of the DT!  I hope you find some time to play along with us! 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week!

Hugs, Anita

  5. Hi again, Anita. I realize I wrote your name as Amy on the Sugar Pea Release Hop page. Please accept my apologies. My mind isn't as sharp as it used to be! LOL I have been viewing a lot of new crafters lately and many blogs. I basically taught myself how to make cards by watching YouTube and following 3 - 4 paper crafters online. With the advent of periscope my crafting world has doubled in the past few months. Anyway, I digress. I want to check out this challenge. I like your interpretation of the challenge... your use of pattern paper AND that stamp! I have two sets from Sunny Studio and love them both! Thanks! JJ
