The Paper Players – PP396 – A Theme Challenge from Joanne

Click to enlarge.

We have a Theme Challenge over at The Paper Players!  This week, our challenge host, Joanne, is asking us to create cards using the them “Animal Antics”!  It is 8am here in Florida, the temperature has already hit 90 degrees.  I think I picked an appropriate STAY COOL set from Waffle Flower!  The toughest part of this card was planning the layering and the multiple masks.  The set includes a wonderful wiggly wave line; once you set the wave lines, adding the fun critters is much easier.  The majority of the card is copic-colored but the sun-drenched sky is distressed.

Supplies: Waffle Flower Stay Cool, My Favorite Things Blueprints 13, Versafine Clair, Hero Arts embossing powder, Copics, Distress inks

    So cute, Elizabeth! We’ve entered the stage of FL weather where I wish I could be perpetually in a pool like these fun critters. Fabulous coloring, my friend!

    Wow, that is some warm weather, Eliz! Kind of jealous, it’s still unseasonably cool in NY. Super cute card, great job coloring, and your background is fabulous!

    Masterful masking and colouring! It feels like summer just looking at this card which is really nice because right now its grey and raining outside my window. Sending a hug to you.
