cfc41 let's shell-ebrate

The "jest for the pun of it" theme for this week's CASual Fridays challenge just fit right in with a stamp set I got recently - Paper Smooches party posse. Such fun images!


Pin It
Supplies: Stamps - Paper Smooches party posse; Inks - Versamark onyx black; Paper - My Mind's Eye follow your heart be amazing; Dies - Lil' Inker Designs flags and tags; Twine - Paper Smooches stamp packaging; Markers; Clear Embossing Powder

I really enjoyed colouring this little guy. I'm trying to improve my colouring - working on the highlights and shadows. Often I feel I colour too lightly. Certainly by the time my cards are photographed and on here I feel that I've lost any subtle shading. So I'm trying to emphasise and add more depth. I think I'll try and look up some tutorials tonight :)


Oh and one more thing to love about Paper Smooches stamps; see that sweet bit of twine - Kim wraps each stamp set with a touch of tissue paper and holds it in place with that twine! I don't let anything go to waste!

Those Paper Smooches critters are so much fun--just received my first set, Chubby Chums, so I know what you mean about the twine! Is that banner a die from Li'l Inker?

Hi Debby, this is the cutest card!! I just recently found you through Jackie Rockwell's blog and have decided to send you a Liebster Blog Award. I know it's a little bit of a cheat since you have more than 200 followers so if you don't mind, can you drop a couple hundred followers for a week or two? *snicker* Just kidding!

Hi Caroline (canadian_liner), yes that's a Lil' Inker Die from their flags and tags collection. Always like a bit of enabling :)
