Celebrate Good Times - Come On!



Pals Paper Arts is celebrating its 100th Challenge with a technique challenge.....and some fabulous blog candy!  Every Design Team member is offering blog candy that will be sent to ONE lucky designer who plays at PPA this week.  I used one of my favorite techniques on this card.  I colored directly on stamps from Clearly for You and Perfect Words using Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze and Peach Parfait markers. Simple but very effective!  So take your amazing, awesome and talented self over to Pals Paper Arts and show off a favorite technique of your own!

If you are the blog candy winner I will send you C is for Cat, 4 yards of gingham ribbon and two dozen 6x6 squares of Stampin Up! designer series paper.

I like coloring my stamps with markers, too. It gives you endless possibilities! Your layout has a neat whimsical touch, the way you angled those tags. Very sweet, Linda!

What a lovely card! I really want to try this kind of coloring. I usually just stamp in a dark color and then color the image. TFS

Love your card! What a great color combination. Thanks for reminding me to use my edge punch on patterned paper also. I always seem to forget about using it that way.
