Aren't Lily and Tweet super sweet!? i have borrowed this stamp set from my BFF. I have recently discovered the fun simplicity of Pink Cat Studio stamps. I know! I know! where the heck have I been!?! There are just so many great stamps out there right now it is hard to keep up. Seriously! So many fresh, fun and original stamps to choose from. It's a great time to be a stamper! LOL!
With these images I don't feel the need to go into lots of shading and highlights...and etc...straight forward coloring. Just stay in the lines!

How many of you frequently say: "I am going to start using what I have"...then still continue to buy more paper and embellies? Yeah, me too. But for this card I really did use stuff that I have had forever. I have decided to TRULY make an effort to use the paper that I have been hoarding for years. So I wanted to find fun paper for this image and thought these colors were fun. A little brighter than my usual...too bright you think? I also pulled out that swirl clip thing from one of the 3 retired SU! hodgepodge collections I still have. So now that I have used those, I am free to go out and buy new stuff this week! right?! Just Kidding!

Have a Pleasurable Weekend!!

Christina said...

I love the bright colors and I have been on a spending freeze for almost a year now. I guess I really need to purge and decide what i am never really gonna use.

Jessica G. said...

Sweet and so cheery! I've been trying to use what I have, too, because maybe it is possible to have too much DP?? At least it is when I start having storage issues!

I will second the idea of using up what we already own. This card is a real eye catcher, and No, the colors are not too bright at all. Your layout and coloring are both super!

I love the card and I think a reason for that is the image (obviously) and also the pink and black triangular background.

I love this card. You did a great job with the colors and paper arrangement. I just ordered my Copic pens and I can't wait to get my hands on it. All I need is some popular design stamps. That's next on my list. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
