Pun Fun Cutie!!

Good Morning Everyone and welcome to another challenge from The Stamping 411 Operators. I hope you’ll play along and also take the time to see what the other Operators are doing.

Here is this weeks sketch:


…and my interpretation……

Sketch 124 and 125 001

For this fun card I used the “Pun Fun” set from Stampin’ Up!

The base of the care is Melon Mambo and cut at 4 1/4” x 11 and score at 5 1/2”

I then did a mats measuring 4x 5 1/4 for the black and 3 3/4 x 5 for the white which is stamped with the Polka Dot Background Stamp.

The Image piece is actually a scrap of Watercolor Paper and measures 2 1/2 square. I stamped the image in Black Stazon and used my Watercolor pencils and Aqua Painter to color in the image. I just love using our watercolor paper and coloring that way. The Melon Mambo and Black Mats are cut to 2 1/2” square.

That’s about it, I’ hope you’ve enjoyed your visit and will come back soon.

Don’t forget to visit Stamping 411 and play along.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!!!

This sketch lends itself to this stamp set! I love your color choices and what you did with thil little skunk. I also like that you could substitute any of the images in the set and have a whole new card with this.. Fantastic.
