Stamp Simply Color Challenge!

We have a color challenge for this week's Stamp Simply Challenge (ssnotime154)--to use turquoise and orange. Here's the inspiration color photo...a boy's bedroom.


My design is in turquoise and orange, and features a young "fella" (complete with dirty knees!) that might just live in this bedroom!



This truly was a "Stamp Simply" design...I had colored the image previously, so was able to fashion a quick and easy card.

The card base is Stampin' Up Tangerine Tango, the striped decorator paper, KaiserCraft's "Devonshire" (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store).


I stamped the My Favorite Things "Pure Innocence" image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Stamp Simply Ribbon store), then colored it with numerous Copic markers.

Dimensional tape was used to mount the image panel over the crimped/jumbo eyelet borders (Stampin' Up).

Take a look-see at the rest of the Stamp Simply Challenge team's designs:

This is one of the most adorable cards I've ever seen, Deb! Love that DP and that sweet image ... and those dirty knees are perfect! So cute!!

very pretty. I was wondering if you would mind letting me know what paper you use when you color with Copics? I've had a bit of trouble with bleeding, and even the Memento ink has bled a little when I've used the Copics. thank you so much!!

To answer Helen's question above:

I use PaperTrey Ink Stamper's Select cardstocks for Copic coloring--I really love the heft and thickness! I have also had excellent luck with Neenah cardstocks.

There is a wonderful tutorial on Marianne's blog: I Like Markers, which paper tests different papers for Copic markers...find it [url=http://ilikemarkers.blogspot.com/2008/06/cardstock-testing-and-bit-about-copic.html]HERE.[/url]

Hope that helps!

Hi Deb~

I really like this card! The lay out is great, and I would really like to CASE it if that is ok with you!

The image is so cute! The knees are the perfect "Deb Detail!"

The colors of that bedroom must mean he is a Miami Dolphins Fan!

He IS Able,
