Enjoy the Ride for The Paper Players!

Hello friends!  It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  This week the fabulous Ann is bringing us a timely Color Challenge!

I'd already made plenty of Valentine's cards, so I thought it would be fun to use these colors for Vienna, who is obviously enjoying her pretty pink Vespa!

The cool thing about Stamping Bella is that they provide their customers with coloring maps, which helped me more with the shading than the coloring choices since I was using the challenge colors.  Those pleats on her skirt were tricky but fun to try, and having that map really helped.  I hope to color Vienna and her Vespa again soon and add a scene in the background.  But for this card and it being the first time I've used this stamp, I felt challenged enough just coloring this tiny image with my Copics!

After the coloring was complete, the panel was die cut then adhered to a slightly offset piece of red cardstock, then added to the black card base with thin foam adhesive.  The sentiment is from the same stamp and was also die cut and popped up with foam tape.  And that finishes my card!

Thanks for visiting, I always appreciate it so much!  I hope you'll join us this week for this fun color challenge at The Paper Players!

Well, this Vienna is who I want to be when I grow up...thin, cute, curly hair, can wear horizontal stripes, loves frilly red skirts, has pretty legs that look great in heels, and drives a pink Vespa! Yep, that about covers it! LOL...what a totally adorable image and you have colored it all perfectly! What a FUN creation, I love it!
