taylor’s cupcake challenge #12 April 21, 2008

When I saw Taylor’s challenge for this weekend, I instantly thought bright and fun.  How can you not when you visit her site.  I have had my hands on some stamps that I’ve been waiting to use, and finally got the opportunity late tonight.

  I took a different approach with these adorable Changito monkeys….I colored them in bright colors to coordinate with my papers.  I think of my kids when looking at this image.  They are constantly doing “crazy” childish things to one another.

Here is my find this past weekend.  I had to go to my local office supply store.  While browsing, I saw a Mead Watercolor paper tablet for under $5.  I got 15 sheets of 9″ x 12″ white watercolor paper that works beautifully.

STAMP SETS USED:  Stampendous Changito Amigos and Crazy about You sentiment.

CARDSTOCK USED:  Mead watercolor paper; SU! Pumpkin Pie, Purely Pomegranate, and Soft Sky CS; Tinkering ink “Grigette” patterned paper.

INKS USED:  Stazon Jet Black; SU! Pumpkin Pie, Purely Pomegranate, Creamy Caramel, Green Galore, Soft Sky stampin’ pads; Pumpkin Pie, Green Galore, Bashful Blue, and Creamy Caramel Stampin’ Write Markers.

ACCESSORIES:  Pumpkin Pie striped Grosgrain ribbon, ticket corner punch, horizontal slot punch, bold brights brads. 

Thanks for stopping by:)
