Edwin for Papertake Weekly, Colour Create, and the two Simons!

I used the fabulous sketch at Papertake Weekly to make this little card.  Colour Create wanted one of my favorite color combos: aqua, lime and white!  Simon Says Show and Stamp wanted cards for men and Simon Says Stamp is open!

Happy Wednesday!  Thank you for stopping by!

Rene :D

How delightful, Rene! Love those awesome papers. If you're having a problem getting a color to blend well, change the nib. OR, you can try reconditioning your nib by soaking it in some Blending solution until all the color comes out of it. Personally, I change my nibs! Hope this helps!

Rene said...

Thanks Barb! I was wondering if that was the problem! :D

Very pretty card Rene. If you are having trouble blending maybe your next value down to E11 needs reinking, thats what happened to me recently. Once I reinked my E00 all was well again, just a thought

Aww, Edwin's so cute, Rene, but it looks like he's waiting forever to get bite...LOL. Love the colours and that DP with the little fishies is gorgeous. Love the wavy waters.

Hi Rene. Your Men Only card is darling. I love your stamped image and how you colored it. So perfect with the papers you chose to use on this card. Everything about this card is just adorable...the colors, the patterns of the papers, the little boy fishing and even down to the scalloped water with the cork bobbing in it. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
