Bloggers Challenge 44

I have to say that I just love the spring and summer months! Warm weather makes me so HAPPY! I really dislike snow and cold so I have been in my glory the last few weeks. And yesterday I got my fishing license so that I can fish with my son. We have so much fun fishing together and what a cheap day out. We pack a picnic lunch and go near a park -- fish, talk, play, eat -- what more can you ask for! Anyway today is Friday and of course that means Blogger's Challenge day. This weeks challenge was a color challenge -- Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue, So Saffron and Certainly Celery. Cool combo you should give it a shot! So since I am in the mood for fishing I thought I would use my new Whipper Snapper Worm stamp. Isn't he adorable?




The main image is stamped on watercolor paper and colored in using my pads and water brush. The sentiment is from the Stampin Up! Bugs and Kisses set--I only used a part of the sentiment. The rest is pretty self explanatory -- I think?!?

Stamps Used: Whipper Snapper party worm, SU Bugs and Kisses
Ink: Timber Brown Stazon, Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue, So Saffron and Certainly Celery
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, retired Wintergreen dp and watercolor paper
Other: Brocade Brads, Chocolate Chip ribbon, circle punches, scallop circle punch, nestabilities dies. water brush, markers, sponge and lots of dimensionals!

I sure hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend!
