Time To Relax Paper Players PP491 Sunday Stamps SSC231 Freshly Made Sketches FMS435

May 16, 2020

It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The 

The Amazing Ann is our hostess this week at The Paper Players.  She has a very fun Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us!  The theme is "Men in Mind"!  Great idea with Father's Day just around the corner. 

The Sunday Stamps challenge is a color challenge.  I found it was perfect to combine these two challenges this week. It doesn't happen very often! 

We can't wait to see what you create!  Have FUN!

                                                                     Use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.

I am also playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.  Their CAS sketch was perfect.

I used a brick embossing folder to create the background.  The ric rac is cut using a die in green and black.  I also cut a 1" purple strip to match the FMS sketch.  The little man reading the paper was a gift from my dear friend Lisa Johansen.  She stamped this image and sent it to me in the mail.  I colored him with Copic Markers and added a little Wink of Stella for shine.  I just love this little fellow.  Reminds me of Mr. Bill.  The time to relax is stamped in black.  I did not add anything else since it is supposed to be CAS.  You all know how difficult that is for me!  LOL!
