Playing in Paradise Challenge #13


Good day and welcome to another Playing in Paradise Challenge at the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog! This week, I thought it would be fun to incorporate decorative scoring into a papercrafting project! You can use a scoreboard or some other method of scoring. (For a quick review on the 2 major scoreboards, please see my personal blog post.)

Winner of this challenge will receive some Fancy Pants product--To the Moon Brads, Rub-Ons and Chipboard, an approximate retail value of $20! And, of course, our winners get to play along on our next challenge as our Paradise Player!

Now for our design team inspiration!

A Big Hello!

A Very Big Hello to you!  I have a fun little card to share today using a little set that just arrived at Scrapbooker's Paradise by Harmonie...a Canadian Company!  This collection, "Fable de la fontaine" is fun and whimsical, with the images being prominent characters in the French fables of Jean de la Fontaine.  ( I googled the title out of curiosity!) I think they will be perfect for nature or zoo pages with lot's of creative options for the scrapbooker or stamper.  I found this line very fun to work with and the high quality stamps are great to stamp and colour!




Stamps:  Cuckoo Clock (set of 8) Harmonie, Sweet Somethings (sentiment) (Technique Tuesday)
Paper:  Flourishes Classic White cardstock, Kraft, Yellow, Green, Fable de la Fontaine Foret Magique DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Deco Shell edger (MS), Copic Markers YG03, YG95, E25, E27, E33, Y11, B00, B0000, Lemon Glitter pen (Spica)

OK...isn't this just cute?  I love the little picture frame with the tree...sort of looks like a window?  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White cardstock and coloured it with Copic markers.  I stamped the little owl, coloured and cut him out and popped him so he is "out of the picture".  The picture was cut out and layered on green and yellow card stock and popped up too.  I added a sentiment from a new Technique Tuesday sentiment set that seemed to work perfectly for this card.  It's stamped in Memento and I coloured it with my Lemon Spica Glitter pen.  I tried to capture the shimmer...which is quite prominent in real life...but it eludes me.  This was the best I got.

This card was so simple to put together, and I am looking forward to playing with more of the sweet images in this set.  Thanks for letting me share it with you and have a fabulous day!
