SOS Challenge #18 - No Coloring

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is No Coloring! In the words of our leader: put down the Copics and prismas ... think of dragging out your colored ink pads and/or sentiment/quote stamps for this round! Or how about stamping an image and NOT coloring it in? Use your imagination along with your neglected stash!

For my card I chose to do paper piecing:

I love this Hero Arts stamp! I stamped it three times on white, then once on each of three coordinating papers, cut out the birds and voila! Three cards! The sentiment is from A Muse.

I did have a minor craftastrophe, though: my Memento Black ink is drying up, and I've er, misplaced the re-inker, so I opened and used my Memento purple. This, in turn, forced me to use papers with purple in them, so I chose Basic Grey euphoria. Unfortunately, they also have a lot of (gah!) pink, so I used SU Bashful Blue as the bottom layer to break it all up.

No coloring. None.

So there you go! Now it's YOUR turn. Go make a card with NO COLORING, then link it up over at Shopping Our Stash so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love your little paper pieced birdies! Cute card!

I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
