Paper Funday Challenges - April 2024

Hi Crafty Friends and Welcome to your Wednesday!  It's time for a new challenge month at The Paper Funday Challenge Blog and we have 2 great sponsors this month:  Rachelle Ann Miller and All Dressed Up.  The Optional Twist this month is:  Sweet Treats.

For my team project this month, I've colored the "Hang in There" digital stamp from All Dressed Up, using my Prismacolor Pencils. 

I've tried a new paper for coloring, one with more "tooth" and I'll say I am not happy with it.  Even though a paper with more tooth is supposed to be a better choice for pencil coloring, I prefer my 80 lb. Neenah Classic Crest Smooth paper.  Using this toothy paper left my coloring blotchy and very hard to blend.

I've blended a very subtle cloudy sky in the background, using a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things.  To add a bit more dimension, I've die cut some clouds, popped the smaller cloud on foam pads and outlined them with Crystal Stickles.  I die cut the focal panel using a nesting rectangle die from Kat Scrappiness.  

Here's a Tip:  I die cut the glitter mat using a frame die from Kat Scrappiness, which left a "hole" in the middle of the glitter mat.  No one knows the middle is missing and I have a piece of glitter card to use on another project.

We invite you to visit us at The Paper Funday Challenge and join in.  We are always amazed at the talent this crafting community has.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
