Baggy Shirts and Yoga Pants

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a card for the Simon Says STAMPtember Art Impressions Collaboration Challenge. I love this fun set with the ladies chatting and gossiping over lattes. I am not that great of a colorist, but it is fun to give it a try sometimes. :)

I used the colors from the current MFT Color Challenge for this autumny card.

This image is rather......(ahem) I put it on a 5-1/2" square card, instead of my usual A2 size.
I stamped and colored my image onto a watercolor marker refill background. You can see a subtle peach color behind the ladies.

Supplies used include:
Simon Says Stamp: Art Impressions - Pumpkin Spice stamp set (from a STAMPtember collaboration several years ago!)
Tsukineko - Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
M&C Boutique - Large Circle Frame die set
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain
Canson - Mixed Media Paper
Scraps of DCWV patterned cardstock and Darice/Core'dinations solid cardstock

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope your week is going well.

  11. WOW!!! I love this card Janis, and your coloring technique is wonderful. The fall colors give it such a warm and cozy look and the image and sentiment are so fun. I'm also impressed that you tackled this large image, because I'm still too intimidated to ink up my large AI stamps. Beautiful card in every way.

Have a lovely day!
