Paper Sundaes!!!

I am so happy to be able to finally participate in a challenge at Paper Sundaes!! I have been so crazy busy that I haven't played with the wonderful girls over at Paper Sundaes since before May!!!  Gosh, where does the time go?   This weeks challenge is sponsored by Lacey over at Stamp and Create. She is now carrying Magnolias!!  So our challenge to you is to "Use a Magnolia".  Super easy for me! I am sure you have seen a few ppl out in blog land, specifically Zoe, playing with the "no lines" or "Faint lines" techinque. I decided to give it a go.  Well let's just say, it ain't as easy as it looks! LOL

I liked doing it, and I like how different it looks. You almost get a painted or colored pencil look with it. Strange that something as simple as taking out the black lines would do such a thing! 

 Here is a close up of the coloring. I used London Fog, but I stamped it off first than stamped on the paper that I was going to work with. That way it was extra light! I loved doing the hair without lines, it was fun. the rest was more challenging, but I do like the end result.

Those fabby little papers are from the new Authentique line. Love them and got them all! ;-) I am getting a new love for 6x6 pads of paper. I want them all, and I pick them up everywhere I see them! I am starting to hoard them though. It kills me to use the paper in them! LOL  I want it to last forever! But I used it, because I started watching multiple episodes of Hoarders on Netflix and now  I have a fear of saving anything. I DO NOT want to become one of those ppl!! Have you watched Hoarders? OMG...after watching a few episodes of that, I went straight into my room and started pitching some things that I had been saving because you never know when you might need it. I threw out an entire garbage bag full. Funny, you can't tell though! LOL 

Please stop by the Papers Sundaes blog and check out all the beautiful cards by the DT. By all means play along with us!!

Hi Tracy you have done a beautiful job of the coloring and I like the very faint lines. Your right it does change the whole look.

Hey, Tracy girl! This card is wonderful! I haven't tried this almost-lineless technique yet but I kinda like it! I still prefer the lines, I think, but I have some wonderful floral stamps that might look really pretty done this way. I wish you hadn't mentioned Hoarders as I'm sitting here looking at a big pile of crafting supplies and I can't bear to part with any of it, even though I know I need to go through it and discard things I'll probably never use. I believe part of my problem is knowing that it has now been over a year since I worked and I'm afraid I might get rid of something I'll need and I won't have the money to replace it! LOL Silly fear, I know, but the mind does funny things sometimes. Glad to have you back part-time, at least! :o)

Hugs,
Anniebee
