Lonely Pear

Both CAS-ual Fridays and 4 Crafty Chicks have challenged us to colour in stamped images this week.  There are a lot of crafty people out there who can work wonders with their Copics (check out this bucket by Karen Baker for a jaw-dropping example) but I am not one of them so I kept my colouring pretty simple.  I used the Play Date Cafe colours for my palette and this lonely looking Unity pear for a simple Thinking of You card.  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill Basics &  Gina K, (Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron, Old Olive) Stampin' Up

Stamps:  (Pear  from July 2009 KOM - A Pocket Full Of...) Unity Stamp Co, (Sentiment from Mat Stack 2 Collection) PTI
Ink:  (Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko

Copics:  YG63, YG95, Y21, V06

there is absolutely nothing wrong with your colouring, i'm still being shown up by my kids ability to colour in the lines better than me!

Love this pear - and the super-simple layout is gorgeous! I want to know how you cut those teeny strips of paper so evenly. If I try that with any of my paper cutters it just doesn't look good.
