Ready...Set...Party?

Hello Readers,

For tonight I am going to be playing along with The Paper Players. This challenge put a smile on my face because the instant I saw I thought of a traffic light.. So I thought I would play off that theme and a bit of fun with it..

The font is from SU so are all the stamped images
around the word 'party'
Entering Challenge:
Color Challenge #266
The black border frames in the watercolor panel
beautifully.

The word 'party' was done by hand. A complete
contrast from the block letters above.
Isn't this card fun? Full of vivid color and life!! This would make a great birthday card for a tween (maybe for my daughter) with all the groovy stamped and hand written embellishments around the word 'party'.  I applied the watercolor by picking up the color with an acetate sheet and applied the color directly onto the paper (I forgot the name of the technique); dried the card and applied again..

Go Dogs Go by P.D. Eastman reminds me of this card because of the stoplight theme and at the end of the book they all go to a dog party! Now how fun is that!

Well that should do it for me.. I hope you enjoyed your visit and please leave a comment if you are so inspired to do so.. They make my day a bit brighter. Take care and we will see you soon at TheGrandStampede.

All the best,
Shawna

A stoplight! Now why didn't anyone else think of that? Great card Shawna. I love the watercolered background and the embossed party hats and flowers are darling. Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Paper Players!
