Paprika

It's another challenge day at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and this round our theme is "Girlie Girl!" That's an easy one for most of us so we want to see lots of pink, flowers, pearls and/or ribbon. ;D For my project I used Paprika and gave her a pink raincoat and rain hat. ;D


I had fun coloring a background for this image (details of that below) and once it was finished didn't feel that all the grays clouds and blue skies fit the theme very well, so I added more pink through the papers, flowers and pearls. Yep, that looks better!


The rain puddle was a direct inspiration from Delphine's project using the same image. I loved how she had colored the water on top of the sidewalk so I gave that a try following her instructions. I like how it turned out but thought maybe next time I should leave more lighter areas - one things is for sure, she found the perfect colors and I love them. Thanks Delphine for the inspiration!


I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

My Sheri Crafts Challenge #70 - think pink
I Break for Challenge #11 - girl power
ATC Challenge - anything girlie
Digi Design Challenge - girlie
Lexi's Creations Challenge #50 - pink

  16. Oh Barbara, don't thank me, let me remind you it was all your fault... It all started with the idea of drawing a sidewalk (your idea:-)), colouring wet, using Paprika who called for a puddle... Yours is just perfect! I love the whole background you have created for Paprika, love your choice of pink and grey, and your papers and embellishments are perfect! A gorgeous page! Hugs Delphine xx
    PS: Thank you for your lovely comment about my sunset too:-)

  17. Yep, I have them all in a journal and actually create the project right on the page. If I ever need to use one then I can tear it out but for now, they're all conveniently together. :D
