Toucan Party, PP357

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week I have the pleasure and honor of being your hostess with a color challenge! 

So, I had something tropical in mind when I selected these colors. Then I went through my stamps and realized I didn't really have anything tropical. I clearly don't always think things through! However, it was no problem a little shopping trip couldn't fix :) I purchased this adorable set from Newton's Nook and had lots of fun coloring it. 

I googled images of toucans and was so amazed by the diversity of their gorgeous colors. They are such majestic birds. Check out this handsome fella. Aren't those colors amazing?! 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Toucan Party (Newtons Nook)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Summer Fun (Echo Park)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Circle Dies, Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. I hope you'll play along with my color challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

And there's me thinking when I saw your card this week that you had chosen your colours to suit your stamp set, they make such a great pairing ;-) Your shopping trip resulted in the perfect card Sandy - your toucan pair are adorable and the background paper is also a great find. You have totally rocked your colour challenge this week!

Well aren't you the blind squirrel this week? Love that you had to go shopping to fit the challenge! And what I find you selected too. These toucans are perfect for the colors and you have captured your avian inspiration beautifully! I loved working with these colors--great job!

I loved this card as soon as I saw it in the gallery. I had a wee smile at not having a set and the need for a shopping trip! The patterned paper is a perfect backdrop for this adorable pair.

I just love this color combo, Sandy! I must admit, at first I was a little stumped, but seeing all the fabulous cards just makes me smile! Your card is fabulous! These colorful toucans are so beautiful and I love the background paper and flowers to showcase these colors! Super card, My Friend! I hope you are having a great week! XX

Stunning coloring and a wonderful color combo you chose for us! I had no idea toucans were so colorful either!! said...

Ooooooohhh - I am loving this Sandy! Beautiful colouring and layout!

Sandy, what a perfect excuse for a stamp fix.... I need to remember that one. "Sorry darling, I need to go shopping because I don't have a stamp to match the colors I chose!" :-) And the stamp you bought is absolutely adorable - and you colored the image beautifully. I agree Toucan's are amazingly diverse in their coloring. One of these days I am going to see one in the wild.
