Coloring Fun Blog Hop {Waffle Flower Crafts}


Hello friends!

It's Release Day at Waffle Flower Crafts and we are celebrating with a blog hop that's all about coloring fun!

You should have arrived today from lovely, talented and witty Laura Bassen's blog. If not, you can catch the entire hop order below or start from the beginning at at the Waffle Flower Crafts blog

My first card features the Leafy stamp set, the Hibiscus stamp set and dies, and the Willy and Friends stamp set and coordinating dies. My color medium is Distress Inks. 


I added a wash of watercolor to make the floor and the jungle background.  Next I stamped the ferns from Leafy with Waffle Flower's Chalk Ink (shade 1). I love how beautifully the chalk ink blends with the Distress Ink. 


I stamped and die cut the monkey from Willy and Friends and colored him more Distress Ink.  The branch and sentiment are from the Hibiscus stamp set. 

In honor of Shark Week, I have another card to share featuring the Tiger and Lily stamp set and dies


I added a bit of color to the background with Distress Ink and stamped and die cut the shark conga line- this time coloring with Copic Markers. 


Is there anything more fun than a shark conga line?  In costume, no less?  I think not! The sentiment is from Willy and Friends.  


Nina is generously giving away a $50.00 gift certificate to the Waffle Flower shop.  Just leave a comment on each of the stops on the hop and the Winner will be drawn from comments left on all of the participating blogs. Enter by midnight, Sunday July 12. The winner will be announced on Waffle Flower blog on Monday July 13.

The entire new release is available now in the Waffle Flower shop. Your next stop on the hop is stamping superstar, Jennifer McGuire!  

The entire hop list is below: 

Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 
Katie
