Paper Pretties Blog Hop!!!

Hello Everyone! Happy Wednesday. It is the day for the Paper Pretties Blog Hop and weekly challenge. I am so excited to be a Guest Design Team Member this month and have the opportunity to work with the very sweet ladies over at Paper Pretties.  If you arrived from the Paper Pretties Blog, then you are on the right track.

For this weeks challenge, we were asked to use 2 design papers on our layout. I found this wonderful Sock Monkey paper, and I could not resist - I had to use the new Sock Monkey stamp set. I colored the sock monkey to match the one on the paper as best I could.
I decided to make a box in a bag. I based it on the tutorial over at SplitCoastStampers. For my second DP, I used this lovely Cork paper. I also took this opportunity to use the Lacey Pennants Nesties I got.

 I colored these with Copics. I used several colors, but a lot of E70, 71, 74 and some C0, C1 over it to get the color. The reds are R22,24,27,29 and the whites are E50 and E51.  For the wrapping paper, I used E30, 31, 33 and just used little bitty dots on it to make it look a little like the cork. Once I was done, I layered it on the same red carstock I used everywhere else, and then cut it out with a bit of an edge.
Thank You for joining me today. Your next stop on the Paper Pretties hop is Amber Hillman's blog "Amber's Antics".

Hope you come back again soon!! have a great week!
