LPSC30 & TESC79 - Masculine Colors

Welcome to {Little Paper Shop} Monday! I hope everyone had a good weekend. We had fabulous weather here and lots of family time. The end of "summer" is coming up so fast!

This week we have a COLOR CHALLENGE for you for our challenge! I like color challenges the second-best of all challenge types {sketch being No. 1 of course}. So today I combined the best of both worlds with our LPSC30 Color Challenge and Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #79 {TESC79}. Here is the end result:

I had to flip Taylor's sketch straight down the middle in order to get my net in the right orientation from this fun {Gone Fishin'} stamp set. I stamped all three images in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I added a touch of color to the fish using Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. Ran the blue panel through my Cuttlebug with the Houndstooth folder for some texture on that layer. That's one of the new Spellbinders Borderabilities In Spades on the horizontal panel. How cool are these?? If you haven't tried them, you MUST. Susana has lots in stock and at a great price!

We want you to play along with our color challenge this week! If you have the time to do so, link up your creation on the LPS store blog and you will have a chance to win a set of the newly released {Katie Carousel} stamps! You can also visit the LPS store blog for more color challenge inspiration.
