Make it simple Monday Peekaboo Farm

 Wow it's hot here in my part of the Uk ☀️☀️☀️ and I have to say I feel for all our furry friends in the fur coats!! Which is perhaps what drew me to this weeks featured stamp set! This week I shall be sharing inspiration using the ohhh so very cute Peekaboo Farm from Stampin' Up!

As always on a Monday we keep it simple. Stampin' Up! host a monthly #simplestamping challenge. This month the challenge is to use stamps, ink, paper and pattern paper to create simple thinking of you cards. Now pattern paper can be a bit intimidating for those just starting out. The patterns can be a bit intense even though they are so very pretty! My suggest is to start with simpler patterns. Most double sided pattern paper has a bold side and a calmer side. For today's #simplestamping cards I've used the gorgeous Hand-Penned pattern paper.

So what did I do with these wonderful goodies? Well I made 2 simple cards exactly the same layout but chose different pattern paper and colouring in.

For the first one I chose to use watercolour pencils to colour in my image and inspired by the beautiful yellow paper went funky 😁

For my second card I went a little more traditional in my colour pallette and used alcohol marker pens to colour in.

So which do you prefer? Funky?  Or traditional? 

If you'd like to see how I made these cards and meet the other animals on the farm then I shall be doing a Facebook live over on our Facebook page at 4pm BST today. I'll  add a link here later once I've finished the live. If you'd like to watch my live please click Here

Enjoy the good weather and stay safe.
