It's a color challenge!

ETA: Tips & Tricks page now posted at the end of this post!
Happy Monday everyone, I hope that your week is starting off great so far! This week we have a fun color challenge brought to us by the Trendsetter of the week Pam. Make sure to check out the TSG Blog to find out how you can win a TSG gift certificate simply by playing along :)

I have had the plans for this card in my head since I was in the process of designing the Domestic Goddess stamp set. I'm sure those of you who are SAHM/houswives can totally relate to feeling like you are doing a million things at one time! This card is for all of us that have such an 'easy' job of staying at home all day eating bonbons and watching our soaps :-D

I stamped my scene onto kraft cardstock using Sahara Sand ink to give it that watermark look. The main image was stamped onto whisper white cardstock and colored in using Stampin' Up markers. This was the first time I've actually used these markers to color an image in and I was completely surprised at
smooth they turned out to be! There are hardly any streaks and they are waaaay cheaper than Copics lol!
