the paper players - it's very "punny"
OK...I'm not gonna lie. Anne Marie stumped me this week with the Paper Players sketch...it was a tough one for me! The challenge is to "tickle your funny bone" and I really don't have that many stamp sets that do this. I knew I had the retired Pun Fun set I could pull out, but I wanted something just a little different to work with. My mom happened to have a retired set called Very Punny and I thought I would do something with that, so here is what I came up with...
I ended up printing from the computer the sentiment "you are like no udder" because I wanted it a little bit bigger than what it was on the stamp itself.
To help me with the color scheme, I used the colors from this week's Color Throwdown.
To match the sentiment "you are like no udder", I made one of the cows stand out a bit and gave her pink spots...with a little Dazzling Diamonds of course!
