Pockets full of sunshine!

Anyone else joining in Kathy's 30 day coloring challenge, you can see all the deets HERE. I love playing along when I can and oftentimes end up with lots of things colored that I later use on a card or tag or something. :D

I had this card kit from Gina K; there are several images I just LOVE in this kit; but when I saw the colors at Cupcake Inspirations - I LOVE FOOTBALL - I had to play along. Yes, I realize I don't have a football in here, but I have the beige/brown color going on and that counts in place of a football - HA! I just love the orange and teal combo and orange is a color I rarely use!

I stamped the outline images on some watercolor paper - no clue what brand, received in a Hero Arts monthly kit several months ago, sorry - and then used the rock and roll technique to stamp the matching images in various oxide inks. Once dry, I added more depth and dimension with Tombow Markers and Prismacolor Pencils (coloring those nooks and crannies as Kathy teaches). I die cut the images and then had these pocket cards - I've had them F O R E V E R!! I sponged the edges of the pocket and used a MFT tag die to cut the piece to slip inside. My thought was you could write a message on the back of the tag and on the back of the pocket if more room is needed. I used a couple different stencils for the tags; one I kept the fall colors - Antique Linen and Old Paper; the other I switched over and focused on the blue using Broken China. The sentiments were stamped in MFT's Dark Chocolate.

I adhered the images to the outside of the pocket; I can either add some hemp and tie these on to a fall colored gift bag in kraft, or rust, or orange; or just slip them inside a gift as is!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a GREAT week!
