Parrots two days in a row! Today we get to learn a little more about Karen Akesdotter. Scroll on down to see parrots and to find out Karen’s favorites!
It’s me, Karin from Peppermint Patty’s Papercraft here to share something using my favorites. This was an easy choice for me. I just had to make something with the parrots from Parrot-dise! I think they are so fun, cute and awesome and I just LOVE to color them!
Another thing that you might have noticed as I’ve shared my YNS cards here this month, is that I love to ink my backgrounds. I also like to create my own stencils. Here I simply cut some different sized circles spread out on a piece of plastic sheet to use to add a bit more interest to my inked background. The distress colors I used are Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. For even more texture/interest I added some gold stars – the larger stars are from the Photo Booth Panel. The sentiment is from the new Dancing Dragonflies set. The parrots are colored using copic markers.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, if you want to see what other favorites I use for my crafting you can visit my Instagram here: @peppermintpatty42 .
Thank you to everyone who played along and celebrated with us!
The randomly selected winner from the challenge is participant #6, SmilynStef!!! Congratulations! You receive a $15.00 YNS Store gift certificate, plus an additional $5.00 for including YNS products on your entry.

Now on to the Top Pick from the challenge.
Mugdha’s card is full of clouds, color and the cute parrots from Parrot-ise.
Stenciled clouds, vellum clouds and card stock clouds are layered together to create the perfect backdrop for the parrots. We are ready to celebrate!
