As I promised in my previous post, this is the second card I made with the Sale-A-Bration goodie, Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper (page 11 of the Sale-A-Bration Brochure). 

In the first post, I had colored a whole panel of the paper completely, not leaving any white whatsoever. 

For this card, I took a smaller portion of the paper and simply colored in some of the elements, leaving the outside of the piece without color, simply as it comes out of the pack. I used the new Stampin' Up! Colored Pencils (page 24 of the Occasions Catalog) for my coloring medium. To do this card, I carefully touched the brush of my Aqua Painter directly to the tip of my chosen Colored Pencil and painted that way.

I love the look of the doily on either side of the focal piece. After cutting in half one of the Lace Doilies (page 51 of the Occasions Catalog), I glued each half to the back of my matted colored piece. One thing that I especially appreciate about these doilies is that on one side they are Whisper White, while the opposite side of them is Very Vanilla. This feature makes them ever so much more versatile.
