My first Amber Ink Project!

So if you follow my blog you know I don't color very much! Not that I don't want to, just don't feel like I am very good at it! So this month with Amber Ink is going to be SO fun for that very reason! I need to get out of my CAS comfort zone for a little while! Not to mention that the images are ADORABLE! So for my first project, I kept it a little safe, and went with an adorable easy to color image...but look how much fun....

Isn't that toaster adorable? And the sentiment?  Both of these are from the Mod Kitchen set! So fun! I think this could be a great guy card! I paired them with fun Basic Grey and PTI Hawaiian Shores!

The picture doesn't pick it up very well, but the black panel on the toaster is very sparkly...trying to get the chrome effect!  Looks better IRL!

So glad you stopped by today for my first Amber project!  Watch out for more soon!
