OCC - it's all about the coloring

I made this card a day or two ago to send to a crafting buddy on a forum to let her know that I was thinking of her.

I thought I'd share it for the challenge on Our Creative Corner 'it's all about the coloring' - showing a favourite way of colouring. Well, I have to confess that I'm not very good at colouring - find it difficult to get the blending right, whatever pencils, copics etc I use - but I'm fairly successful with this stamp (probably because it doesn't need much colouring!) - it's very simple, but one of my favourites (as you may have guessed, because I've shown other cards with it on).

As this card has used mainly just patterned paper, it is just right for challenge 72 on CBC where the emphasis needs to be on PP, no stamping etc.

I decided to try and capture a couple of shots from the screen - mmmm, every time I tried, the picture had moved on before I got the shot, so, not to be put off, I paused the picture and managed a couple of shots of salmon being fried with flames leaping around the side of the pan:

Today's word is 'cling' - I couldn't think of anything exciting for this, so this is my effort:
