Happy Sunday, peeps! Jaydee is our Paper Players hostess today with a sweet clean and simple challenge:
I am pretty sure this is my third attempt at a card for this challenge; I had so many ideas, I just couldn't decide on which one to choose! In the end, this one won out;
I was inspired by Darnell's NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff!) challenge to use watercolor pencils on kraft paper. I got this Stamplorations set (Faith Expressions) before Christmas and hadn't inked it up yet, so I got some white embossing powder and SU's White Craft ink and went to work:
I used SU's new watercolor pencils and although they are nice, other than the fact that they have SU color names, they aren't much different than the pencils they had many years ago. Here, I used Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Early Espresso and Pumpkin Pie. I blended them with an aquapainter. I added a little bit of speckle on the card base, a mat of Early Espresso, some stitched Daffodil Delight ribbon and a faith sentiment. This Bible verse, one of my favorites, is also part of the set and stamped on the inside:
So, I hope you can play with us this week and show us your clean and simple floral creations! The DT has some spectacular samples! Be sure to check them out too!
Cassidy has been practicing her reading and is getting better every day! We barely got home from running errands, and she was at the table checking out her new book!
Enjoy your day!
