Hi peeps! Hope you're having a great weekend so far! Joanne is our Paper Players hostess with a fabulous color challenge:
Isn't that an inspiring prompt?! I recently received the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP through SU's Sale-a-bration promotion...how fun are these papers! Glossy cardstock embossed with foil in shades of silver and rose gold! Beautiful! I played around with both Blend and regular SU markers and they both work well, although the regular markers do take a little longer to try and the ink tends to recede a little. I used various shades of pink markers as well as a blender pen to create my ombre-toned card today:
I used Pink Pirouette, Powder Pink, Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo and Rose Red for my colors; the mid-tones I used a blender pen to blend some of the darker and lighter shades. I cut a couple of tags, one from Glossy cardstock and one from Champagne Foil and heat-embossed a little "hello" on the glossy. You do need to be careful, as the embossing WILL flake off, so be gentle when handling it. I diecut some little petals from a scrap of glimmer paper and added a Glitter Enamel Dot to create a wee little "flower", then attached the tags to my card with some gold cord:
I also rounded the corners of my mat and Melon Mambo card base, just for a little interest!
The DT has created some GORGEOUS pink creations! Be sure to check them out here:
And be sure to add your pretty pink creation to our gallery--you might be chosen as a Headliner or Cut Above!
We taught Cassidy how to play Mexican Train dominoes!! She loved it (although you can't tell by the look on her face)!
