Happy Palm Sunday, peeps! It's time for another Paper Players challenge, where Ann has given us a beautiful color challenge:
What beautiful spring colors! My first thought was to do a floral, but I like to try to think out of the box a wee bit, so I pulled out Crafting Forever, which I haven't used in a long time, and went to work stamping, coloring and cutting:
And my sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches:
This was a lot of fun to make! First, I stamped all the pens in Memento ink, then colored them with SU Blends and fussy-cut them out. To assemble the card, I used a piece of retired Daffodil Delight DSP for the top layer, then a piece of Balmy Blue, on which I stamped a floral image from an older Paper Pumpkin set. I colored it in with the light shade of Balmy Blue Blend and added a few little speckles. The little scallop of Calypso Coral finished the sketch! My final addition was the sentiment panel, which was diecut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit and accented with a Grapefruit Grove faceted gem, which I colored with a Calypso Coral Blend:
I left the bottom portion plain to offset the busy upper portion!
I am willing to bet you could come up with some amazing projects with these colors...I hope you'll share yours at the Paper Players blog! Meanwhile, check out what the DT did:
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
