How did it get to be Sunday evening already? Weekends just go by too fast, don't they? I spent most of my day doing some craft room organizing. I have a habit of piling up paper and supplies and just shifting them from one place to another until I guilt myself into putting everything away in it's proper place. Besides cleaning up the piles, I organized my punches and embellishments too.
After that chore was done I looked to see what this week's Paper Player's Challenge had in store. Ann has a fun, fall color combo for us. Here's what I came up with:
My layout comes from today's Sweet Sunday Sketch #240. Originally, I was going to do a vanilla confetti background with the horizontal elements in the three colors like I've used here, but then decided to get out some water color paper and make a custom background. I smeared a little Hello Honey onto my craft mat and spritzed it with water and dipped the paper in. Then I did the same with the Tangelo Twist, but used my Aqua-painter to add that color to the water color paper. In RL, it's pretty bright.
I stamped the wreath with Tangelo Twist and water colored the open leaves with Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow. I used a scrap of the water color paper to stamp the greeting, layered it across the wreath, and cut the whole thing out with a Die-namics pierced circle die. That is layered onto a larger Die-namics pierced circle die in Mossy Meadow. The horizontal pieces are cut with a Die-namics pierced Fishtail Flags die. Finally, I added some enamel dots in similar colors.
