Happy Thursday peeps,
I'm almost late getting my card posted for this week's Paper Players challenge. For some reason I couldn't come up with an idea for Joanne's color choices. I was mulling it around lying in bed last night and thought of this Altenew set, so this morning I put it to paper to see how it would look. Kind of pretty, actually.
As you can see from the graphics, I used the new Freshly Made Sketch as my layout. I actually have a paper cutter that cuts in a wavy line and that was perfect for the bottom of my panel.
I began by stamping the outline of the flower in Memento tuxedo black randomly on X-Press It Blending card stock. Then using the Mini Misti, I stamped the stem in Mint and the flower in layers of Perfect Plum. I thought it needed a few fills around the flowers, and the stamp set has several small images that worked well for this.
The card base is Sahara Sand. I cut another small piece of Sand card stock and used the TE Burlap EF and layered the top panel over it using fun foam.
The "hello" sentiment is Avery Elle, which after I placed it, I realized it's not in the right place according to Jen's sketch. Of course, I had to add some embellishments, this time in the form of light green enamel dots.
Here's the inside using Joanne's color theme.
We're almost to the end of the week. That makes me happy! I'm working late this afternoon, which is why I had time to do this card this morning. Have a great rest of your day.
Thanks for coming by,
