This week's Paper Players Challenge is a clean and simple theme challenge. Jaydee is our hostess and she wants us to use woodland critters on our projects. I have several stamp sets that would work for this one and I pulled most of them out for consideration. I finally picked this Simon Says Stamp set called Woodland Whimsy. It was in one of the SSS Monthly kits late last year, and the critters are super cute.
Since this is a clean and simple challenge, I wanted to limit layers and keep the white space. I started by cutting a large circle from some Gina K masking paper, laying the outside over my card base of thick Whisper White card stock and sponging some puffy clouds in the negative space. The critters, trees and flowers are stamped on X-Press It Blending card stock, colored with Copics and fussy cut. I actually used the same circle die to cut the trees so that they line up perfectly in the sponged circle. Everything is glued with liquid glue.
I kept the inside pretty clean and simple as well. Both the image and sentiment are from the same SSS stamp set.
This is a super quick post, but I still have some prep for training that I'm conducting the next two days. Tomorrow I start at 6:00 am!
