The Paper Players Challenge PP509

 Sept. 20, 2020

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge  The Paper Players!

The lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week and she has a fun Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us.  The theme is pets.  We can't wait to see what you create! 


What do we mean by Clean and Simple?

Minimal layers and embellishments
Plenty of open space, aka "white" space

I used a scalloped die to create my white layer.  I added a strip of plaid paper using the same die and cutting it  1.5" wide.   The kitten, mouse and pillow were stamped using the Clearly Besotted stamp set, You're Purrfect.  I colored the images with Copic Markers and cut them out with the matching dies.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set. 

  1. Create a new paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
