Fall Blessings Paper Players Challenge PP512

 Oct. 11, 2020

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

The amazing Ann is our hostess this week and she has a gorgeous color challenge for all of us!  We can't wait to see what you create!

I created a water color panel using the four colors in the challenge:  Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadows and Cinnamon Cider.  I used water and smooshed all the colors on a piece of water color paper.  Once it dried, I used the MFT Lots of Leaves Cover Plate to make this gorgeous background.  I used the Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Cinnamon Cider paper to create the sentiment using the Honey Bee Stamps Fall Honey Cuts for the sentiment.  The "blessings" were stamped with Cajun Craze ink.
