Just Relax The Paper Players Challenge PP596

 June 19, 2022

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

The lovely Jaydee is our hostess this week!  She has a very fun Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us--One Layer Cards!  Have fun and we can't wait to see your creations!  

My card is created on a white card base.  I must admit, I was focused on the one layer card and missed the CAS part.  I stamped the seahorse from Lavinia-Sebastian the Seahorse in black ink.  Then, I stenciled different  shades of oxide distress inks from Tim Holtz--Prize Ribbon, Broken China, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon to create the background.  I used a stencil I found in my stash for the waves and a Tim Holtz circle stencil for the bubbles.  The sentiment is from MFT PI Serenity stamp set.  I used white embossing powder on black card stock. 

  1. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  2. Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL, including ours
