Thinking of You PP414

October 14, 2018

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

The amazing Jaydee is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous color challenge for all of us!  Have fun and we can't wait to see what you create!

My card is created on a Very Vanilla card base.  I added a top layer of gold foil to cover the front of the card.  I used the new Simon Says Stamps Sketched Flowers stamp set.  I used Versa Mark Ink on the stamp and stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock.  I heat embossed the flowers and sentiment in gold embossing powder.  I used Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadows and Crushed Curry inks with an Aqua Painter to color the leaves and flowers.  I watered the Mossy Meadows down a lot and colored the background.  I added some sequins to complete the card.  I love the way this turned out.  Such a gorgeous color combo for Fall!
