With Love Paper Players PP482

March 15, 2020

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

The multi talented Joanne is our hostess this week and she has an amazing Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us!

We are all experiencing some crazy times right now but, who doesn't LOVE Spring and all the gorgeous flowers that bloom!  Hopefully, you will all find joy creating your projects this week.  

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a panel of watercolored paper that was smooshed with distress ink and water.  The gate, flowers and sentiment are from the Simon Says Stamp set Mandy's Flowers.  I colored the gate and flowers/pot with Copic Markers.  The sentiment was stamped in black.  I used the matching dies to cut out all the pieces.  Wink of Stella was added for shine on the flowers.
