Congrats on Your New Home Paper Players Challenge PP503

August 9, 2020

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

The amazing Joanne is our hostess this week and she has a bright, vibrant color challenge for all of us.  

Now, I must admit I love bold colors, but this combo threw me for a loop.  I needed a card for a couple that just purchased a new home, so I thought I would give it a try.  She is an artist so,  hmmmm---whimsical might be a fun way to go.  I layered Night of Navy and Pool Party on top of a white card base.  I added a piece of watercolored paper that I stenciled using a Tim Holtz sunhine and Distress inks.  I combined a yellow and peach to make the Mango Melody.  I used the stamp set Doddle Buds by WPlus9 for the flowers, leaves and stitch marks.  I colored the flowers with Copic Markers and cut them out with the matching dies.  The sign was stamped using the Welcome Home stamp set by Neat and Tangled Stamps.  I cut it out with the matching die.  A little Wink of Stella was added to the flowers and leaves for shine.  I ended up loving the color combo and hope you do, too!  Have fun and we can't wait to see what you create!
