Happy Sunday, everyone. I hope you are enjoying your weekend! Welcome to another week with The Paper Players. As this week's hostess, I am excited to bring you a gorgeous Color Challenge: River Rock, Baja Breeze, Rose Red and Very Vanilla.
To me this is a very soft and feminine color combination so I reached for some new toys from the Spring Mini Occasions catalog to make this for you:
Isn't she darling?! I am sucker for silhouette images so when I saw this Easter Blossoms set in the new mini, I knew it would be one of the first ones I ordered! Everything stamped here is from this set--it has so many great pieces! The little girl is stamped in Baja Breeze onto a piece of Very Vanilla that had been cut out with the Oval Scallop Frame die. The Rose Red scalloped oval was cut with my Nestabilities.
Onto the River Rock background panel, I stamped these gorgeous cherry blossoms in River Rock ink coming out on either side of the Springtime Vintage designer paper. I like how they appear to be growing right out of the paper! I also love the tone-on-tone look of stamping cardstock with the same color ink. It adds just enough interest to the background to keep things interesting!
I covered the seam between the two strips of designer paper with some yummy Rose Red seam binding ribbon that needed a little scrunching on one side...
and a bow on the other! Matches the bow in our girlie's hair nicely doesn't it?
More River Rock cherry blossoms trailing along on the inside. After stamping in River Rock, I colored a few blossoms with my blender pen and Rose Red ink. I also put a dot of white in the center of each with a Signo gel pen. Finally, a Baja Breeze sentiment finished the inside and brought all challenge colors together.
Now, I would love to see how you bring these colors together! Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team inspiration over at The Paper Players blog--they're sure to have some great eye candy for you! If you decide to play along, please provide a direct link to your card at the Paper Players blog and use keyword PP30 if you upload to a public gallery. You've got until midnight (PST) on Friday January 21st to create something wonderful! Have a great week, my friends!
