Happy Paper Players Sunday! Wowza, do we have a challenge for you this week! Anne Marie says it's time to get your PINK on! And with this week's color challenge, you can do exactly that. Take a look:
Now, I would be lying if I said these colors came easy for me. :-) I like pink well enough but three shades on one card?! Well, let's just say it was a challenge for me too! Here's where I ended up:
What do you think? Another one that's completely out of my comfort zone..I just kept adding more stuff!! I was definitely channeling our hostess on this one! :-) The Pretty in Pink base card is stamped in the same ink with the En Francais set and layered with some [retired] Rose Red designer paper:
The next layer is the Hello Doily stamp heat embossed with white Stampin' Emboss powder on Pretty in Pink cardstock and fussy cut. Heat embossing really brings out the beauty of this stamp and makes it look like an actual crochet doily. Heat embossing also gives a nice edge that makes quick and easy work of the not-so-fussy cutting!
Fan flowers are hugely trendy right now and since I just received my new Simply Scored board, I was eager to make one! This one was made with Regal Rose patterned DSP and an Antique Brad. The sentiment tag was stamped with Petite Pairs in Rose Red and popped out with the Modern Label punch. I just snipped off one end and tucked it underneath the brad...instant tag!
Petite Pairs is a fun set with coordinating sentiments for outside and inside so this one was stamped in Rose Red over a Pretty in Pink Delicate Doily.
Thanks for stopping by today--make sure to see the lovely work of the other Paper Players Design Team princesses! We hope that you'll pull out your wands and tiaras to get your PINK on this week! If you do, make sure you finish up before Friday, August 19th at midnight (PST) when this challenge turns into a pumpkin! Until then...have a pinkalicious day!
