Oh, Hello Paper Players! {PP137}

Hi there, friends! Happy St. Patrick's Day! I've got a card to share with you for this week's challenge over at The Paper Players where the always amazing Ann hosts a Clean-and-Simple challenge for us and it's a sketch...my favorite! 



And here's how I interpreted the sketch:


My color palette was inspired by the colors in the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper.  Even though I didn't use designer paper here, the colors were perfect for coloring the chevron image, from Oh, Hello, with Stampin' Write markers.  


Here, I used Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral and So Saffron.  My trusty Stamp-a-ma-Jig was just the ticket for lining up each chevron as well as the sentiment.  


I was on a roll with the markers so I added one more colored chevron to the inside and added another sentiment from Oh, Hello.  We made a stepped up version of this card in one of my stamp clubs today and we had so much fun adopting British accents with the phrases in this set!  Adding in my personal favorite..."Hello, lovely"!  We have so much fun, love hanging out with my stamp club friends! :)

And, I hope you've enjoyed hanging with me today.  Do go check out the awesome projects from the rest of The Paper Players team and consider playing along with us before the challenge ends on Friday, March 22nd at Noon (PDT)

Nance, this is such a fun take on the sketch! I haven't bought this set but I want that one stamp so bad; the patterns in it are so awesome and it looks so cool inked up like you did here!

love the chevron stamps and their colors, so C&S, but packs a lot of "Wow" factor!
