Hiya friends! It's another week with The Paper Players where Jaydee has an awesome sketch for us:
This is such a great sketch--can be dressed up or down, clean or layered...whatever suits your fancy. For me, I landed somewhere in the middle with my take on it:
I thought the wide expanse of background was perfect to feature some of our gorgeous designer paper. Here, I've used one of my favorite patterns from Sweet Sorbet DSP--a Sale-a-Bration freebie. The colors are so pretty together--Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit--and they really pop on the black background.
I used the Needlepoint embossing folders that hadn't seen the light of day in awhile--I like the texture they add to the Pistachio Pudding and Summer Starfruit banners. I did some tone-on-tone stamping with an image from Petal Parade on the Crisp Cantaloupe banner and finished it all off with a Tea Lace doily and Silver Baker's Twine.
All the images in Petal Parade are so much fun to stamp with--they really lend themselves to layering or collage stamping. Sassy Salutations adds just the right amount of whimsy to the inside. I know that the rest of the Design Team really rocked this sketch, so head on over to the Paper Players and have a look-see. Then come back and join us before the challenge ends on Friday, February 28th at Noon (PST). If you're interested, all the supplies I used for this card are in the table below--with links! Thanks for stopping by today, friends...
