It's Sunday, so it's time for another fun challenge over at the Paper Players! This week LeAnne is our hostess and she has put together this lovely combo to try:
I also used the sketch over at The Sweet Stop for inspiration:I couldn't help but go with a holiday card with these colors. I tried to make a "guy" card at first...but it just wasn't working out. So Christmas it was! I used the Bright Hopes stamp set and dug around my stash of DSP to get the matching colors. (Note to self...buy more Always Artichoke DSP and ribbon as the selection in my craft room is limited, for some reason)
The image was first inked up in Versa-Mark and then again in Always Artichoke Classic ink. After stamping the image I heat embossed it for some added shine. I also heat embossed the sentiment in Riding Hood Red. Every layer is sponged and the main image was distressed with the Color Spritzer Tool and a Crumb Crumb Cake marker. It made the image pop a bit more then plain ol' card stock. I used pearls to accent the card and topped off the bow with an Antique Brad. It really was a pretty easy card to complete, although you would never know from the 2- 1/2 hours it took me to put it together. Ugh!!
Sure hope you will hop on over to the Paper Players site and play along this week! You have until Friday 11/18/2011 to link up a project. Be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team to see what they have created for inspiration with these fun colors:
