Gently Falling for Paper Players #171

Hello there! This week at the Paper Players, the always awesome Ann Schach is our Hostess with a fab color challenge to try: Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip and Tangerine Tango. Perfect combo for the fall season, isn't it?

It just so happens that this color combo is found in the Sweater Weather DSP from the SU Holiday Catalog, so that was where I started. Then I inked up the Gently Falling stamp set that I recently received and created this fall birthday card. I wanted a distressed look so I sponged some ink on the edges and used the Color Spritzer Tool to add some extra shading. I wanted to rough up the edges of the DSP but had already stuck it down when I remembered to do it. Oops! So just imagine that detail is there. Haha! All of the layers are popped up for added dimension.
Please join us over at the Paper Players The challenge is open through Friday, November 15th, 2013 at Noon (PDT). Stop by and say hello to the rest of the Design Team to see what they are sharing this week.

  5. AnneMarie, I love how you added color to your sentiment panel- it is like it blends right in but still stands out boldly- kinda like being a gentle giant. And, isn't that bow just the cat's meow! Such a great card!

  8. Love this, AM!! The leaves are gorgeous - I wish the real ones hung around here a bit longer. :( They are all gone and it looks bare here. :( Hope you had a wonderful birthday! Lexi says hello to Emmitt!!!
