Hello there! I'm here (a wee bit late) with my card for the Paper Players challenge this week. The always awesome Sandy Mathis is our hostess this week with a Fall Theme Challenge. As it is currently, 100 degrees here in South Texas, I am very much in the mood for fall to arrive...SOON! It's just too hot!
For my card, I pulled out the Lovely as a Tree stamp set. This is one of those stamp sets that it took me forever to finally break down and purchase but I'm SO glad I did. I decided to ink up the trees with my Stampin' Write Markers to make them look "fall-ish". Here is the funny part, I stamped the image ONCE and really liked how it came out. Yup, one try. That is virtually unheard of for me. I usually have to stamp 3 or 4 times before I am happy with the results. I know I'm not the only one out there who does that! Haha!
I used the Sweater Weather DSP again which I know has Tangerine Tango in it...and I used a Cajun Craze marker and the Candy Dots Accents. *Gasp!* I just liked the way it looked, even if technically they aren't the same color. I sponged around the edges to rough it up a bit and added some texture from two different ribbons. All of the supplies I used are listed below.
Please join us over at the Paper Players! The challenge is open through Friday, September 6th, 2013 at Noon (PDT). Stop by and say hello to the rest of the Design Team to see what they are sharing this week.
