Paper Players color challenge




Hi everybody!

LeAnne is hosting this week at Paper Players and has a fun color challenge for us:



I predict we see some awesome cards this week....the colors are so vibrant and beautiful together. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

 I chose to use the Flower Fair bundle from Stampin Up. I just got it in the mail this week and was anxious to get it all inked up and play with it.

 It did take awhile to get it to stamp clean.  I followed some suggestions other stampers had and rubbed it with an eraser, then cleaned it really well with the stamp and scrub. I found it easier to work with the more I stamped. I think I will be using this set quite a bit, so it won't take long to get it worn in! I love all the different flowers.

I used the mossy meadow for the leaves, and lost lagoon and blackberry bliss for my flowers. I backed them on a white stitched rectangle, and then onto a piece of wisteria wonder card stock. The sentiment is stamped in black.

If you want to play along, hop on over to the Paper Players!
