Paper Players Challenge 50: Kind Thanks!

Here it is, my first post as a Summer Design Team member for the Paper Players!  I am so looking forward to this summer!

Our challenge theme this week is Kind Thanks.  I am highlighting some new products here too...makes it really fun!

The image is from the new hostess set Faith in Nature. I stamped the image in versamark, then embossed in black on watercolor paper.  I outlined the image lines with marker and blended with my aquapainters.  This is definitely my favorite technique for watercoloring.

The background was also stamped in versamark and embossed with iridescent ice.  Tough to see in my photo but it is a bit sparkly!

I also used a new punch....and some new colors....Lucky Limeaid and Pool Party.  

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my sample!  Please play along with us this week at The Paper Players !
