Paper Players 99 Color Challenge

A bright and happy color combination from The Paper Players this week!  Just the right thing to chase away the dreary rainy days here.  I knew I wanted to try the Spotlight technique with this new stamp, Pleasant Poppies.

  • This stamp is really big! I kept the overall card pretty simple, just stamping the upper half of the image on whisper white, 4" by 5 1/4" in basic gray.
  • Because I like a heftier weight card, I mounted the layer on a piece of white cardboard (I used the cardboard that comes with the packages of DSP).
  • I inked and stamped the right hard part of the image on another piece of whisper white, and colored in the challenge colors of Lucky Limeade and Melon Mambo using a blender pen.
  • I also used a glitter pen in the middle of the flowers for a little sparkle.
  • The image is a 2 1/4" circle, that I mounted on dimensionals.
  • The sentiment was so easy using the Itty Bitty Banners set and matching framelits.

Inside I simply stamped part of the image in basic gray in the corner.

Fun..just wished my coloring was better!  I may just try the same card on watercolor paper and aquapainters...

Thanks for looking!
