The Paper Players Challenge #65

Hey Everyone

One of the good things about being on holidays is that I get a chance to enter my craft room and give it a good clean out.  I even managed to label a few things.  As I was cleaning up I came across this retired Cottage Wall DSP that I used a few weeks ago for a challenge.  I might have been saving it for a rainy day, but I figure if I don’t use it now -when will I use it?  I’ve used it today for the sketch challenge at The Paper Players.  This is their sketch that I’ve based my card on.

Would you believe that when I heard Pale Plum was retiring last year I brought 3 packets of cardstock, but not the ink? Not sure what I was thinking.  So to give two of the flowers the appearance of Pale Plum I stamped Orchid Opulence onto a scrap piece, to use up alot of the ink, and then stamped onto this card without re-inking – it really dulled down the colour.  I then stamped over the top of them with Rich Razzleberry.

This card was chosen as A Cut Above at The Paper Players Challenge this week.

Thanks for taking a look.
