Paper Players 84

Monday, February 27, 2012

I'm happy to say that I was very productive in my stamp room this weekend.  That doesn't always happen so it's reason to celebrate in my book!  One of the cards I made was for the Paper Players sketch challenge this week.

I've got to confess that once I had this card made I realized that I forgot one layer.  I think I was so focused on getting the images stamped and arranged that I completely forgot about the vertical layer down the middle.  But I spent so much time fussing over the images that I decided to post what I had anyway.  Heartfelt apologies to LeAnne, who designed the sketch.

I finally inked up my Fresh Vintage stamp set after seeing so many gorgeous cards made with it.  For the center image I colored directly on the stamp with Baja Breeze, Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz markers.  The background paper is from Everyday Enchantment.  My"ribbon" is actually some crochet thread that I passed around the cardstock a few times.  I adhered a Verve stamp punched with my Word Window punch on top of it.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love your version Jen and I'm sure LeAnne will be delighted that you interpreted her sketch in your own way.

Oh my goodness, no need to apologize, I didn't even notice the missing layer because I was so enthralled by your lovely use of those stamps & paper! BEAUTIFUL! I love that little sentiment too! I am so happy you played with my Paper Players sketch this week!

Hi Jen - I think your card is just lovely. That is one of my favorite patterns in this SAB paper - love the red and blue together.
P.S. its nice to see that I wasn't the only one who missed a layer in the card. It made me feel better to see that someone else did it too :o)

Crisp, clean and full of "Jen-Style"! Love all of the detail in that center image and how the center square is a wee bit larger then the other two. Great interpretation of the sketch! So glad you joined us this week at the Paper Players! :)
