It was so wonderful to play around with stamps and paper again. I have really been blocked for the past couple of months, and getting to Lissie's, and seeing the color challenge the Paper Players had going on, my mojo returned. I haven't created a card, let alone participated in a challenge in forever. I pulled out a stamp set I've always loved, but never purchased, and got to work.
Let me tell you, there is some heavy duty coloring on that card! Not that I minded, though, since I find coloring so very soothing. :o)
I found the lanterns were a bit hard to see using Versamark alone, so I stamped in Versamark, then Poppy Parade, then hit it with the clear embossing powder and the heat gun. I'm pretty pleased with the results. :o)
At any rate, the challenge really got me motivated, and I wound up creating two other cards using the colors as well!
This card uses:
*Stamp Sets: "Kimono Kids", "So Many Sayings"
*Paper: Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
*Ink: Black Staz-On, Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizazz, Versamark
I'll post another one of the cards tomorrow--it is very different, quite CAS.
