It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! It's color challenge week and the lovely Laurie has brought us these fun color!
For my card design I was inspired by the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.
Laurie's colors threw me at first but then I realized how great they would be for a Christmas card, and there's nothing like getting started early! I decided to use a pretty background stamp with leaves and berries, then layering the sentiment and horizontal piece at the bottom of the panel.
The image was stamped then colored with Copic markers in colors similar to those for the challenge. I kept the coloring very simple as these images are pretty small. Once complete the panel was trimmed down to 3.5 x 4.75 inches and layered on slightly larger panels of Real Red and Basic Gray.
I used a sentiment from an old Hero Arts monthly kit, stamping in black and die cutting with stitched circle die. It was adhered to the front then a strip of red card was added with foam tape. Then the entire thing was added to the card base with foam tape. To have a bit more of a festive feel to the card, sparkle was added to the red strip and all the red berries with an aqua shimmer pen. Last but not least, a few gold glitter crystals were adhered.
Thanks so much for visting, I really appreciate it! Be sure to use the link above and check out all the beautiful creations by the rest of the DT and hopefully join us this week!
