Extra Whip for The Paper Players
For my card I used one of my few Art Impressions ladies stamps that was made just for fall.
I began by stamping these fun gals and coloring with Copic markers similar to the challenge colors, plus a warm gray to ground them and, while it's hard to see in the photos a light tan color for the background. Next I stamped the sentiment in brown pigment ink and heat set with clear embossing powder. After using oval dies to cut out the image and sentiment. I used metallic pearlescent paint in Orange Copper around the rim of both and then set aside to dry.
For the background, a piece of peacock card was stenciled using the Wonky Dots stencil and Versamark ink. I actually was aiming for a more subtle background but I do like the playfulness of the big dots. When that was done the panel was adhered to a 5"x7" ivory card base, then a strip of patterned paper was added for some additional interest. The main image and sentiment were then adhered with foam tape and some final touch was to add some blue-green crystals for the "glitter" portion of the challenge.
