The Paper Players challenge...

Happy Monday stampers! Hope you had a good Sunday.  I came across a cool color challenge from The Paper Players that I wanted to try out.  Late last week I received my Stampin' Success magazine and in it I read about a cool technique that I wanted to try out.  In three easy steps you can create a cool background.

First step, you gently drag ink pads over card stock. I used baja breeze, island indigo and a little bit of crumb cake. I think it looks cool.

Second step, depending on which stamp set you use (the magazine suggested a background stamp), you ink it up and then, third step; stamp onto the decorated background.  I instead chose the sentiment from You're Amazing and inked it in rich razzleberry. I also sponged the edges with rich razzleberry. So what do you think of this technique? I like it and can't wait to try it out with other colors.

The base of my card is rich razzleberry and I layered the island indigo DSP from Summer Smooches onto the baja breeze card stock. I also layered my apothecary framelits onto crumb cake card stock.  

So make sure you check out the other creations at The Paper Players blog, lots of inspiration. Thanks again for stopping by.  Hope your Monday is great. Until next time.

  2. I agree, great technique! The sponging and piercing make your project all the more vintage and lovely. Thanks for sharing your creation with us at The Paper Players!
