The Paper Players – PP405 – A Color Challenge from LeAnne

We have a Color Challenge over at The Paper Players!  This week, our challenge host, LeAnne, is asking us to create cards using the following Stampin’ Up colors: Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, So Saffron.  I do not have any Stampin’ Up inks so I have chosen three Distress inks close in color: Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, and Squeezed Lemonade.  I made a simple one-layer card (my favorite type of card!).  My first step was to entirely distress my card base in Squeezed Lemonade.  Then using an MFT stencil, I distressed the sunbeams in Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade. When dry, I stamped the sentiment.  Easy peasy.

Supplies: My Favorite Things Sun Ray, Technique Tuesday Bring on the Sun, Distress ink (Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade), Versafine Clair

    So warm and inviting! Great sentiment and I like the way the sun rays make it look as though there’s real depth in the card. One layer cards – very brave!
