The Paper Players 344:

Happy Sunday all and Happy Mother's Day!  I haven't been around much this week as I have been spending every moment I can either Spring cleaning our yard or our house.  I am rather exhausted and feel like I have been run over by a bus.  Thankfully it is raining today so I have no choice but to enjoy some crafting =)

This week at The Paper Players, Claire has a beautiful Color Challenge:

I had SO much fun colouring my card!  I clear heat embossed the flowers and leaves, coloured them with Zigs, fussy cut, and adhered them to my card base.  I wanted the background stamps to have a more muted feel, so I stamped them with ink, then used my water brush to give them a washed out look.

Card Ingredients:

Simon Says Stamp Best Mom EverClearly Besotted Fresh Flowers
Die cuts:  My Favorite Things Blueprints 13
Frosting: Wow Embossing Powder ClearTim Holtz WaterbrushCanson XL Watercolor paperTsukineko Versafine Onyx Black, Zig Clean Color Real Brushes
Stampin' Up! inks

Please be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the team at The Paper Players, leave some love, and play along!!

Cheers all!

Deanne, this is gorgeous. I love the bright colors of the flowers and the more muted leaves. the little splotches on the base add just the right amount of depth. Stunning card

Such a fresh and delightful creation...those colors look awesome with those florals! And you will be so happy when that cleaning is all done...a fresh house is wonderful too!
This is so pretty Deanne - I don't know why it didn't occur to me to blend the red and orange, your flowers look amazing! The subtle background dots are a nice addition too.
