Paper Players Color Week

This week it's all about color at The Paper Players Challenge! Laurie has chosen eggplant, tangerine, gray and black for our color palette and I decided to add those colors to what I consider a neutral background of kraft! I colored the images with Zig watercolor brush markers and because I white embossed the images, it worked pretty well though I couldn't get much shading accomplished. 

I initially added 3 die cut layers of the sentiment using black cardstock. It just didn't flow with the rest of the card so I cut one more layer of white and offset it a bit. Then I was happy with the look!

STAMPS: Hello Lovely (Concord and 9th).
PAPER: Kraft, True Black, White (Papertrey Ink); Orange Zest (My Favorite Things).
INK: Versamark.
DIES: Grateful Leaf Dies (Concord and 9th); Blueprint 27 (My Favorite Things).
MISC: Pure White embossing powder by Altenew.

Wanda this is stunning - the white embossing balances the bold colours beautifully and the offset sentiment works a treat. Such a great way to use this week's colours - I love it!
