The Paper Players

Claire has a great sketch for this week's challenge at The Paper Players! I tried to use some colors that aren't typical for me and ventured with Ocean Tides, Stormy Sea and Smoky Shadow from Ink to Paper. I also used a lighter green - Spring Moss - which is one I use often but not in this combo. The background panel is smooshed with the Ocean Tides, Stormy Sea and Smoky Shadow inks. Reminds me of a turbulent sea - haha!

I need to build up my sympathy card stash, so that's what led me to use this sentiment. The vertical element was a trimmed down version of the Border Bling: Diamonds die by Ink to Paper.

STAMPS: Dear Friend (Ink to Paper).
PAPER: Ocean Tides, Stormy Sea, True Black, Gentle Moss, Smoky Shadow; Ranger water color paper.
INK: Gentle Moss, Ocean Tides, Stormy Sea, True Black.
DIES: Border Bling: Diamonds, Dear Friend, Pierced Feature Frames (Ink to Paper).

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!   ~Wanda

Wanda, this is so pretty! I needed two sympathy cards this week! I wish this was in my stash. I love the soothing, calm colors and those gorgeous leaves. SO happy you joined my sketch challenge at The Paper Players this week!

Very cool...your "smooshing" has created a stunning background for your greenery! Lovely for a sympathy card! Thanks for playing with our sketch this week at the Players!

You should use that color combo more often, it is lovely and works so well for a sympathy card. And that smooshed background! Wow! Thanks for sharing your beautiful card with us at The Paper Players this week!

Lovely! It DOES look like a stormy sea - one to watch from the window of a shore-house! Perfect backdrop for your pretty leaves - and just right for a sympathy card. Thanks so much for sharing it with us this week at The Paper Players! :)
