The Paper Players

***Just a friendly reminder that today is release day at Papertrey Ink where the new goodies will be available to buy at 10 pm ET! Also, PTI is having an Instagram hop at 2:00 where designers will be featuring the new products! Commenters will be eligible to win a gift card to the PTI store.

Good Tuesday morning! I have a quick card today using a leftover monstera die leaf from another project (you'll see more of that in another week). I love this large leaf and thought it would be a fun element to sub for the circle in Joanne's great sketch for the current Paper Players Challenge.

I smooshed Bundled Sage and Rustic Wilderness distress inks onto Bristol Smooth Surface (my newest fave combo of green inks!) then cut the leaf.

The patterned paper is from an old 6x6" patterned pack - Tropical Escape - from Stampin' Up that I've been hoarding. 

STAMPS: Tuck It: Sentiments (Papertrey Ink).
INK: Rustic Wilderness, Bundled Sage distress (Ranger).
PAPER: Tropical Escape 6x6" patterned paper by Stampin' Up; White (PTI); Bristol Smooth Surface.
DIES: Large Leaves Monstera (The Greetery); Simple Strips (Taylored Expressions); A2 Layers (Waffle Flower).
Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! Stay cool everyone! This week it's to get into the upper 90's in VA!  ~Wanda
