Paper Players #49

DSCF6491-1

Happy Sunday before Memorial Day! It has been a wonderful weekend so far, I hope you are enjoying yours! Today the Paper Players have an “Anything Goes” challenge for you---just what it says, you can do anything you like!


I chose to do a CAS card by watercoloring the Fabulous Florets set:

DSCF6492-1

This is a smaller card than normal; it measures about 3 1/2” across; I embossed the flowers in White Craft ink and white embossing powder, then watercolored them with Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry ink. I fussy-cut the flowers out around the corner of the Crumb Cake panel, which qualifies this card for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge 69 as well! I wheeled the Melon Mambo panel with the Music Notes wheel and although it is difficult to see, I embossed the floral border from Vintage Vogue along the bottom of the card:

DSCF6493-1

DSCF6495-1

The ribbon is some retired Melon Mambo, tied in a simple knot and the sentiment is from Style Beautiful. I love the simplicity of this! I hope you will play along with us---choose one of your favorites, we’ll take anything!

Beautiful card. What a wonderful job you did on those flowers. I didn't have much success when I tried that technique. It was quite a while ago now so maybe, thanks to your inspiration, I should try it again. I do love the look. TFS
