Paper Players 88

DSCF0054

Happy Sunday!  Ann has a wonderful Paper Players sketch for us today:

I love this sketch!  I hope it will inspire you too! Here’s what I came up with:

PP88 - LeAnne new

I used the Rosemary image from Herb Expressions, stamped in Stazon on watercolor paper and watercolored with Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi.  I gave it some “antiquing” with the waterspot image from French Foliage in Sahara Sand and antiqued all the edges with SS as well.  I added a little felt border cut with the Tasteful Trim die, and the little spade is from a retired set called Garden Pleasures (thanks, Wanda, for that idea!).  The piece of First Edition DP, which I grabbed out of my folder willy-nilly, just happened to have information on herbals!!  A nice tie-in!  Here are a couple closeups:

The first popsicle of the season!

LeAnne,
I just love your card! The sketch is lovely and you've really made wonderful use of it with all of the detail. Love the cutout and popped up trowel. And your little one is growing up so quickly! Still as adorable as ever! Did she give grammie a taste of her popsicle? So sweet!

Cheers!
Jennifer

LeAnne, love your card! That background paper you used, the floral image and that little garden tool. Just the perfect card for this sketch.

Wish I could say I had my first popsicle of the season, but I think I am on like #10.

GAH!! Leanne, this is just too stinkin' CUTE! Love your sweet little spade tied on the bottom and the vivid watercoloring topped off with the splatter ( I SO need that stamp! ) Thanks for playing along this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments!

So many pretty details and I love the watermarks and your soft coloring, too!! Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

LeAnne - I absolutely adore this card. The colours are so nice and soft with that image - and I especially love that little spade tied on. Great touch!

Darlene Gabriel said...

Oh yes!!! The first popsicle of the season - sure to be many more. Looks like she is enjoying it.
Very pretty card - love the softness of the blues. The "antiquing" looks great. How fun that the piece of First Edition DP was about herbs - maybe not so willy-nilly after all??
