I have been wanting to participate in The Paper Players Challenges for several weeks now. Life just seems to get in the way. Today I had some time to prepare a Clean and Simple card using Polka Dots for The Paper Players Challenge PP541.
I just love the Quiet Meadow stamp set in the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog with the delicate flowers. My Grandmother used to have a fabulous flower garden in Kentucky. There were so many beautiful flowers but one of my favorite was the Sweet Williams. The flowers on this card look like the Sweet Williams, so that is how I colored them.
Here is a close up to show you the coloring more easily. I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Magenta Madness and Granny Apple Green. These come in a light and dark shade so you can make the image more 3D. I still need a little practice on the shading.
Here is the photo I referred to for my coloring. I have tried to grow Sweet Williams here in Arizona but the deer think they are dessert!
I really enjoyed making this card. I did use the Masking Technique to stamp the Polka Dot pattern around the Sweet Williams.
I have listed the supplies I used to make this card below. I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. If you do not already have a Demonstrator, I would love to be your Demonstrator.
