A Paper Players Challenge!


I decided to try another Sketch Challenge today! I'm kinda liking this! Once I can be decisive enough to pick a set and the colors I want to use, the Sketch Challenge really helps guide the card.

So this Sketch Challenge, PP31 is from The Paper Players. I kinda switched up the orientation of it to fit the bird.


The set I used is the new Nature Walk from the Occasions Mini Catalog. And I used the set, You're a Gem, (also from the Occasions Mini) for the "Enjoy" and "Friend" sayings. I used Marina Mist, Soft Suede, and Early Espresso.


I tried to get a close-up to show the Shimmer spray, but it's kinda hard to see!


Thanks for checking it out!

Oh, this is so beautiful! Love the new set (it is my favorite from the new mini)! The choice of background papers and textures evoke that natural feeling and the way you utilized the sketch is perfect! Thanks for playing with us at The Paper Players!
