Sneak Peek of New Annual Catalog Using My Favorite Retiring Color

This week has been somewhat of a struggle for my creative  brain.  I had a bit of overload of information from OnStage last weekend and have spent most of the week processing everything I learned.  I am struggling with the dilemma of do I create with retiring products before they're gone, or do I play with my new products.  Well, this card let me do both.  :)

I chose to use the colors from The Paper Players Challenge this week which include two retiring colors, one of which has been my very favorite.  I guess it's almost time to choose another favorite.  In the meantime, you can expect to see a lot of Elegant Eggplant in the next month and a half.  I used my last piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock as the card base.  I added the Tranquil Tide in the DSP and coloring done on the leaves.  

Then, for the new . . .I used two of my new stamp sets from OnStage.  I used Animal Outing for most of the stamps on this  card, both outside and in.  I did stamp the bird from Pick a Pennant in Elegant Eggplant and colored it in using  Blender Pens.  The frog and leaves were colored in using a Tranquil Tide marker and blender pens.  It's always amazing to me what a blender pen can do if it just picks up a bit of ink.

 I entered the card the The Paper Players Colour Challenge: PP388.  Make sure you head over to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.

  1. What a fun way to combine old and new! Very fun creation! Thanks for playing with my purple challenge at the Paper Players!

  2. I'm so with you on overload from On Stage. Great way to use the Animal Outing set. Blender pens are amazing and so often overlooked in the catalogue. This is a sweet card and uses the colours prettily. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players.

  3. What a cute card, Angel! I love the way you stamped your images in "inchie" squares, makes for a very interesting layout. Thanks so much for sharing with us at The Paper Players!
