Paper Players Challenge #132

My challenge entry today is a colour challenge from the Paper Players.

My card uses Summer Starfruit as a base with a white mat. I have punched the bottom of the mat with my Scallop Border Punch. I then added a layer of Print Poetry DSP in Midnight Muse, with the same Scallop Border, then added a wide strip of white, scalloped again and embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder.

I used my new Ovals Framelit dies to cut Primrose Petals then a sheet of white card patterned using the shaving foam technique and Summer Starfruit and Primrose Petals re-inkers. It's dead simple. Just squirt shaving foam on a plate, add a few drops of re-inker, swirl slightly with a spoon handle, press on the cardstock, remove, wipe clean and you are left with this fantastic swirly effect! I then stamped the image from Just Believe.

The sentiment is embossed in white and a few pearls have been added for a bit of 'Bling'.

I hope you like it! Don't forget you can buy everything you need to make these cards from me.

Come back tomorrow and see what else I have to share!
