Paper Players Colour Challenge from Ann and the Hero Arts Theme Challenge {Friendship}

Sunday is here and I am so excited about this week's Paper Players Challenge! The awesomely talented Ann Schach, has come up with the best colour combo EVER! I love my Poppy Parade, especially paired with Pool Party and Suede! Yum!

I decided to ink up a brand new stamp that I have had on my desk for about 2 weeks.  It is from Hero Arts and of course, I had to have it because it was a floral image!  It is called "Delicate Blossoms" and it is a clear set. I love how well it stamped in Memento Ink and then I coloured it with my Copics.  The background paper is from an Authentique 6x6 pack called "Gathering".  


The sentiment is one for a friend, which is this month's challenge over at Hero Arts, to create a themed project for friendship. This is for a friend whom I rarely see, so I thought a missing you sentiment would be appropriate. It is also from Hero Arts.

Stamps: Hero Arts "Delicate Blossoms"
Inks: Memento Ink Tuxedo Black, Copics, Soft Suede (for sentiment)
Paper: Poppy Parade, Gathering by Authentique, Whisper White, Confetti White (SU!)
Tools: Corner Rounder, Designer Label Punch

We hope that you will join the Paper Players Challenge this week!  Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations!
