Greetings, Stampers! It's Sunday, time for another Paper Players challenge, and this week the hostess is me! It's a Clean and Simple challenge with the option of using silver or gold on your project. I have all sorts of metallic goodies in my stash and had fun pulling them all out and deciding what to use.
I went in a bit of a different direction than my normal style as I wanted the beautiful papers to take center stage. I used Gold Soiree Designer Paper (LOVE this stuff), Gold Foil Paper and Gold Glimmer Paper.
Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch was perfect for what I had in mind. I eliminated the three dots though, as they got totally lost on the patterned paper.
I struggled a little bit with the white panel. I tried background stamping and I tried embossing, but everything looked to busy. In the end I decided to leave it plain white. I used a piece of retired textured paper to add just a little more interest.
