Faith in Nature, PP262

Hi there, friends! This week at The Paper Players, Joanne is hostess with the mostess and she has a lovely color combo for us: Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon, and So Saffron. I really enjoyed working with this trio.

I pulled out some vintage stamp sets for this one. I thought the colors would look nice on the pear from Faith in Nature, and the flourishes on the Crumb Cake panel are from Elements of Style. I sell off a lot of my retired stamp sets but I've never been able to part with these two. I stamped the pear and sentiment in black Stazon and used sponge daubers to do my coloring.

  1. Thank goodness you didn't sell these sets! This is probably one of the prettiest cards I've ever seen!! It GORGEOUS! Your shading is just beautiful!

  2. Sandy your card is gorgeous!! I've always loved the 'Faith in Nature' set and it's not one I own. The shading and colouring on the pear is so realistic and with the stamping on the Crumb Cake panel and the background embossing, this card is so perfectly balanced. Way to go with this week's colours!

  3. Sandy, I adore this card! The stamp set is perfect for this beautiful creation! Your shading is perfect! XX

  4. Oh Sandy! This may be one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE cards ever - I love every element - adore the pear - the watercolor look - the print over top. STUNNING and WONDERFUL!

  5. Fabulous coloring job on the pear, Sandy! It looks so real. Beautiful watercolor wash in the background too. Way to make these colors look soft and serene!

  6. I love this set,too Sandy! I just dug it out to make a few cards with it myself. I love the sponged coloring,so pretty!

  7. Your card is so pretty Sandy! I love the way that your sponging turned out, perfect for the image. Great layering too! :)

  8. I love your take on the Paper Players color challenge Sandy. The pear image is still one of my favorites and you colored it gorgeously. Stunner!

  9. This is such a beautiful card, Sandy! I absolutely love the way you coloured the pear with sponge daubers -- it has such a nice, soft look to it, almost as though you coloured it with chalks! Your tone-on-tone stamping on the Crumb Cake panel looks great, too -- it adds interest but still lets the pear shine! :o)
