The Paper Players

The Paper Players challenge is one layer cards. I really like to make them. Initially I found them impossible to make, but I have learned a lot from Heather Telford and just got better over time. 




Practice does help. I really like this card. My husband just shrugged his shoulders - it was too bland for him. But I find it quite expressive. I made it for a friend of mine, who had one of her good friends die and she emailed me today about it. So its kind of a sympathy card.

Materials: waterdrops - Ryn Tanaka stamps, sentiment - Hero Arts Leaf Print Cl395,

This is absolutely stunning! Love your masked off area and those water droplets look so real. Thanks for playing with us this week at The Paper Players!

I think this card is absolutely stunning! I love the gradation of the focal rectangle and realism of the drops of water.

It's a wonderful thinking of you/sympathy card. :o)

(I used to find one layer cards nigh on impossible as well, but have found they're all I'm making lately.)

You certainly have turned into a OLC pro, Cornelia! That Heather is amazing and such a good teacher! I love your poignant sympathy card very much!! (Thank you for your sweet get well wishes! I'm taking it pretty easy. It hurts more than I thought it would, so no Playhouse cleaning yet!)
