Here is a contribution to the The Paper Players Challenge:

This week we have a color challenge:

As you can see, the Island Indigo is represented in the ribbon.   I added Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake directly to a stamping block to add color.  I brayered a larger stamping block with the Rich Razzleberry and stamped with that.  

The Baja Breeze streams of color were created by putting a few rubber bands aound my brayer, inking up and adding the color over the whole panel.  I used the spots stamp from SU's Paper Pumpkin to add the Crumb Cake spots.  There is a bit of washi tape from This and That bundle and the Stamp Sets used are Postage Due and Affection Collection.  The "postage stamps" were punched  with the SU Postage Stamp Punch.


  1. Diane, This is a very artisitc, unique collage. I love the texture from the rubber bands, and the card is balanced in color and weight. Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week!

    1. Brian, thank you for those words. I find them encouraging. I was hesitatnt to post this card because it was not created along traditional methods. The inks and stamps were placed by feelings the colors inspired. Thank you.

  2. Diane, I love this card. I see the beautiful Washi Tape...very strategically placed, and the brayer idea is very clever. Thanks for sharing your technique.

  3. This is so cool...I love the background you created! And of course, you must know that I love those postage stamps!!! Thanks for sharing this with us this week at the Paper Players!

  4. Beautiful, Diane! You did a great job incorporating the colors. I really like the brayering technique. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  5. Diane, this is an absolutely gorgeous way to showcase the challenge colors along with that fantastic brayering technique. That is very cool...I'm excited to try it out. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players and thanks for the creative inspiration! :)
