Quiet Meadow for Paper Players 551

 I was intrigued by the sketch at The Paper Players this week. 

It served as inspiration for another outing of the Quiet Meadow bundle. I love the versatility of the dies - so many things to do with them - and the images and sentiments of the stamp set. Sadly, I had need of a sympathy card this week after the death of a friend's parent and this is what influenced the colour choices and the sentiment.

Having said that there are so many things to do with the dies, I have opted to leave them plain white and 'do' things to the background instead. 

I started with a piece of Fresh Freesia and used blending brushes to add colour: Gorgeous Grape at the bottom and Fresh Freesia towards the top. I used a water painter to drip some water over it to get some spots where the colour lifted. Not so easy to see are the splatters of Wink of Stella that I tapped out over it but they add some shimmery interest in real life. 

Then I added in some stamped images from Quiet Meadow: splatters in Fresh Freesia, the text stamp and some tiny flowers in Gorgeous Grape. 

If the embossing folder in unfamiliar to you, watch out for it in the July-December Mini Catalogue, open on 3 August. It is the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder. I'm in love with it! 💜
