CPS #102 and PaperTrey

The party continues at Card Positioning Systems blog and there are more sponsors this week and more prizes. The sponsor that I was able to play with for this week was PaperTrey ink. WOWIE! Check them out if you haven't.
There were TWO things that totally stood out when I first opened my package.
1. The weight and feel of the cardstock. It is thick and velvety
2. The completely fun and unexpected color combo. I wouldn't have put these colors together and yet it was just plain fun to work with the papers, stamp pads, ribbons and stamps - Ripe Avocado, Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate and Vintage Cream.
I just had to create some cards to show off these supplies. This first card, above and below, is my card using the CPS sketch 102 for this week.
I stamped the flower, one each in two different sizes, colored them with Copic markers, coated some of the petals with Clear Paper Glaze by Aleene’s®/Tulip for a 3-D and epoxy look and then cut them both out.
For the fun dot design on my card base, one of the sets of dots is the outline of a dot, there is another set that is solid dots. I stamped both and then coated the solid dots with the same Clear Paper Glaze – Aleene’s®/Tulip.
For this card, I stamped the outline dots stamp with the Raspberry Fizz ink and stamped solid dots on the brown paper with the Vintage Cream ink. This kit came with stamps of dots of many sizes and lots of word choices.
For this card, the flower was stamped repeatedly over the cream colored cardstock with the Ripe Avocado ink and over that I stamped some mini dots in the same ink. Then each flower was colored in with several shades of Copic Markers.
A portion of each of the flowers were accented with a Metallic Pearl 3-D fashion paint.
This card is very simple. I stamped two different sizes of the dots on the cream colored cardstock and then added the papers in strips with the word phrase in the middle section.
