How many times has it happened to you - to have the most beautiful paper but not having the will to cut it or punch it? Well I've have this Papermania sheet for 3 months now and it is so gorgeous I did not want to cut it. But today I had the courage to use it, lol. I made two cards with it. One for the PBSC and the other Sillymonkeys DT Call. Below you will see the one I made for the PBSC Challenge. I will post the other later on this week.
Double Sided Vertical Stripes by Papermania- PMA 4150o
I used another cardstock in pale blue but don't have the code)
Bicycle Hedgie - Penny Black
Sizzix Stamps (Do not have the code)
Black Staz on ink
Faber Castel Water Colours
Pebble Ink Shimmers Chalk
Blue Sakura Gel Pen
Blue Felt Flowers - Design Objectives
Sizzix Die Cutting Machine
Zig Zag Frame - Die
- Stamp Sentiment, flower and grass inside. To stamp the grass I used the masking technique - first stamp the flower, cover with a piece of card stock and then stamp the grass. Colour in using water colours.
- Cut the striped paper to cover the card blank. Die cut the frame from plain chipboard and then die cut pale blue card stock.
- Cut a rectangle slightly smaller than frame, colour in using water colours adding accents with the gel pen and chalk.
- Once ready stick to cardstock using double sided tape.
- Embellish with flowers.
