Paper Players Challenge #6
I am so happy to have finally completed a card for the Paper Players Challenge over at Always Playing with Paper. This colour combo really said 'flowers' to me. And so I pulled out my new Level 1 hostess set 'Because I Care'. I stamped 2 images and carefully cut out parts of it and popped them up on glue dots to add dimension. This is kind of a simple 3D Tole, or paper tole. Many people ask me how I get my scallop trim edge and corner punches to line up so easily, and so I have made a little tutorial on my technique. Click here for the tutorial.
Now back to my card. The image was stamped in Basic Grey on Very Vanilla. Then I coloured in the blossoms with an Aquapainter and Rose Red ink and the leaves with Certainly Celery and an Aquapainter. Then I mounted it on a frame of Rose Red cardstock (again click here for a tutorial) Then the whole thing was mounted on a piece of textured Very Vanilla cardstock. I have included the untouched photo below to show the detail from the Vintage Wallpaper textured impression folder for the Big Shot which made this texture. Next I added a Certainly Celery ribbon (retired). The sentiment was stamped in Rose Red and mounted on a piece of Basic Grey cardstock. Finally, the whole thing was mounted on Certainly Celery cardstock.
