Carrying on practising my backgrounds - am trying to convince myself that I do not need a mountain of paper to make nice cards.
I have so much patterned paper some of it is so old I cannot remember where/when I bought it and looking at the cards I have made in the last few months I have used probably 4 small pieces of it. The time has come I think to get rid - if I could only find a home for it!
Although I still have some travelling this year it is not as intense as it has been so I took the plunge. It's nice to have something to look forward to arriving in the post every month and I have subscribed for both stamp and the matching dies.
This stamp is the March release called Cherry Blossom and I love it! I made a couple of cards with it and am sharing the first one which was just a basic design - but am pleased with how it turned out.
Stamped and heat embossed in white, then painted with DI's. I added a teeny bit of liquid pearls to the stamens of each blossom.
The circle frame was a left over!
I took some watercolour card and splashed/smooshed a bit of Spun Sugar on it and tucked it behind the die cut circle.
The sentiment is from the same set, cut from watercolour card and painted.
A few teeny pale green pearls and done!
