Well, this is pretty exciting -
Here I am making my first blog entry for Pretty Paper Studio as part of the CT!!
I do hope you will enjoy my ideas and keep coming back!
It's February, so my theme is "Valentine" - and I am showing you 4 ideas. Yes, these cards are Valentines but they could equally well be used for an anniversary or some other occasion.
February 14 is pretty important to me - my husband and I were married on Valentine's Day 37 years ago!!
Card #1 uses matting of various papers, a digi I have had so long I can't remember it's origin and a heart shaped treat cup containing 'confetti'.
Two images of Card #2 - a waterfall using 'masculine' colours and an amusing sentiment.
Card #3 is an easel card - I have been making lots of easel cards recently, usually based on a square shape - but the shape of this one is thanks to Emma Goddard in the UK.
I wanted the scallops to be wave-like...
The matting papers used are Bluebell from MY MIND'S EYE found here
The background behind the fish is distressed with a watermark and then overstamped in black.
Two images of card #4 - these feature the triple stamping technique - come back tomorrow to see the tutorial showing you how to make them...
