Well here is a question for you… is this card made from Designer Series Paper or stamped images?
Well, it is acually the most gorgeous Designer Series Paper, coloured in using the Stampin’ Blends, Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam. Isn’t it pretty! The images are printed in a soft grey, like Smoky Slate, and take the colour really well. Because the images are already shaded it is even easier to colour in becuase you know where the shadows and highlights should be.
I used another sheet of the paper to add a contrast to the bottom, and some of the Lustrous Grey Granite ribbon to hide the join. I thought the leaf stamp from the Forever Fern set would co-ordinate beautifully, so stamped it in Smoky Slate and coloured it in Soft Sea Foam to match my card. Can you also see that I have heat embossed one of the In Good Taste Elements in silver, as a little something extra, behind my sentiment?
It is actually the first time I have tried this, but am so pleased with how it turned out. Now I can have metallic looking leaves to add to all of my projects!
I hope you like my Designer Series Paper or stamped images card, and that it inspires you to get that paper out and add some colour to it, you might be surprised with how lovely it looks.
