Well we are on Week 8 of the Billie and Monika background and or no designer paper challenge between ourselves.
Monika from Creative with Monika and I are doing a different background and or no designer each Monday and without die cuts.
This week it was my choice and I saw this awesome card by Julie Campbell awhile back and drooled.. I loved it and said ok this will be our next challenge for us to try. You can see Julie's card at the link above.
Thanks Julie Campbell for the inspiration.
This is my card. I used Kuretake paints and just added colors till I got the effect I wanted. I wanted mine to be a little darker.. ok a lot darker.. I then added some splatters. I then took out my Paper trey ink retro vol. 3 that I used last week for the diamonds and used some of the other borders in the set to get the design on all of the papers. I used ranger inks to cover white paper and then black ink to stamp the designs. I cut the green, but I did punch the circle.. I tried to cut one but it was not going to be round no matter what I tried. I used the Paper trey ink sentiment Harvest berries. The little hearts are from Simon Says stamp set. The stitching is faux.. I took my hole punch and just pierced the paper and then took a blue pen and ran it from hole to hole to give a thread stitch look. I am very pleased with the way it came out and I really am excited to be using stamps and making my own designer papers and backgrounds.
I hope you head over to Monika's blog and see her card and leave her some love.
