Last month I went to my card makers club in Brisbane, and the shop had on sale Paper Artsy stamps at 60% off. I can tell you I tried to not surcumb (sp?) to temptation. I really, really……..REALLY tried. But that little plastic bag got in my hands, then I was at the counter with my purse open. (Guilty blush – tee hee)
I had in mind the papers I was going to use once I got home and started to ink up. The papers I bought months ago (eyes rolling), and I believe it is K&Company. I stamped the woman with Creamy Caramel (SU) onto Very Vanilla (SU) CS. I created a mask for her head, then sponged the background of the image with Blue Bayou (SU) ink. Image was then layered onto a tag to match the papers. The rose from the Wild Roses (SU) SS was stamped in blue and caramel, cut out and popped up on demensionals.
For the card base I tore a piece of double sided patterned paper,cut narrower than the card, and adhered to CS so both sides were visible. In the gap between the papers I stamped the border from the Paper Artsy set in blue ink. At this stage I felt it needed more stamping, so I used the leaf stem from Embrace Life SS (SU), and stamped that onto the background as well. Lastly I used a snippet of the Blue Bayou ribbon at the top of the tag.
Well, there you have it folks. A collaged card
