Here are my three cards... each one uses the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper with its wonderful black and white graphics.
The first is an ultra-simple layout.
|A hand-colored card for someone lets them know how much they are cared for.|
|Stampin' Blends are so easy to work with!|
The second card was the result of an unexpected discovery.
|A bonus technique!|
When I was assembling the first card I turned over the completed colored layer to adhere it and this is what I found...
... the Blends had bled through to the back making a lovely watercolor-like background "behind" the black leaf graphics! So I quickly colored another section of paper ( I love the coloring process so I that was great with me!) and cut it up in squares. I rotated the pieces and mounted it on a black layer to make the leaves more prominent.
|The sentiment is heat embossed with copper on vellum. I also added a tiny bow tied with Copper Trim.|
The last card is another simple layout. I used the lines of the DSP to created a fun pattern with the itty-bitty cupcake image and the Tutti-Frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins.
|A fun secondary pattern!|
|Very fast with the adhesive already on the sequins.|
