Hello everyone! Isha here sharing my 4th post as guest designer for January. Today, I have 2 cards for you using the wonderful products from eclectic Paperie. I made these cards, which have similar layout, yet are different in many ways
For my first card:
I started with sponging the chunky chevron stencil to give a soft and gradient effect. I then inked and stamped a text stamp randomly, while the stencil was still on my paper. I then stamped the poppy stamp onto a watercolor paper. Colored in a bit, keeping the colors soft and attached it to the card using some tissue paper and thread. To finish, I just added a bit of sparkle using the Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz to the flower.
For my 2nd. card, I kept almost the same layout. I used the mini burst stencil. I applied some white embossing paste to which, I added a bit of StazOn re-inker. Now this re-inker won't mix in fully and thus giving a beautiful shaded effect. Once this was dry, I cut some flowers using the pattern papers, inked the edges before assembling it. I diecut some leaves out of vellum. Finished the card with a sentiment banner and some thread.
I really enjoyed my month here at Eclectic Paperie! Happy crafting :)
