Cards (My last post as Guest Designer)

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 :)

Isha,
Thanks for sharing your wonderful designs. I love the two card you created and will try that stamping through the stencil. It's so funny how we never think of the obvious, but you did.

Gorgeous! I really like the soft look of the stenciled background with the detail of the stamps you used. Best of luck in the future!
