A good Sunday evening to everyone, Kirsten here. I hope you've had a great weekend. Crafting wise, mine has been rubbish. I have been well & truly deserted by the muse of creativity. I managed to make three, very simple, cards today, using the CWC Botanicals collection.
I hadn't used these papers before. They're very smooth & have a glossy finish & the great thing about the white papers is that they can be coloured. I tried Distress inks & stains, Spectrum Noir pens & watercolour pens & they all worked.
I don't have a butterfly die, so I stamped a Kanban butterfly stamp twice on the reverse of the paper & cut around the images. Then I coloured the flowers with SN pens blended Mustard Seed & Spiced Marmalade DIs over the top.
This paper is from the other paper pack in the collection. The flowers are Kanban die cuts. I filled the centre of them with glitter glue.
No matter what I tried, I couldn't get a good photo of this card. I covered the white paper with Weathered Wood DI & it looks great. Colouring the paper doesn't obliterate the shine, so this is now a beautiful silver grey.
I found a little piece of Core'dinations card that went with the card & die cut the scallops, which I then cut into & layered three together with a brad to make the flowers.
That's if for today, thanks for looking. I hope to be back on Tuesday with something else to show you. Until then, take care.
