Rice Papers & Hobby House

Hi crafters, hope you're all well.
Today's offering is a card made with the lovely Imagination Crafts Rice Papers, Starlights and Hobby House Blossoms.

First of all I took my usual 7" x 7" card and cut a matt in black card, I then painted the edges with Imagination Crafts Black Starlights.

Next I cut a piece of White Super Smooth Card slighty smaller than the black to use as my background. 

I decided I wanted to use two different Rice Papers, one as the background and the other to use the elements

Rice Paper No 303 for elements

Rice Paper no: 174 for background.

Using 174 first I laid it on the background card and drew a pencil line as to where I wanted it frayed and crated the below elements

I then roughly painted the white card all over using Imaginations Crafts Silver Gold Starlights, I used a brayer for that so I could get the distressed look.

Once dried I randomly stamped the Crealies Crackle Stamp in the areas I knew the paper wouldn't cover.

I then pasted the papers in place and set aside to dry.

Next came the topper elements, I pasted the post card element from 303 onto some white card and cut around it neatly and did the same with the little blue butterfly.  I then tied some twine around the post card for a bit of texture and took some of the beautiful little Hobby House Cream Blossoms and pasted them over the rose on the card and punched out a few leaves from a punch in my stash. 

Here are the elements

I used 3D foam on the back of the post card and 3D the butterfly by just sticking the body and folding up the wings.

Here's the card again.


Thank you for dropping by today, see you soon.
