I needed a birthday card for a friend, it turned out really lovely so thought I would show you.
I began with a card blank and added a small square of kraft card to the centre.
I then coloured some more card using Brusho pigments. Find out about them HERE. This was added over the kraft card, leaving a small border.
I had been having a tidy up in my chaotic art room, and came across some collage sheets that i had made ages ago. They were heavily textured, with bits stuck on them and layers of paint, stenciling and stamping. but I was stuck as to what I could do with them. Literally to get them out of the way I die cut them all up into birds,flowers,leaves and hearts. All dies from paperArtsy.
I also cut some skinny strips from the edges of the papers.
and began to build up the flowers.
adding a leaf at the bottom.
I had enough to make 5 cards..
I sprayed Adirondack ink onto some envelopes and added some text stamping.
Using colours to match the cards..
I put them aside, and when I looked at them again I decided them needed a little sentiment, so added a different one to each card.
I really like these cards, pretty much made from leftovers. I almost threw out the collaged papers, they look so much better at die cuts.
