365 Cards Day 207 "DIY Patterned Paper"
The challenge today at 365 Cards was to make your own patterned paper. OK here we go...
I used a patterned paper from a My Mind's Eye stack for the background paper and then handcut a label (I'd love to have some of the label dies that are around but alas, I cannot afford them- so I make up my own and cut them out by hand! A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do ;) Then I stamped a Tim Holtz -Flights of Fancy Clear stamp on the label in indigo ink and sponged the lighter blue over the whole label. After it was all dry, I stamped the sentiment. It is currently my favorite sentiment stamp- so cute. I cut some deep brown card stock with my Martha Stewart double scallop punch, topped it with another patterned paper from the same stack and tied on a button with my allllll time favorite-twine!
I am so excited to have done two challenges in two days! I love them and am completely addicted.
