I decided to grab one of the many pieces of 12×12 papers that was reasonably neutral and make a one sheet wonder.
No idea where this paper came from originally but it is a marbled and mottled effect with blue, teal and pink tones. So I teamed it with aqua, pink and brown.
I will sort out the cut instructions and post these later.
I also grabbed some glimmer paper and foiled cardstock to add into the mix.
Then I started making the cards up. I decided to keep to a theme and used the Art deco style stamps which were a magazine freebie a long time ago.
So here are the seven cards I made.
Layered pieces with the different coloured cardstock and the silver glimmer paper and then fussy cut two of the stamped images. Coloured both of them using Inktense blocks and a waterbrush. Stamped the sentiment in versamark and used white embossing powder.
Heat embossed the main image onto the paper and also the same with the single rose image onto the back panel. Then added colour with the distress oxides to give more definition to the bird. Also stamped and embossed the sentiment and mounted that onto the brown card too. I love this bird image so much.
Most of the one sheet wonder templates have a diagonal cut in them. I balanced this one with the diecut in the background.
I love the copper foil background I added with the elegant embossing.
I edged the patterned paper with both the stamp and a line of white embossing, then added the sentiment in the same. Next I added the flower image with some copper thread to add texture.
I went with a brighter pink for this one and grabbed this hot pink doily. It worked with the colouring on the flowers.
This one I went with lots of edging in black pen to give each panel a distinct edge. I also embossed the white panel with the embossing folder.
This final one I embossed the patterned paper, adding versamark to the folder first and then adding some jade coloured powder and heating it. This created a fabulous texture.
I then coloured the cardstock underneath with the same embossing powder.
I am super happy with all of these. I still have a couple of pieces left but not quite worked out how to use them…
