Here is some paper I have been mucking around with lately. I love it (Kaszazz ‘On the Surface’ range).
It has some timber, rust, iron, bark, and looks industrial-grunge. Teamed with the lace flowers, and altered metal flower embellishments, I thought it looked cool.
Ready for a whole range of sentiments.
Oh how I love this paper range (Ebony and Ivory from Kasazz):
I used a range of embellishments that I coloured with Alcohol Ink Art Markers so that they matched the yellow flower in the two cards below:
Each card has a ‘Bloom’ on it, as well as some lace ribbon, a coloured embellishment, and a paper clip tab to tie them together.
The yellow in this card below is a sticky pearl I coloured and attached to the paper clip tab. Aren’t they cute?! This card also has a lace flower behind the stamped bloom image, joined together with a brad.
I love the different effects the lace ribbon gives. I so love texture on cards (and all art really).
So the photo doesn’t do it justice – why I keep taking photos when it is bad light I don’t know! Actually, I think it is because with an infant any chance I get is used quickly… 😉
Again, there is space left for a sentiment to be added when needed. The teal and purple flowers I made using a flower punch and layering the punched pieces together after folding the petals and using a lot of glossy accents. I popped a pearl in the middle of the teal flower.
The fake stitching was achieved using a paper piercer (to create the holes equal distances apart) and a distress marker (fine tip) to join every alternate set of holes. I distressed the edges of the purple fern paper with a pair of scissors as I had lost my distressing tool – improvisation works a treat!
I tried to add embellishments which matched the Garden Party colours, as I knew they worked well together. If I get time (or better yet, if I remember), I will take better photos which will show the pop of colour better).
