Hello. Welcome. There is a curious little challenge going on over at the Unity Show and Tell fb group where they want you to stamp an image and leave it uncoloured, then use some patterned paper and let that be the star. No high art here but some nice results and I decided that you might be interested in the idea, maybe also being an owner of a small stack of patterned paper, and that I may wish to remember this technique myself at a later date. I actually made two cards. Here's the sheet of paper I started with...
This came from Nille (read woolworths/target type shop) a few years ago. I picked up a few themed packs of 5 or 6 30 x 30 papers. Some parts are embossed or have glitter on them. This one is obviously wedding themed. The first thing that caught my eye was the lovely border on the RHS
I cut a section of the border and added to a white card that I had stamped the image from Unity Big Time Special and then ran a chili red Promarker around the edges. I think it works quite nicely with the heart balloon and the red glittery hearts on the patterned paper.
Then I did this. I liked that panel in the top left of the paper sheet with the two champagne glasses on it. I stamped Unity George and Scarlett on white card and fussy cut them. I cut out the panel and cut along the top of the lower frame so I could tuck their legs behind the frame. I also cut along each side of the stem of the champagne glass so I could thread Scarlett's skirt behind the glass. Love how that gives dimension to the glasses. I mounted on a brown card base and used another piece of paper from the set t stamp the congratulations sentiment.
As I said, interseting technique and a great way to use a bit of patterned paper.
Thanks for dropping by. Hugz
