I have made a card today and I would like to share it with you. It is really to show what you can do with a piece of pattern paper.
The base of this card is a piece of patterned paper by Prima Marketing from their Epiphany Collection called 'Divine Exposure'. I sometimes use patterned paper when I don't have much time or when I can't think what to do for a background.
In this case I had already coloured the horse with coloured pencils and I wanted to make a quick card with it but couldn't find anything in my stash that I thought went with it. So i cut a piece out of a 12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper. It was white to start with but had the text at the bottom and the swirls on the left. I added some acrylic paint with a brayer. I used a light blue craft paint and a Sorbet paint in blue and pink over the top. These paints are by Art Anthology and have a little glitter in them. I also used a pallet knife and scraped some white acrylic paint over the top and along the edges. This whole process took approx. 5 minutes. I then stamped the background and the sentiment and glued the horse into place. The panel was then glued onto a white card.
I used Stampotique stamps for this:
I hope I have given you some inspiration to use up your stash of patterned paper. I am sure we all have stacks of it.... :o)
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
