Now...I know that for some out there, the following may be an unfamilliar experience, but hopefully NOT for all. Sometime back I was in my local hangout Alice In Paperland and I saw this beautiful paper in amongst the Christina Re papers. I believe it is by Artee, but please don't quote me on it.
I immediately started comparing the colours to those I had in my stash (mainly SU colours) and the brain started clunking from there. I was also drawn to the bird motif. Having recently aquired the SU XL Brid Punch......the cogs were gaining momentum. This led to the only solution to the problem......buy the paper and have some serious playtime!!!!
Here's what I came up with.....
Essentially all the cards have the same layout and embossing, I just changed the colours to bring out what was in the paper. They do not have sentiments yet, so I can quickly add them for any occasion needed.
This paper used Optix Musk and SU Soft Suede and Pink Pirouette.
Same paper and cplours.......different look!!!
I love this combo.....SU Old Olive, Basic Grey and Baja Breeze.
And finally, SU Soft Suede and Bashful Blue.
I flattened out my So Swirly Wheel (which since doing so am using SO much more) and clear embossed the pattern, which ties in nicely with the swirls on the paper.
I made 8-10 of these in all and I think are a great general kinda card.
Thanks for dropping by. Have a wonderfully craft day!!
