Today I have been to the Papetiere paper mill shop in Aberdeen http://thepapeterie.com/
.......Oh! my goodness, I could have spent so much more money that I did!!!! However, restraint was the order of the day today. I did buy papers, ribbons, a spellbinders shapeabilities set of crosses for easter etc a few peel-off and some kanban card, so I am going to be busy.
I thought i would share one of the two steam~punk cards I made this week:
So here we are then. I used a very thick matt red base card onto which I glued some gold fibre paper. On top of the gold fibre paper I put the textured muted rose paper over the top of which I put red card that had been embossed. I then glued the image onto that and wrapped red ribbon around it making a bow (pretty much basic one) and tucked the ends of the bow back around the whole thing and stuck it down at the back.
Then I put black ribbon around the card about a quarter the way down and placed the image over the top , sticking it down with double sided sticky fixers. I used peel-offs for the Happy Birthday greeting on the top right hand side of the image. I finished it all off with some peel-off dots and flowers, and pearls.
All images I print are done using a Kodak printer with kodak ink and kodak premium photographic paper.
