Welcome to my creative space.
I have a new card to share featuring the gorgeous Studio75 Forever In Love paper collection. I adore working with this gorgeous collection which includes such lovely watercolor backgrounds and images that are so perfect for fussy cutting! I've added a stenciled design and color mist to the background along with dimensional flowers, lace and beaded texture which I talk about in the tips and techniques section below.
Tips and Techniques
I used beautiful Little Birdie Crafts flowers available at A.C. Moore that coordinate with the paper to create this lovely focal cluster and tucked in fussy cut images around the edges. I cut up a section of a vintage lace doily to tuck around the edges as well.
The background is stenciled with modeling paste using the Circle of Life Stencil from AALL & Create in the open areas. I tried not to cover up the gorgeous watercolor floral designs printed on the paper. I spritzed lightly with Lindy's Gang Golden Sleigh Bells Starbust mist to highlight the raised design. Once dry, I spattered with Lindy's Cape Cod Coral which is a perfect match for the beautiful paper below.
Here's a close-up of the fussy cut wreath and heart cut from the Forever In Love papers. Here you can see the lovely glimmer from the Lindy's starburst mist.
And another fussy cut piece with flower buds.
I cut this sweet sentiment from the Die Cuts Elements 02 Sheet which includes wonderful sentiments in both English and Polish.
I twisted together a few Pistachio Stamen from the store to tuck into the cluster and used Bambino Glue to adhere Go ManGo Prills to add texture.
