I'm always so grateful for the generosity in our crafting community. I have received some amazing little packages in the mail recently! Without mentioning names, BIG thanks to ALL of you, from the bottom of my heart!!
All the tons of inspiration out there is also appreciated … Lin, and Karin, shared some gorgeous cards for a challenge blog recently. I fell in love with their papers, and since they've been out-of-stock since they used them, I set about creating my own - do you do this, too? [Please tell me it's me being creative, not cheap!!! LOL] I used a sheet of wood-patterned paper, lots of Altenew stamps, and Distress Oxide inks.
I should have shown a photo of the original paper... pretty basic beige wood grain - I added Copic coloring to add the color like that of Karin's card. White acrylic paint was flicked on for the highlights.
Here are the papers that they used - you know, just in case you DON't want to create your own! The LIKE YOU die is a prize from SSS I couldn't pass up this fun coordinating set of sentiments from the fabulous Cathy Zielske.
Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
