I have one last card for the fab challenge over at Virginia's View to use patterned paper - it closes tonight :(
Like many others, I have lots of patterned paper but find it difficult to use on my cards - I really admire cardmakers who can combine patterns and elements to create layers and collage style designs.
That is what I had in mind when I put together this card:
I die cut my Memory Box bird from polkadot paper by Pink Petticoat and added a wood veneer heart as a wing (with a touch of gold ink on it). I stamped my trusty HA Starburst Lace and gold embossed it on a text paper which I also splattered with some gold ink and shaded around the edge with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. The sentiment is from WPlus9. I layered all of this on some black and gold cardstock offset at an angle for added interest.
I do love a black and gold colour combo! Still not sure though, this is a style of cardmaking that may require more practice....
Thanks for stopping by. Do let me know what you think!
