Crafty Gals Corner #4 - Try Something New (1/28)


Over at Crafty Gals Corner the challenge this week is to Try Something New.

Maybe there is a technique, fold, item, style you have been putting off trying.. well now is the time to step out of your comfort zone and take a leap.



For this I tried printing on to patterned paper. I was quite selective about the image as I wanted a silhouette, so there wouldn't be any clashing of colours etc. I printed on a sheet from Prima Art Journal paper pad, mounted on white and then on to a piece from Prima Romance Novel. All mounted onto a plain white card.

I outlined the images with a white gel pen to allow them to just slightly separate from the paper and coloured some parts of the butterflies and fairy wings, to add a little more interest. Also for the 'Live, Love, Laugh' too. Then finished up with some pearls. :)


Our sponsors this week are:


Prize: $20 Gift Certificate

AND


Prize: 7 Digital Images




This is something I will happily do again. Printing on to patterned paper is definitely a quick way to pull a card together.

Hope you're all having a great week and do come and play along with us at Crafty Gals, we love to see your work.
Happy hugs
Georgie xx

  5. This card came out so pretty. Love that image and it really stands out beautifully on the paper you chose to print. The white outline really makes it pop. I would not have thought of doing that. Thanks for the inspiration :-)
