I don't think it's any secret that I am a fan of patterned paper and my cards usually include it.
But today felt more like a "make my own background" sort of day.
I wanted to use my Dina Wakley "Lonely Girl" stamp and she was crying out for some sort of artsy layered creation.
The outer card is made from matboard, which took the mists and stamping just beautifully.
The inside of the card is made with the Pop 'n Cuts Base A2 Card kit, cut from both cardstock and canvas. The canvas is misted and stamped and then mounted to the cardstock for stability.
I love going stash diving when making these artsy creations. I found some filagree wings and a bejeweled crown charm. The primitive heart is die cut from plastic paper, embossed, shifted, debossed, inked, silver-penned edged and then wrapped with silver cording.
The greeting is on my new Fancy Frame die. The larger piece was cut from plastic paper, stamped with the greeting, and then layered over the smaller piece, cut from cardstock. I used tiny eyelets to connect the two pieces.
The medallion at the top of the card is one of my older Sizzlits, similarly inked.
I used a combination of Luminarte and Tattered Angels mists - whatever I had that was in the orange/yellow/fuschia family.
This card was a lot of fun!
