Patterned Paper Challenge


Earlier this week, Nichole Heady issued a Patterned Paper Challenge on her blog. The challenge was to create your own patterned paper by layering images over a background pattern. I LOVED her card with the white dragonflies over top of the polka dots. It had such a fresh, airy feel to it. I wanted to use white craft ink as well. I stamped the flower from Garden of Life in Summer Sunrise ink over the Summer Sunrise cardstock. Then I took the small ladybug from Little Lady and stamped the solid body image in Whisper White Craft ink. I went back and inked up the "dot and head" stamp with More Mustard ink and stamped it over the white bodies. I will definitely use this technique more often. I really like the soft effect. Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Garden of Life, Little Lady (Papertrey Ink); Paper- Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), Whisper White (SU); Ink- Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), Onyx Black (Versafine), Craft Whisper White, More Mustard (SU); Accessories- Swiss Dots Summer Sunrise ribbon (Papertrey Ink), corner rounder, paper piercer, horizontal slot punch (SU)
