Wednesday’s WOW! #82. Today is a little technique, or a little trick however you like to look at it. It is colouring the Designer Series Paper, particularly the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper with the Stampin’ Blends.
Perhaps you have seen this around the internet so apologies that you have already seen it. It’s not my original idea. I have had this card made for a few weeks and just managing to share it with you now. It might just be a new trick though for you.
The Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper is very pretty already. You really don’t need to add colour but it’s good to add a little different colour to make it for a totally different occasion.
Colouring with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends makes the flowers look more like Poinsettias for a Christmas paper. With this particular print you don’t need to colour the leaves. They will work just as well as they are.
So here is the finished card.
The sentiment for the card is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set punched out with the Timeless Label Punch. They are great Christmas sentiments in this. Add a little of the Scalloped Lace Trim and I cut some gold leafy shapes using the Flourish dies.
It looks pretty Christmas-y now don’t you think?? 🙂
I am sure this would work well for other papers and colours too. I was going to try another one but ran out of time. Add it to the ‘To Do’ list.
