3 Ways with CrafTangles Ombre Watercolour Paper Pad

Happy Weekend!

We had a lovely day out yesterday before coming back in time for the football of course!  Wasn't it a great result?!

Among my last DT box from CrafTangles I got a really pretty paper pad so I thought I'd see what different ways I could come up with using the papers on my cards.

For my first card I used the paper in the traditional sense as backing paper.  I matted and layered a die cut, fussy cut element and added a sentiment.  This card will be going to one of my son's teachers.  Hope she likes it!

For my second card I picked a stencil and used texture paste, perfect pearls and distress inks thorough it before finishing with a die cut sentiment.  I think you can see the shimmer quite well don't you?

Finally I went all out and used 3 different coloured sheets of paper from the pad!  I stamped them all with the same image and added a sentiment with distress oxides as it shows up so well on black card.

So there you have it!  I'm off to sit in the garden now if anybody would like to join me.....

Have a great week!

Three very different cards using the papers. I don't us patterned paper much and have just made a few with a pretty pad I had in my stash (a freeby). Love all three but if I had to pick a favourite it would be the third card. Enjoy the sun xx
