Graphicus July Challenge Part Deux

Artylicous will soon have a new CD out ....

Here's a sneak preview of one of the background papers which some of us have been sent out.

I've made two large A5 cards from the one sheet and have used the matching stamps.

The first card is a double styled card based on a half gatefold A5 and a standard A5. The tag on the front made using a brayered resist then over stamped.

Below: The backing paper has been overstamped.

I will add an insert to the card to match the overall colour scheme.

The second card is a more standard A5 card - again using the matching Brocade stamps the background paper has been overstamped and is enhanced by using a Vellum lattice - (courtesy again of Spellbinders) then coloured over gently with the colorbox ink. The front panel was stamped onto a pale greyish card stock and the white in the flowers was re-highlighted with an Inkssentials white pen.

  • Stamps: Elusive Images - Brocade Backgrounds UA4SP0239, Grungy Brocade UA4SP0238, Words of Wisdom UA6GW0193

Wow, these are gorgeous Deby. I love the soft greys you have used.

The first one is my favourite but only just. They're both beautiful.

These are both stunning and impossible to choose between the two. I'd probably end up with a big inky fingerprint on colours this pale!
