Papermania This Time

I’ve been over doing the old Basic Grey a bit recently (can you over do Basic Grey?) so I thought I would play with some Papermania paper for a change. A card for the Magnolia Vs Stampavie challenge blog which has a sketch for us all to have a go at.

Details – The image is coloured with distress inks and Derwent Inktense pencils and I’m loving the paper circle flowers at the moment, I’ve distressed the edges with my seam ripper. Borders were added with a fine marker.

Stamp – Sarah Kay; Stampendous
Ink – VersaFine Onyx Black
Colouring – Tim Holtz Distress inks; Derwent Inktense pencils
Usual Suspects – Silicone glue; Paper trimmer; Scissors; Circle template; Double-sided tape
Other – Shaped Scissors; Buttons; Ribbon; Embroidery thread; Fine marker pen; Seam ripper
