So what do you do if you spy a piece of patterned paper that you fall in love with, but you swore not to buy anymore until a significant portion of your stash has been used? Well, you stamp your own, that's what! I call it copycat designer paper, lol. This entire piece of background paper was stamped using assorted stamps from Papertrey Ink to make it look like this. Pretty close, right? I plan on doing this more in the future, because I really don't want to buy more paper, especially because I usually only use it once or twice and then it sits there collecting dust.
Anyway, about the rest of the card:
This is a new image coming out Jan. 11, that's a week away, from Lili of the Valley. The sentiment is included. I colored the lovebirds with Copics.
Hope it inspires you to try your own patterned paper, let me know how it goes if you try it! Thanks for visiting!
