I eventually found the time to play with Virginia's current challenge, to use Patterned Paper. You can find all the challenge details HERE.
My card does not really depict a unique way of using patterned paper, but I again wanted to paper piece and to "pop" things up and I had not used this sweet image yet, so here is what I made:
Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (unsure)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black;
Stamps: Unity KOM
Other: Stickles; Pop dots; HB pencil
The shadow around the entire cut out image is done with a simple HB pencil. Various elements are popped up, a bit challenging to see in the photo. It was fun fussy cutting the little bits!
Thanks for the inspiration Virginia!
Have an awesome day everyone!
