Paper Craft Crew 283 – Joy Clair Doodle Flower Background
Welcome back to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge! This week we have a sketch challenge.
I’m also guest design this month for Joy Clair and My Sweet Petunia so I decided to make this with one of the stamps I picked out from the many cute options at Joy Clair. I also needed something for the sentiment, so I picked the Simon Says Stamp die, Kindness Matters, that I bought a while ago and hadn’t had a chance to use yet. Lookie:
GOJUS! I really had to use my MISTI for this because getting a background stamp stamped with Versamark on watercolor paper requires multiple stampings, which is what a MISTI works so well for. I embossed with white embossing powder and grabbed some colors of Distress inks, dabbed them on my craft sheet and spritzed with water and laid my paper face down. I then used a brush to add some colors here and there to bring out the design.
I didn’t get too particular, because I loved the way the inks were reacting with each other.
I paper pieces the greeting and popped it up over some gold cord and fishtail banners cut from card stock from MFT Stamps and Simon Says Stamp.
I added this great self-adhesive sequins from Jillibean soup.
So pretty…I love it!
