No Printed Papers

That's the challenge over on the Polkadoodle blog this week, show us your card or project but do not use any printed backing papers, you can make your own but no ready made ones.

I made my own paper in photoshop by using a stampie from the Sundae of Seasons CD and dotting it randomly around the paper, I added some wording which I shaped and again randomly placed around the flowers and some little dots to fill the gaps. I used this paper on the bottom section of my card, the top section is embossed using the Crafts Too daisies folder and my big shot machine. I added glamour dust to the embossed part of the design, printed out a large version of the flower twice, shaped the petals and layered one on top of the other, I threaded a silver grey ribbon through the 'buttonholes' on the flower and tied in a bow. I also made a border from the same flowers for the card insert.

Check out the Polkadoodles challenge blog and see what the rest of the design team made of the challenge.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Very effective and pretty, love the insert (you know me!?)
Thanks for the Digital Stamp 'lesson' the other night. I may just get addicted - if only my colouring in didn't let me down. Roll on May for the Copic Class!
