Hi, my name is Julia and I just don’t know how to use patterned paper. How’s that for an introduction 🙂
I love patterned paper. I love to buy it, I love to look at it, but when it comes to using it, I just don’t know what to do. I’m not sure if it’s my style of card making, but I always feel that the patterned paper is making my card worse, not better. To err on the side of caution, I decided to just cover my entire card front with the same pattern on this project today 🙂
For my focal point, I used a super cute image by Stamping Bella and colored it with Inktense pencils. As you know, I usually work in layers with these pencils, working my way up from the brightest color to the darkest. For some additional interest, I added some pearlescent watercolors on top of the finished image to make it sparkle and shine. Alternatively, you could mist it with water into which you add some Perfect Pearls.
