I am trying to try new things (or new to me) in cardmaking. Today's effort is using printed paper as the background for a stamped image (which, in this case, is a digi stamp from Bugaboo).
I printed the Bugaboo image on a snippet of patterned paper -- purposefully choosing a pattern that was muted and not distracting. I then used a circle die to cut it out. Using the same die, I cut a circle in the middle of a second, coordinating printed piece and inset the stamped image into the space. They are both mounted on a car made from SU River Rock card stock. I think the lighter circle really draws the eye without the pattern competing with the print. What do you think?.
The sentiment is Hello, a die from Stamplorations, with a few pale pink sequins added for interest.
Using two patterns was inspired by the current Butterfly Challenge. Mrs. A is also introducing another of her amazing fancy folds, but combining the stamping on patterned paper and inset die-cuts was as much challenge as I was up to.
This card is for these challenges:
Butterfly Challenge #162 -- Level 2: 2 patterned papers and colors (I believe I have all three -- light and dark lavender and pale pink.)
Pammie's Inky Pinkies #2141 -- anything goes
Pixie's Snippet Playground # 413 -- use snippets (center image and sentiment from snippets)
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -- use patterned paper
Word Art Wednesday #511 -- anything goes
