I loved the patterned paper card Claire Daly made recently. (You can see it here.) Decided to give it a try. I used Brocade Backgrounds Designer Series Patterned Paper. (Pg 134 if you are looking for it.) I love the colours in this set of papers.
My base card is River Rock (from this years In Colour Collection.) I stamped the swirl (from Baroque Motifs pg 98) using Always Artichoke ink , then selected 2 of the patterned paper designs and cut rectangles to place on the card. My greeting (Sincere Salutations stamp set pg 119) is stamped in Always Artichoke then matted with Chocolate Chip card to help it stand out a little. This was a quick and easy card to put together. I must try it in another colour scheme. It is a great design to use with your favourite patterned paper pack. (Thanks Claire!) It only uses a little of the paper so would be a good one to try to use up leftover scraps too.
My Painting Boy ...
Jack (21 months) did a bit of creating today too. He was getting a bit restless this morning so I decided to set up the paints and some paper. He donned his art smock and got stuck right into a spot of painting. Time to add some of his creations to our art wall.
I took a bit of a risk taking the photo as my camera was upstairs. Wasn't sure how wise it was to duck off to get it, leaving an almost 2 year old with loaded paint brush! Luckily he was quite absorbed in his splotches!
Back soon with more cards and scrapbook pages. Having a creative week!
