For the Daring Cardmakers this week Leo has issued a killer challenge!
'Patterned Paper Mania'This week your mission if you choose to accept it is to create a card usinga minimum of SIX different patterned papers.
You can use more if you want to but you must use at least six different ones.
After a little bit of a panic at the thought of this one I realised that the current sketch on my other blog The Sketch File would be a great way to get all those patterned papers onto my card. Here's what I made:
I had some new papers arrive this week, so obviously felt compelled to use them! I've taken to buying a few 12x12 papers along with a 6x6 pad whenever possible - its a great way to get an extra dimension to the designs as you get the same pattern in two sizes. It also means I don't buy large scale designs that aren't much use for making cards.
These papers come from Carta Bella - a new company to me, but I'm so impressed with the quality - both 6x6 and 12x12 papers are lovely. The 12x12 have a texture like the Crate Paper ones.
All papers Carta Bella "Beautiful Moments" 6x6 and 12x12, the little birds are cut from one of the papers too
