Tuesday with tara {take 151}

Happy Tuesday!

Today’s card is a simple one that celebrates some gorgeous watercolor floral paper by Webster’s Pages that I picked up on a recent shopping trip- the cheerful mix of patterns and colors called to me… so I decided to try using it for some paper piecing!  I stamped this fun mug by Impression Obsession first on white card stock, then on the patterned paper.  I trimmed my patterned mug and added a bit of shading, then colored the pens, pencils & paintbrushes in a variety of shades to coordinate with the paper. My white cardstock was trimmed to fit inside the card front and the right edge was trimmed with some old school scalloped scissors 😉

I trimmed a strip of the floral paper to fit a die cut ‘hello’ sentiment (from the Sizzix Side Order die set) I added a simple ‘handmade’ definition stamp in black (an OLD Hero Arts fave!) to help draw the eye to the die cut greeting.

Such a pretty mug of tools!  The little butterfly is also from the spring Side Order die set, I stamped the same definition on the back side of the patterned paper (which has a pale pink pattern).

A little bit of Distress Ink blending and some Nuvo Glitter drops add a bit of extra interest to the background of my card.  I also added a bit of splatter details using Dina’s Scribble Sticks.  They make it soooo easy!

I paper pieced another image as well and made a similar card with it- you can see a closer look at that one on my personal blog later today 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Inky hugs,

Tara
