Vintage Birthday

vintage-birthday I had to make a birthday card today and my friendLOVES wine. I just adore this image from Stamps Happen but it is a lot of work to get it the way I like it. So it is done with a water color wash on Cryogen White paper. I have tried every conceivable way of photographing this card in hopes of getting the fabulous sparkle of the Cryogen White to show up. I have taken photos in the house and outside. I don’t have the best camera and I suppose that is part of the problem. You will just have to trust me when I say that this paper sparkles no matter what coloring medium you choose. It is so AWESOME! Truly it is my most favorite paper to stamp and color on. I also used Basis paper in yellow-green and black.Now is this ribbon fabulous or what??? I found it at Michael’s years ago. I bought plenty of it and I am glad I did. I haven’t seen it anywhere since.

See you all soon!
