As excited as I was to begin making Christmas cards a few months ago…. I’m ready to get on to other things!ï»¿
So, here is a totally non-holiday card. Â The birds image started as a doodle a few years ago. My hubby said “You should take that to the computer and play with it.”
Hence Wordbirds were born. I love opening the image in Photoshop and “filling” their wings and bodies with colors and patterns. I enjoy printing these birdies on an assorted array of papers such as watercolor, Cryogen White, and heavy weight card stocks.
Today I’ve printed on a digital paper called Pure White Gloss.
Pure White Gloss from TheÂ Papertemptress storeÂ is the same paper that most of your favorite high end glossy magazines are printed on. I love thisÂ text weight glossy paper for printing my birds! My card and post-it note cover also feature Recycled Classic Natural. It has such a richly textured surface and takes a rubber stamp image beautifully.
These projects are very clean and simple, yet the contrasting textures add such a nice touch. I’m enjoying experimenting with all the lovely papers to be found at the Papertemptress store. You can order most of these specialty papers in very small quantities if you choose. Isn’t that such a nice way to try them out before investing in a whole pack?!
Stop by and drool over some of Â those fabulous papers! Â ;D
