Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!
For post for PaperTemptress, I want to share with you a card I made for a challenge DT I am on (it went LIVE on my blog “Up in the Night with Kat” about 18 hours ago). I had decided to go a different route with my digi image and chose “Bible Verse – Believe” by StampArt by Kathryne instead of a regular image to color. Since I was using a sentiment digi image, I wanted to use some of my specialty paper from PaperTemptess along with it because the textures of the papers would help give my card detail without distractions.
Here’s how my card turned out:
I really LOVE how the textures from the paper from PaperTemptress gives the card more detail without distractions. If you have an image you want to use, but don’t want to distract from it or just want to add an extra element to your project, you have to check out PaperTemptress.com . . . she has the most AMAZING specialty papers. And the Vintage Silver Lustre has become on of my favorite “go-to” papers because of it’s texture and shimmer . . . plus, you can emboss your printed digi images on it by putting embossing powder on the image right after it prints, while the ink is still wet. I didn’t do that this time with my image, but have done it before and the results are AMAZING!!!
Here’s a few close-up shots of my card showing the texture/shimmer of both
the Vintage Silver Lustre and Onyx Mica Metallic papers:
(Sorry, you have to turn your heads to see this photo the correct way . . .
but no matter what I tried, I couldn’t get this picture to upload to my blog right side up.
But it still shows the wonderful texture and shimmer of the mica/metallic paper.)
Till the next time I’m up in the night.
