Here’s a beautiful combination of papers from Paper Temptress and a lovely image from Ike’s art.  This image is called Muse 5, isn’t she a stunner?  I am using Copics E00-E02 and E93-E99;  I am using two different sheets of Hambly Clear overlays along with one of their screenprint sheets to complete this card.

The shaped base of the card comes from the Hambly Overlay called Orange Bohemian.  If you check out the product from the link above, you will see the design I cut from the overlay.  From the photo of the overlay on the website, I am using the pattern in the upper left hand side. What’s great is that you will still get to see this pattern on the back of the card, AND, you have so much left of that 12×12 sheet.  (To be honest, I have already used the other parts of this sheet, I had been saving this pattern for a special card; I just love the orange speckle on the rest of the sheet)

 I am using some white cardstock, Neenah Solar White and cut it 5.5 x 11 to create a 5.5″ square.  The image was then printed on the remaining piece of the Neenah Solar White cardstock;  I attached the second Hambly Overlay to the white card front using some adorable Queen&Co brads with Doodlebug sequins, it’s called Brown Heliconias.  The shimmery printed paper is Hambly Studio Screenprint called Script tease.  I definitely recommend the 6×6 package Screenprints as you get a little of everything and always have the perfect paper to match your product.  Finally I added an additional piece of copper mica paper to highlight the image.

Hope that gives you some good ideas for creating a unique card using a bunch of papers (even those great scraps) and layering everything together.  Have a great Thursday!

Cheers, Holley
