Here's a little inspiration from our challenge~Now, there are a few ways I use patterned paper quite a bit--1st as a background panel, 2nd as punched out embellishments, and 3rd to paper piece line images. I use all three of these on my cards!
Here's my first card with details~
I used my favorite poinsettia pot image, and paper pieced it. Then I colored in the pieces that were too small to cut. It took awhile. But it turned out better than I though it would!
Here's my second card with details~
This one was easier--punch out some patterned papers and then add some coordinating background paper! Oh, and did you notice the dry embossed panel? The positive image from last week's dove card! :)
So, what will YOU create today?! What has Jacqueline created today?! Pop on over and see--and please play along with us! Merry stamping!
I'm also submitting these to the Christmas Stamping All Year ANYTHING GOES challenge! :)
