Recently I applied for the Graphic 45 2013 Design Team and did not make it to the 30 finalists. On the bright side, I'll have more time to create what I want! I thought I'd show you two cards I made with their French Country paper.
The center rooster piece is a chipboard tag. I didn't have a red ribbon to match so I colored a piece of twill with a Copic marker (E08). I used the 6x6 paper for all the layers. The scale of the paper is just right for cards.
On the inside I stamped some images from the matching stamp sets. I just love the scroll image!
Next up is a card with a sunflower image as the focal point. I cased myself on a Birdsong card I made months ago. It was harder to get the right color balance with this paper. The tag is chipboard with some ribbon and black twine tied through the hole.
Again I stamped the inside, being a stamper at heart. These cards are on display at Impressive Ideas in Roswell, Georgia.
