Wings and Things

Today I thought I would show a card using items from two of the companies who I have the pleasure of designing for.

The Stamp that you see is from Stamp Addicts and is actually part of a larger stamp which you can find in the new releases on their website. The stamp itself is really substantial and this is probably less than a quarter of it. It's very stylised as you can see and it lends itself really well to picking out small areas and decoupaging.

Now on to the backing paper, which has come from the Bearly Mine Floral Fantasies set. I have been using this set quite a lot lately as it has  a real variety of styles and a nice range of colours. Some of the papers include the cutest little flying bugs too.

My latest favourite thing is importing the papers in to Serif and sizing them to fit my card, which also shrinks the flowers down too. Not something that I did for this particular card, but I will save that to show you another day :o)
