The World Is A Canvas

This is my second post for today.  A clean-and-simple birthday card awaits you one post down!

Hello again.  :D


This card has an eclectic look to it.  I wanted to try something different.  The base is stamped with Hero Arts' Antique Background.  Beyond that, all the colorful layers are die cuts from K & Company.

I like this sentiment --

Oooo! That background stamp is absolutely delish, Colleen! And I love that this makes me feel just a little bit cooler with the addition of that sweet, little leaf! Aaaah for it to be fall again. Sigh. Thanks so much for playing along with my Cardstock Challenge at Papercraft Star!

Eclectic, yes, and it's a look that's difficult to pull off and have it look good. You've managed that beautifully!

This one is just beautiful. I have looked at the K&C die cuts and wondered how they would turn out on a card. Well, you just nailed it with this one and may make me buy some to play with. I love how the colors worked out and your sprinkling of pearls was just genius!
hugs,
Ellen

This is so pretty

I have collage creations on the brain today (that's the topic for today's Stretch Your Stamps lesson), so this is quite a treat to see! You mixed these elements so very nicely, Colleen! That background is so beautiful, and I just LOVE how you scatter those pearls around so artfully. I've tried but just can't get mine to look "right" or scattered when I try something like this. Yours are perfect!
