Hey folks Tamiko here.. Today I am feeling a little under the weather but I was able to stamp and color an image to create a card. I have been staring at a little wooden birdie on my desk for well over a week and I vowed to also to add him, some kinda way. The papers I recycled were brown kraft shipping paper. Here is my card for today.
As with all paper projects you can't do anything unless you start with paper. First thing I do make sure I have what's needed by creating my favorite papers with any of the Arnold Grummer Paper Mill Kits. The directions can be found here. After my paper was made I stamped the image and painted it using Colour Arte Twinkling H2Os . I fussy cut the image and adhered it to the base of the card with Helmar's Craft & Hobby PVA glue. I added some lace trim and hand stamped a sentiment on painted paper.. and embellished with a wooden bird.
This card was simple and short and yes I could have used regular papers.. but I like the texture of my handmade papers. The texture alone will win every time.
