I can't believe my sweet friends Joy and Daisy chose me as Eclectic Paperie's blogger of the week! YIPPIE! Oh wait, now I have to come up with some GOOD stuff! Joy, can I back out of this? Hopefully the mojo gods will be smiling on me this week!
What a mishmash of different papers on these 2 cards, huh? I'm not sure what inspired me to put them together, but they all seemed to have similar colors in them. I think they just needed these fun little flowers from the Paper Salon Create-a-Flower set to tie them together!
My favorite paper this year has got to be this sweet red polka dot shabby paper (Cherry Tomato) from Daisy D's. I find a reason to use it on everything! Joy and Daisy, I'll take a case of it with my next order. I'm on my 5th 12 x 12 sheet of it! The yellow dotty paper is by Chatterbox, "Guest Eyelet" and the floral one is by Pebble's inc, "Loverly Flower".
For the flowers, I usually don't think of using watercolor paper for cartooney images. I had a scrap of it so I tried it with these flowers, and it seems to give a more country, casual look. I think I may try using my watercolor paper more; it really gives a great effect with the aquapainter. I used more mustard ink on the flowers. The fun little corner on the tall card is from Prima Pop-ups, "detail" pattern.
