If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

Specialty Papers

You know those gorgeous and unusual designer papers you come across that you just have to buy because they are so beautiful, and then you put them in a folder to use on some special project, but you never do because they're too pretty to use? Or is it just me who does that? Well, that was the challenge I issued to my fellow CCEE'ers for the third Monday. Make a project using some kind of specialty paper...flocked, metalic, embossed, vellum..to name a few possibilities. I chose a lavender tinted printed vellum. I stamped the pansy using white pigment ink and embossing powder. Photographing this card was difficult and the embossing ended up looking cream, but it truly is white on white.

Recipe: stamps- pansy (PSX), butterfly (Inkadinkado); iink- white pigment (Colorbox); paper- white, lavender Bazzil, printed translucent lavender crescent (The Paper Company); accessories- Cuttlebug embossing folder, white ep.
