Paper Funday Thanks


     This months optional theme at The Paper Funday is Give Thanks/Grateful, we are an anything goes challenge for papercraft projects so it doesn't have to be a card.
     To make the background I used a die cut mandala as a stencil, this gave me a lovely background and a pretty papercut to use on another card.
     The inks were a pigment petal set from Craft Artist which had a choice of colours that worked together perfectly. To blend these inks I used a make up brush, the bristles on these are so soft, they don't pull at the stencil even when it's paper.
      The background square was mounted on a narrow mat layer in lilac, with the sentiment cut from the same card and stuck flush to the front.     
     The flowers were die cut from a piece of card decorated with Brusho powders, that's why they have a mottled effect. Adding a little bit of silver mirri helped lift the whole card and with some small silver pearls the flowers were done.
     This type of card is always handy to have in your stash, you never know when you might need one. Please pop over to The Paper Funday to see all the DT inspiration, then come and join us with your project.
