Little Tangles Challenge #68- Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #299 - Favorite Era
Who remembers mulberry paper? Well, just like you, of course I had some laying around too. And I saw something recently on Pinterest, that they sprayed mulberry paper with water and pulled it apart. It's an old technique, but one I had forgotten. So, I trimmed two strips in different colors, sprayed them lightly, pulled gently without tearing, to get this fiery look, and adhered the two strips to the card. I think it makes the couple look steamy, like a hot romance. Don't you think? lol
For the sentiment "Congrats!" I searched fonts on my pc and found this beauty called "Bodoni MT Black." I typed the title in Word and once I had the font size I liked I printed it out on matching paper. I cut it out and to get this Art Deco effect I trimmed the ends with just the top part of a heart punch and adhered to card. And it's another great card with absolutely
no stamping. Added some adhesive bubble gems to give it some extra sparkle and this roaring 20's beauty is simple, but stunning.
I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by! ~Kim
