Topic: Scrap Recovery
I had a couple of items from the stamp catalog that were HUGE. Though totally different from one another I am featuring them together today - based on size (well there has to be SOME reason to combine projects)... oh yeah, they're both colored with watercolor markers, too.
The first is an elegant arch twined with roses. I pulled some of the color into the background so it would not appear to be 'floating' quite so much. The scallop punch makes another appearance and I used a scropture stamp in the white space.
The next card actually has two items from the stamp catalog on it. The rose background is a background print without a true focal point. I used a script background stamp to stamp over the top of the colored image which softened the look but it still didn't have focus. So I colored up a floral frame and stamped in the center of it with a scripture. This is popped up on foam tape for some dimension.
After mounting on a folded white card base I used a fine line black marker to run doodle lines at the top and bottom.
