Still working my way through the pile of waxed paper backgrounds that I made. Today features the two-toned leafy swirls in which I placed red dots for berries.
First up is a layered approach that has a first peek at a sleepy mouse stamp I picked up on clearance. It is colored with alcohol markers and bordered by table scraps. One project I worked on in the studio lately was sorting those ever-increasing table scraps. Even though I use them all the time there always seems to be more! I took out all the smallest ones in solids and light patterns and stamped sentiments on them and put them into a separate bin. Now I can sort through to find one that has the right color/meaning and add it to a card. That is the source of this text.
For this one I stamped the sentiment and a small image directly on the waxed paper background to serve as the feature. I used OWH sketch 111 and then added a third stripe between the two specified. There was not enough contrast between the pieces so I bordered all of them with black marker before popping on the feature panel.
Both of these cards have the same papers but what a difference in character!
