I'm Back

I have a card to share.

This is a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil Too.  I love Mo's artwork; her images are just magical.  To check out more from Mo, click on the Mo's button on my sidebar.  Or, you can go to Mo's Group on Papercraft Planet (click button on sidebar).  She often is generous enough to share free digital images there and you can see more samples from the Mo's Dream Team.

Back to my card:   Its such fun to combine different techniques and materials into one project. With today's card, I was able to combine watercoloring, embroidery and punches.

Adding hand embroidery is quite popular on papercrafts right now.  Yes, it does take a little bit of time to add hand stitching, but I find it calming.  I added a modified blanket stitch that I think gives the main panel great texture.  

Another fun aspect of this card was using Origami paper.  Don't the colors and patterns just make the card pop?  I even added embellishments made from this paper as well.  

It feels really good to be creating again.  I can't wait to start another project.

Leave me a comment and let meknow what techniques and materials are your favorites right now. 

Til Next Time,
