Using what you have.

Times are tough, don’t let that stand in your way, make your own matching set of papers. I created this matching set of paper with color washes. If you don’t have color washes make your own using Rit dye or water soluble reinkers. If you’re not sure if they are water soluble, just drop them in water if the melt into the water you’re good to go, if they float on top or bead up, sorry not the right stuff.
I got some decorative paper very cheep on sale but the colors were not so good. A quick spray of color wash did wonders for these papers. I also sprayed the background card stock and some coffee filters so very quickly I had a matching set of papers.

I cut the flowers on the bottom from the coffee filters using the Sun flower 2 die template.
The boarder was cut using the Rose Borderability Grand while still in the die template I inked it with embossing ink then sprinkled different color embossing powders onto the different areas.

Spellbinders Blog

I’m the feature artist on the Spellbinder’s Blog
I have had so much fun being a part if this design team. I am so happy having the opportunity to meet all the wonderful artist on the team. Of course, I have love all the inspiration I have received from the design team and all the wonderful products.
This is a book I did by cutting water color paper with the Butterfly die template. It was then covered with Opals and heated. The sun flower was done the same way. The frog was made by pouring the melted Opals into a Krafty lady mold. The pages were folded then cut with the fold inside the die cutting edge.
