DT Project #3 (Part 3)




Can you tell I really love these new 7Gypsies 'Lille' papers,stamp and tags - Well, here's my last offering using these gorgeous items.
For this card, the base paper is the reverse of the 'Beautiful' sheet - which Ive randomly rubbed over with some blue Distress Ink.
Ive stamped the words 'Beautiful' and 'Life is Good' (only used the 'Life' part) on a blue coloured strip of paper, again from the 'Beautiful' sheet
The bird image is from the 'Beautiful' paper, which Ive cut out and layered with another section from the 'Beautiful' paper (music score).
The printed numbers are from the 7Gypsies 'Lille' tags and so is the red tag hole on the top of the bird image,Ive coloured the ribbon with red distress stain.
Finally, Ive spritzed a mix of Brushed Corduroy re-inker and water.

The one thing I would say is, don't be scared to cut these papers up - yes, they are wonderful as they are but you can create something a bit more unique if you dare to take your scissors to them.....go on,I dare you!

So lovely - like being given permission to cut up my stash - sometimes I am a little too precious about my papers when I really needn't be!!!

Love the soft colours on this one Paula. That little bird is so cute, I love birds anyway :) The red, blue and cream colour combination is lovely, and I really like the fragments of paper that you have incorporated. This range of papers are fabulous.

This was my favourite sheet from the range too, but all the papers are full of wonderful elements so I do hope people follow your advice and get brave with those scissors!
