Design Team Project #2 featuring Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe (posted by Lesley)

Hello Everyone,

Today, I have my second project to share with you, using the fabulous Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers.

I've made an 8 x 8 card using one whole sheet from the pad called Mercurial Masterpiece.  I absolutely love this particular design and couldn't bear to cut it up so I cheated and simply used some colouring pencils to colour in some of the features on the design.

The paper roses were made using bits left over from my first project ........... these papers are too lovely to waste even the smallest scrap!

As there is only a minimum of stamping (the sentiment on the Tattered Banners) on this card it would be a simple but very effective card for a beginner to make and I think most of us like a trip back to childhood with the pencil colouring, lol.  There are lots of easy to follow tutorials online for the papers roses and one of them is extremely accessible because it's done by our lovely teamie, Hels.  Look down the lefthand sidebar of her blog and click on the pic to take you to the tutorial.

Don't forget if you would like to be in the random draw to win these fab products leave a comment HERE on Gillian's post and next week our little Minxy, Nicky, will be revealing her projects.  There's bound to be lots of inspiration for us all.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and I hope the sun  is finally going to shine as the forecasters have been telling us.  Dare I hold my breath, lol!
