Papertrey Ink birthday card

Hi everyone,

I so enjoyed using black for a card that I played around with another one for the PTI blog hop today. This is a very simple card using a stamp from Harvest Berries. I used pearlescent paint on the leaves and in a thin wash over the double ended banner die cut so the black would show through..



This really quite shiny but the camera hasn't picked that up too well.

Thanks for looking in.

Hugs

  7. What a chic card Carol. I bet pearl-ex would work too. You've added just the right amount of the green touches.

    I've been out of the blog world for a while with family concerns. It is so wonderful to click and a thumbnail and end up on your doorstep. I'll be coming back to visit some of the posts that have eluded me of late. Thanks for taking the time to share.
