Hi everyone! How are you? I am back with a sweet little Valentine card, using the wonderful papers from the Little Street Café papers. I have mostly used the ones in yellow tones. Sooo beautiful papers. I will show you at the end of this post. If you can’t wait just scroll down!
When you get this collection of papers, they look really colourful. With bright colours. But as you might have noticed, I like to tone it down a bit. And to use softer colours. That is of course possible with this collection too. The yellow and pink papers are not too bright, and I use my white gesso, and paint here and there. The gesso is lovely to use, as it is a see-through-colour.
As you can see the girl (Tilda from Magnolia) on the image is holding a lock, I had to add a key to the card. I have glued it on to the beautiful rose from Wild Orchid Craft.
I have hand painted the image, with Distress Ink re-inkers and some Markers. It is a kind of water colour, and I use water colour papers to stamp on. I stamp with a brown colour from Memento, called Rich Cocoa. I have to let it dry for a bit before I start colouring. But I like the softer look you get using brown ink, instead of black. Archival ink is also a brand that is good to use.
Here are the papers used:
