NOW ! - on to this weeks dare - we have a team dare this week, and we were thinking.....with so many new things /latest papers/ trendy stuff constantly coming on the market, we thought it would be nice to have a look back, and dig out some of our 'old' papers and embellishments and make a card with our 'preloved' treasures. I think the tendency these days is to get on the 'latest must have' band wagon, sometimes, its nice to recognise what we already have- even if it isn't the 'latest' embellishment/paper.
When I started out cardmaking I used the peel-offs and sticky things like most peeps did. But as they were part of a dare before I have ignored them this time. I then discovered CD Roms and the variety of pics & matching backgrounds they offer. My first card is how I would have used them then. The second card is after I discovered the magical world of patterned papers!!!!
Now I am far more bold with colour!!
The image is from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Angels & Fairies CD-ROM.
Background papers : DCWV Far East Pack (rusty colour)
