Citrus Damask (Card No. 3)

It may seem that I am obsessed with my citrus damask papers, but I'm not . . no, really, I'm not. What am I doing then? Well, I'm glad you asked.

I'm on a mission to use every bit of them, so I don't add to my already overflowing drawer of scraps. I made lots & lots of parcel tags (available soon at Pin & Tack) from this cardstock. As with every project, there are always leftovers. Since my motto is "waste not, want not" . . . Wait! Actually, it's "I know that this little piece of paper can be USED FOR SOMETHING!" So, I'm going to use every bit until you cannot find one piece of it in my art studio. (I apologize in advance if you are over it.)

I altered the middle square of cardstock by painting over it, blotting the excess paint off, then splattering it with paint. This technique completely changed the look & feel of it, giving a mixed media style to the card.

Yeah! I used more supplies from my stash. The words are epoxy stickers that I have had in my possession for a very long time. Finally, their words can be heard.

This card was inspired by several challenge blogs - See below for links & details, so you can join in the fun & share your own creations!
