Welcome everyone and happy Sunday!
My passion for crafting is most definitely papercraft. There is nothing more rewarding for me then to start with a blank canvas, be it cardstock or card base and create something appealing.
Lately, I’ve been inspired by quilling and wonder why I haven’t looked into it before. I love the idea of manipulating paper to form something beautiful. Would’nt this be perfect as a wedding gift?
I wanted to try my own thing with this paper technique and decided to use the Peony Bouquet stencil to get me going. Once I added ink to one of the blossoms through the stencil, I formed 1/4″ paper strips to follow the outlines of the flowers and leaves. The outside heart “wall” is formed from 1/2″ strips of paper.
I’ve kept the supplies easy and mainly used what I had on hand for my first try at this technique. I can’t wait to try another and improve my skills!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope I’ve inspired you to try something new with your cardmaking supplies!
