The reason I smile

I’ve been playing with a gorgeous paper pad 
from kaisercraft this week. 

There are so many bits included I think it’s one 
I’ll get a lot of makes out of. 

Some of the papers inside are totally white with
 a glossy pattern added to them. This makes them 
perfect for adding colour to. 

I experimented with adding watercolours 
and brushos, using the gloss as a resist. 

For this make I started by swiping my archival pad 
over the gloss several times and then wiping
 the excess off with a damp cloth.




I chose to mount this on to a watercolour design 
from the pad and ran the archival ink pad around
the edges of both papers to give them a subtle border.



I cut a large and a small flower from one

of the page designs and edged them 
with Potting Soil Archival ink





Using the back of my thumb nail 
I curled the petals and layered 
the flowers together. 

In the centre I added a little button 
coated in alchemy wax.



I completed the card with a sentiment

stamped in Archival aquamarine. 
Again I edged it with the Archival ink. 

The card is finished with a little

Wink of Stella and some liquid pearls for a bit of shimmer :)
